Our areas Excellence in Practice are involved in training tomorrow’s psychologists. The Centre for Health Psychology and our teams in Clinical Psychology and Counselling include research active staff, many of whom are also actively practising in their fields.
These areas focus on translating their research into high quality teaching, practice and enterprise. Staff engage in consultancy and commissioned research as well as providing bespoke training opportunities that draw from a rigorous science evidence-base. Recent examples include our training days for nurses on motivating dietary change for people with type 2 diabetes and cultural competence training for health professionals.
