I am a qualified, registered social worker and social work lecturer with interests in practice education and mental health. I qualified as a Psychiatric Social Worker and worked in Cheshire and Shropshire before becoming a lecturer. I jointly co-ordinate the Master’s Award in Social Work, coordinate first and final placement modules on MA and BA social work awards, and teach theories and methods of social work. I am a member of the Learning and Teaching sub-committee of Joint Universities Council’s Social Work Education Committee. With Graeme Simpson I have published research in practice education and adult social care policy.
