Abstract / Description

This professional doctorate is made up of a systematic review, a research project, consultancy report, professional skills report, teaching and training plan, teaching and training evaluation, teaching and training recording, and an intervention report , as detailed in the course handbook for the Professional Doctorate in Health Psychology (edition 2015/2016) completed over a period of four and a half years. As I continue to develop into a dynamic and evidence-based clinician, teacher and researcher, I appreciate the opportunities I have had on the professional doctorate, to work with a range of clients in different contexts. These have enabled me to evolve into a professional and ethical health psychologist, applying appropriate theories in practice, challenging my assumptions and increasing my self-efficacy as a reflexive scientist-practitioner. I have strived to gain work experience in a variety of settings and over the 4.5-year period have worked within the NHS, the charity sector, in industry, as a member of a public health committee and in my role as a teacher and trainer. This diversity has contributed to my progress, and taught me the practical challenges of funding, sustainability and applying health psychology in a political climate.
