Juliet Hassard is a Lecturer in Organisational Psychology at Birkbeck, University of London. Hassard is a candidate for PhD Applied Psychology at University of Nottingham. She obtained her MSc in Occupational Health Psychology also from Nottingham. She finished her BA in 2006 from University of Manitoba.
Prior to joining Birkbeck she was a Research Associate at the Institute of Work Health and Organisation of University of Nottingham.
Hassard has always had a strong interest in the role that psychological and social factors play in physical and mental health, both in modifying the risk of disease and in promoting the sustainable health and well-being of individuals and communities. Her research interests lie in the intersection of these three disciplines within the applied context of understanding the psychological, social and environmental impacts on health and illness. She has a strong interest in understanding how applied psychology, or more broadly applied social sciences, can utilise the work environment to prevent illness and disease, but moreover, promote the sustainable health and well-being of workers, organisations and communities.
Some of her publications include:
- Leka, S., Hassard, J. & Yanagida, A. (2011) Occupational stress in psychiatric hospital nurses in Japan: The impact of the psychosocial work environment and symptoms of general wellbeing. Journal of Psychiatric Nursing and Mental Health Services, 19(2), 123-131.
