Written work

Emma Agnew and I wrote an article for the APS InPsych Magazine which described how collaborative formulation, the Power Threat Meaning Framework and Community Psychology can provide alternatives to psychiatric diagnosis.

My doctoral thesis focuses on inter-professional collaboration in the context of children’s social care. The thesis is currently in submission for peer review.

During my clinical psychology training, I was part of a team which conducted a systemic review focusing on advanced functional neuro-imaging for epilepsy surgery candidates. I also completed specialist projects exploring ‘Psychological Wellbeing in Services that Support People who are Homeless’ and ‘Clinical Psychology Input in a Major Trauma Centre’. These written reports are available on request.
