(PhysOrg.com) -- Could using some simple psychological techniques help your business through the recession? According to academics at Bangor University's leading School of Psychology, the answer is a resounding "yes!"

As Dr John Parkinson, Senior Lecturer at the School of Psychology explains; "Using positive aspects of psychology could assist businesses to develop the strengths that their employees have, to harness their motivation or to help their employees adapt to change. Psychological techniques could also be used to create better relationships within the company, and with customers and suppliers. Whatever the technique, if it helps your business beat the recession then surely you should consider it?"
