Applied Psychology Research and Collaboration
At Salomons Centre for Applied Psychology, our research and knowledge exchange work is recognised on both a national, and international stage. Our activities address a broad range of key areas within applied psychology, psychological therapies, policy support and both service and organisational development, and we see our work as key aspect to enhancing the quality of our professional training, consultancy and knowledge transfer.
We are currently involved in research and knowledge exchange projects in a number of exciting areas. These include Adult Mental health, Child and Adolescent Healthcare and Mental Health, and Neuropsychology. You can find out more about our current research projects by reading our research clusters document.
You can also find out more about individual research projects and publications by browsing our staff profiles, or through our online research and theses environment, CReaTE.
Understanding Psychosis and Schizophrenia
Anne Cooke has recently co-edited the report, ‘Understanding Psychosis and Schizophrenia: Why people sometimes hear voices, believe things that others find strange, or appear out of touch with reality, and what can help’. It has been written by a group of eminent clinical psychologists drawn from eight universities and six NHS trusts, together with people who have themselves experienced psychosis. It provides an accessible overview of the current state of knowledge, and its conclusions have profound implications both for the way we understand ‘mental illness’ and for the future of mental health services.

We offer research training and supervision for trainees enrolled in the Doctorate in Clinical Psychology, for individual PhD students, and for students in the MSc programmes.
For our Clinical Psychology programme, we typically draw research supervisors from the programme staff and from staff in NHS trusts. We offer mentorship support for new supervisors who plan to supervise a DClinPsych thesis. We also offer research supervision workshops for NHS staff who are new to supervising research.
