Emily Whitaker

BSc, MSc


Research Assistant

I am a Research Assistant in the TOPIC group, working on the Co-CAT study. Co-CAT (Child Anxiety Treatment in the context of COVID-19) compares an online, parent-led intervention (OSI) with treatment as usual in CAMHS services. We are exploring the effectiveness of OSI as an anxiety treatment for children aged 5-12 years old.

Before joining the University of Oxford, I completed my BSc in Psychology followed by my MSc in Development, Disorders and Clinical Practice. Previously I have worked as a Research Assistant investigating literacy skills in children with Developmental Language Disorder, and also as a Mental Health Support Worker in a CAMHS psychiatric intensive care unit.
