The Centre for Research in Social and Psychological Transformation (CREST) is a hub of internationally recognised research activity in the field of psychological therapies.
CREST focuses research on interventions and methods that support enhancements in psychological and social wellbeing, as well as processes at the interface between the psychological and social domains.
The work of the research centre is organised around four clearly identified themes in which members of CREST have achieved, or are close to achieving, international recognition. CREST has its own therapy clinic based at the Whiteland campus.
The ‘Health Foundation’ funds CREST Researchers to evaluate i-THRIVE, the implementation of a new CAMHS service delivery framework to improve treatment outcomes for young people’s mental health.
