Conclusions & Future Directions


Dr. Philip Powell PhD is a Research Fellow in Health Economics and Decision Science at the School of Health and Related Research at the University of Sheffield, United Kingdom. He is a Chartered Psychologist and Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society and has degrees from the Universities of Sussex and Sheffield. His doctoral thesis was on self-disgust in the context of depression. Current research interests include the role of emotions in health, wellbeing, and consumer behaviour; quality of life research; and methods in health economics. He has published his work widely in leading international journals and previously co-edited The Revolting Self: Perspectives on the Psychological, Social, and Clinical Implications of Self-Directed Disgust (Routledge, 2015). He enjoys playing guitar, hiking, weight lifting, going on adventures with his family, and dislikes coconut. He's a recent vegetarian.Prof. Nathan Consedine PhD works in health psychology in the Department of Psychological Medicine at the University of Auckland, New Zealand. His original training is in the basic understanding of emotion and emotion regulatory processes, evaluating how these factors may be linked to physical and mental health. He has held positions at Long Island University (Brooklyn) and Columbia University and returned to New Zealand in 2009 to begin testing specific ideas about the role of emotions in human behaviour in experimental and clinical designs. Current research interests include experimental studies of disgust, fear, and embarrassment, studies of medical compassion, and the links between emotion regulatory skills and health. He has published more than 150 scientific works and is an Associate Editor and reviewer for numerous international journals. He enjoys fishing, tennis, playing with his children, and listening to the sorts of music that his colleagues dislike. He's not a vegetarian but thinks he probably should be.
