Monica Sood is a PhD Researcher in Psychology at the University of Southampton, Faculty of Environmental and Life Sciences.

Academic background:

Research interests

My primary research interests are in psychosis, psychotic-type experience, and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) for psychosis. My research to date has focused on investigating specific cognitive and attachment-based factors associated with the maintenance of psychotic-type experience. My PhD research aims to determine whether changes in certain psychotic-type symptoms and recovery are accounted for by key cognitive, affective, and behavioural factors, as predicted by attachment theory, in both analogue and clinical populations.
