Anxiety and Trauma (OxCADAT)
I am interested in the primary prevention of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and depression in emergency service workers.
My research focuses on cognitive mechanisms to reduce PTSD risk factors and increase resilience through internet-based training.
The findings may be used to improve online resilience programmes with the goal of maintaining the mental health of those regularly exposed to traumatic events.
Preventing PTSD, depression and associated health problems in student paramedics: protocol for PREVENT-PTSD, a randomised controlled trial of supported online cognitive training for resilience versus alternative online training and standard practice.
