  • Dr. Chua Sook Ning is a lecturer and clinical psychologist at National Institute of Education. Her research focuses on motivation, need satisfaction and well-being in the context of social relationships. She is particularly interested in cross-cultural issues of support and self-motivation strategies. For instance, can a person be autonomously motivated in a controlling environment? Can social norms buffer the negative effects of control?

    She is also interested in using social media to de stigmatize mental illness and population wide mental health interventions.
