Taking clinical psychology beyond health and education
Taking psychology into the yet wider world has always been a focus of my work and my interests. My roles beyond health and education have included:
- Member of the British Board of Film Classification’s Advisory Board on Children’s Viewing.
- Member of the BBC magazines’ Youth Editorial Review Board.
- Member of the BBC magazines’ Annual Review Panel.
- Trustee and committee member, Holocaust Learning UK.*
Via the provision of bespoke films based on survivor interviews and testimony, Holocaust Learning UK exists to encourage secondary school students to learn about and understand the events of the Holocaust and hence to eschew discrimination, racism, xenophobia and intolerance, to build a better, safer future for all.
Within my role as Trustee, I bring my clinical psychology skills to ensure that the films made are appropriate and meaningful for the age and emotional development of our intended audiences.
