Dr Margaret McLafferty is a Research Associate in Ulster University. Margaret completed her BSc (Hons) psychology degree, a Master of Research, and her PhD at Ulster University.  Her research examines the impact of adverse childhood experiences and maladaptive parenting practices on future psychopathology and suicidal behaviour, focusing on factors which promote psychological wellbeing and the development of adaptive emotion regulation and coping strategies.

Her research includes secondary data analyses of the Northern Ireland Study of Health and Stress (NISHS), examining the mental health impact of childhood adversities in the Northern Ireland population (n=1,986). Margaret also co-ordinated a large-scale longitudinal study, which used Qualtrics software to collect data from student participants, to identify risk and protective factors for mental health and wellbeing. The Ulster University Student Wellbeing Study (UUSWS) was conducted as part of the World Mental Health (WMH) International College Student Surveys.

Attendees should bring their research questions to discuss on the day
