About me

Emma Halliwell is an Associate Professor in Psychology. Her research examines sociocultural influences on body image and conformity to gender norms. Most recently her work has focused on interventions to challenge restrictive societal norms around appearance, gender and materialstic values in primary and secondary school settings. These interventions apply and integrate social-cognitive theories of attitude change and theories of​ embodiment and positive body image.
