(Research & Teaching)
I teach in academic, clinical and creative spaces. In the last few months I have delivered online and in-person teaching to diverse professional audiences (e.g. psychologists, psychotherapists, social workers and youth workers) of 600+ to audiences in Berlin, UK and Pakistan. Some topics include language and liberation psychology, queer affirmative therapy, and deconstructing whiteness in clinical psychology.
I am a visiting lecturer at a range of universities. Currently, I am working at University of Hertfordshire to build anti-racism and social-justice informed practice as a core competency for training clinical psychologists at a doctoral level. The idea for this work was birthed from my research in deconstructing whiteness in psychology, and has involved developing an assessment criteria, curation of teaching modules, budget management and curating reflective affinity spaces. I am leading on the implementation of this under the supervision of Dr Taiwo Afuape.
