Geetanjali Basarkod

Research Manager, Australian Catholic University

Geet recently completed her PhD in Psychology at the Institute for Positive Psychology and Education. Along with her supervisors, Professor Joseph Ciarrochi and Dr. Baljinder Sahdra, she developed the Six Ways to Well-Being (6W-WeB); a questionnaire that assesses the frequency and motivation for six behaviours that promote well-being. It was developed to enable clinicians who use behaviour-based interventions to measure their clients’ well-being in behavioural terms, rather than by measuring affective states or distress symptomology.

Geet now works in the capacity of a postdoctoral researcher with Professor Herb Marsh, in the field of Educational Psychology. She is involved in several projects on self-concept, including those that explore the effects of school types, immigrant status and gender.
