Bio: I'm a Consultant Clinical Psychologist working in the UK. After 17 years in the NHS I left in 2011 and set up my own company. We have subsequently taken on the challenge of introducing tools to help identify the psychological needs of Looked After Children and track how they change over time (see http://www.BERRI.org.uk). We hope that regular use of outcome measurement can improve the quality of services and the life chances of complex children. I have written a book called 'Attachment in Common Sense and Doodles' published by JKP, which tries to make current scientific and therapeutic knowledge about attachment and chronic developmental trauma accessible for adoptive and foster parents, residential care staff, professionals and lay people. I train health, social care, legal and other professionals about attachment and the impact of abuse, trauma and poor early care. Over 1000 people have attended my two-day training for residential care staff, and I’ve trained hundreds of adoptive and foster parents to "manage behaviour with attachment in mind”, as well as training other professionals to deliver this content as a group program. I’ve also done a number of keynotes, workshops and plenaries at conferences. In my spare time, I run http://www.clinpsy.org.uk which is an internet site and forum for aspiring and practising clinical psychologists. We publish an e-magazine called Aspire periodically, for which I am editor. I have also done a lot of expert witness work for the family courts sat on various committees and been involved in lots of policy work. However, I am trying to reduce this element of my work to focus on doing more research, training and consultancy. I want to expand my time for writing (of academic papers, psychology-related books and a novel), and I am currently experimenting with blogging and social media as means to disseminate psychological thinking.
