About Rebecca Borcsok
Hello, my name is Rebecca Borcsok, and I am a Research Assistant working on Project Soothe. I graduated with an MSc in Research Methods in Psychology from University of Reading. My research interests are reward, including substance and behavioural addictions, and ADHD and anxiety in adolescents and young adults. The effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on mental health and wellbeing has highlighted the importance of nurturing ways to soothe ourselves for our mental health. So I am excited to be working on a project that aims to do this and improve wellbeing in adults, children, and young people.
