Jodie Jackson Author and Researcher

Jodie Jackson is a campaigner, researcher and author of two books: ‘You Are What You Read – why changing your media diet can change the world’ and Little Ruffle and the world beyond’, an illustrated children’s book introducing solutions stories to the next generation. She holds a Master’s Degree in Applied Positive Psychology from the University of East London. She has conducted research on the psychological impact of news information on the reader, and in particular the role of positive news and its perceived effects.
