Dr Rebecca Park is a Psychology Research Fellow of the Oxford Character Project. Rebecca holds a PhD in Positive Psychology from the University of Lincoln, entitled ‘Mindfulness-Based Strengths Practice: A ‘toolbox’ for self-efficacy in higher education’. Rebecca holds a BSc in Psychology and an MSc in Psychological Research Methods from the University of Lincoln. Both her BSc and MSc dissertations explored the virtue of humility and its role in leadership, but her recent academic work has looked at character strengths more broadly and how character can be effectively developed in higher education. In her spare time, Rebecca sits on the steering group of the British Association of Christians in Psychology. She is married to Ben and together they enjoy hiking trips, playing music and hosting dinner parties.
