Netta Weinstein

Senior Lecturer in Social and Environmental Psychology, Cardiff University

I study how motivation and environmental support, for example for basic psychological needs, determines the quality relationships and well-being. I examine these topics in relation to adaptive self-regulation, such as the regulation of negative emotions and psychological stress, as well as effort and care extended to relationships. In addition, I study the links between nature and human experience. I examine the function of nature as an energising agent and a catalyst for connecting to one’s environment and toward other people.
