Clinical Psychology

Psychological therapies and interventions

Designing and evaluating interventions for those experiencing, or at risk of, mental health problems.

Translating psychological research into effective and scalable interventions to improve the mental health and wellbeing of the population is at the heart of all of the work that we do in the Section of Clinical and Health Psychology. Our staff include internationally-recognised experts in core psychological modalities, including cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), interpersonal psychotherapy (IPT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT).

We are involved in a large number of evaluations and randomised controlled trials exploring the effectiveness of psychological interventions for different conditions and in different settings. This includes partnering with collaborators in the NHS, in education and in the third sector. We are also interested in exploring and testing why and how psychological interventions may work, with a focus on using new technologies and analytic techniques to examine the underlying mechanisms of change.

We work closely with the Centre for Psychological Therapies.
