Biography


Dr. Deirdre O'Shea, F.Ps.S.I., C.Psychol.Ps.S.I., is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Work and Employment Studies at the Kemmy Business School, University of Limerick. She is a Fellow of the Psychological Society of Ireland and a chartered work and organisational psychologist.

Deirdre's research interests include: psychological resource-based interventions, self-regulation, work motivation, emotions and emotion regulation, trust, proactive behaviour, occupational health psychology, and voice and silence in the workplace, amongst others. As a work and organisational psychologist, she is interested in examining these topics in the context of work in its broadest sense, including employment, entrepreneurship, sporting organisations and political fora.

Together with her colleagues, she received the 2017 Best Paper Award in the European Journal of Work and Organisational Psychology, awarded by the European Association of Work and Organisational Psychology (EAWOP) and sponsored by the Centre for Creative Leadership.


She is involved in various national and international collaborative research projects investigating these topics and has received research funding from the Health Research Board (2020-2021), Erasmus+ (2016-2018), the Irish Research Council (2014-2016), Enterprise Ireland (2008, 2009), and European Association of Work and Organisational Psychology (2013), amongst others. She has also received funding for teaching related activities from the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning (2014).

Deirdre has published her research in outlets such as: the Journal of Occupational Health Psychology, Journal of Organizational Behavior, Journal of Occupational and Organizational Psychology, Journal of Vocational Behaviour, International Review of Sport and Exercise Psychology, Work and Stress, Applied Psychology: An International Review, Personality and Individual Differences, and European Journal of Work & Organisational Psychology, amongst others. In 2015, she co-edited a special issue in the Journal of Occupational and Organisational Psychology (Vol. 88, Issue 3) on the topic of resource-based interventions in the workplace. Deirdre was a member of the Scientific Committee for the European Association of Work and Organisational Psychology (EAWOP) Congress, held in Dublin in May 2017. She additionally co-organised an EAWOP Small Group Meeting in 2013.

Deirdre completed her PhD and M.Sc. in Work & Organisational Psychology from Dublin City University in 2011 and 2005 respectively, and her B.Sc. in Psychology from University College Dublin in 2002. She received a DCUBS research scholarship to complete her PhD research, which received a Highly Commended Award (Management and Governance Category) in the 2012 Emerald/EFMD Outstanding Doctoral Research Awards.

Deirdre has lectured at the University of Limerick, Dublin City University, Oscail (National Distance Education Centre) and the Centre for Talented Youth in Ireland (CTYI). She has been an international visitor at the
Pontifical Catholic University of Chile (2016, 2018), Humboldt University, Berlin, Germany (2012, 2017, 2018), University of Mannheim, Germany (2017), University of Guelph, Canada (2014, 2015), University of Pavia, Italy (2019), Northeastern Illinois University, Chicago (2014), and the University of Heidelberg (2013).

Deirdre is currently supervising 7 PhD research scholars, and has previously supervised 7 to completion. She has supervised over 100 taught masters dissertations, and additionally supervises a number of undergraduate final year projects on occasion.

Current Research Interests and Projects:

As a work and organizational psychologist, my broad focus is on the application of psychological principles to various applied settings. My research focus lies primarily at the level of the individual, and fundamentally, I am interested in topics that promote the self-management skills of individuals, and contribute to their achievement, well-being and/or optimal functioning, including:
  • Work motivation, self-regulation and proactive and adaptive behaviours
  • Psychological resource based interventions to enhance motivation, well-being and performance behaviours
  • Occupational health psychology, including positive psychology and resilience
  • Emotions and emotion-regulation, both intra- and interpersonal emotion regulation
  • Self-regulated learning
  • Silence and voice in the workplace
  • Interpersonal processes and behaviours, including trust, incivility and aggression

Examples of current research projects are outlined below. At times, there are opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to join research projects for the duration of their dissertation. Interested students should contact: deirdre.oshea@ul.ie

Looking at the Bright Side of Work (BSOW)This international research project investigates the ways in which the experience of work can be enhanced. It uses psychological interventions to enhance the psychological resources of employees, exploring the intersection of self-regulation and popular approaches such as positive psychology, mindfulness and coaching. Research published by the international BSOW group received the 2017 Best Paper award in the European Journal of Work and Organisational Psychology. This project was funded by the Irish Research Council (2014).

Interpersonal emotion regulation and trust in leaders
Critical to public acceptance of, and adherence to, the advice and decisions of medical and political leaders in the COVID-19 pandemic crisis is that citizens trust in these individuals and their communications. Compliance with requests and policies that necessitate personal cost and sacrifice is the behavioural outcome of a complex internal psychological dynamic, but the process is significantly influenced by the perceived trustworthiness of the leader making the appeal. Thus, in this project, jointly funded by the Health Research Board and Irish Research Council, we investigate the emotion regulation strategies used by national leaders and look at how they influence perceived trustworthiness and motivate compliance with COVID 19 restrictions.


Fix the Fixing (FtF): Proactive quelling of Sports Events Manipulation
For more information see: http://fixthefixing.eu

Match-fixing represents an ongoing threat to the integrity, reputation and social welfare dimension of sports. Fix the Fixing (FtF) is an EU funded project across 6 countries which aims to understand the risk and protective factors of match fixing. It will develop a user-friendly educational tool that will be used by stakeholders to increase sports peoples awareness of corruption, fraud and match-fixing across different levels and types of sport, teach coping skills to resist and combat match-fixing temptations, and educate about the proper reporting of match-fixing incidents.

  • 2015 Psychological Science - Business, Psychological principles are relevant to many applied areas of study, including health, engineering, business, education, sports as well as counselling and clinical populations. As a result, academic psychologists in third level institutions often reside in diverse departments and faculties, and are thus frequently geographically dispersed. Although, psychologists may collaborate within the departmental structures to which they belong, limited interaction across departments and faculties hinder communication on up-to-date research and teaching in psychological science. For example, despite occasional information exchange at various events at the University of Limerick, no formal or informal structure exists that systematically facilitates information exchange and collaborations for the purpose of promoting psychological science. PPS-UL is the first platform in Ireland to address such an issue and may serve as a model for similar future initiatives.

    The superordinate goal of PPS-UL is to facilitate information exchange among academics interested in psychological science. It is thus designed as a network that spreads across departments and faculties at UL. The platform is an open forum with the goal to empower individual academics to discuss and develop paradigms and particular research or teaching ideas via the platform and to create links to other academics. This novel network structure does not fall into the usual categories of research units, centres or institutes at our university; however, it will promote engagement in them.
