Trainees on the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology programme presented their research projects at a conference held in the University’s Foresight Centre.
The Doctorate in Clinical Psychology Annual Research Conference provides the opportunity for trainees to present their research to fellow trainees, staff, supervisors, stakeholders and service users and carers.
Consultant clinical psychologist, Dr Pam Skinner, delivered the keynote address at the Conference. In her talk she emphasised the skills the current third years had obtained not only as clinicians and researchers but also as project managers and future service leaders. Dr Skinner also emphasised the importance of research skills in terms of influencing and commissioning services within the NHS.
Research projects covered a wide range of areas including health related behaviours, clinical psychology in forensic settings, mood disorders & well-being and clinical psychology in children and adolescents.
The Liverpool clinical psychology programme was one of the first to be founded in the UK. It is delivered in partnership with the NHS and practicing clinical psychologists in the North West region.
Programme Research Director, Dr Joanne Dickson, said: “This annual conference gives final year trainees the opportunity to present their research – which relate to real-life issues across a wide- range of clinical psychology areas – to a wider audience. The Clinical psychology programme at Liverpool equips PGR trainees with the theoretical and practical skills, and the experiences which are needed to practice as a clinical psychologist in the NHS. “
The conference was organised by Dr Peter Taylor, Tom Green and Amanda Harrison of the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology course team in the Institute of Psychology, Health and Society.
