It is the measure of a person’s ability to handle changes in their situation and to consider problems and jobs in new and imaginative ways. U.K. researchers determined that patients can be divided into three classes according to their level of psychological flexibility. In recent years, there were more and more people who were experiencing one form of psychological problem or another that required treatment. NHS England reported receiving referrals for more than 1.4 million patients who needed mental health therapy in 2017.

But my lab bench is my laptop and I mostly conduct observational studies on the way people use the Web to communicate. I do experiments, too.
