Project Description

I would like to recruit a PhD student with an interest in working on issues relating to clinical psychology and Intellectual disability. I have an interest in adapting therapeutic psychological approaches to work with this group. I would be particularly keen to extend my work with forensic populations in this area. Examples of the work I would like to develop are reflected in the references below.

This project would be suitable for experienced clinicians who are developing interventions in practice for people with intellectual disabilities and would like to evaluate their efficacy.

Funding Notes

Self-funded students may wish to apply.

There are a number of currently open competitive studentship schemes at the University of Birmingham, and students are welcome to discuss their eligibility for these with the supervisor or the PG Admissions Tutor.
