The second ResFest was held at the University of Lincoln on Friday 7th July 2017 and it was a huge success! With inspiring talks, great posters from all, and excellent opportunities for networking, we received very positive feedback from all who attended. The event welcomed local clinicians, practitioners and researchers, as well as ex, current and the new cohort of Trent Trainees to showcase the great research conducted on the Trent DClinPsy programme. It was lovely to see Trent DClinPsy alumni come along to show their support and hear about their life after training. Our current trainees presented some very high quality research and an engaging style which was a fantastic representation of what our current trainees are capable of. We also received great feedback from some of our new 2017 cohort who are due to start with us in September. We look forward to welcoming you onto the programme and we hope that we have inspired you to think about what research you can undertake during training.
In collaboration with the Forensic and Clinical Research Group (FCRG), the event also celebrated research completed by FCRG members (alongside an undergraduate student). The talks were relevant to clinical practice with useful implications for practitioners to take forwards. For more information on the FCRG please see the following link:
ResFest 2017 also welcomed Prof. Martin Tovee, soon to be our new Head of the School of Psychology at the University of Lincoln, to share his extensive research concerned with the perception of body image. The talk was very well received and his work on body image perception and disordered eating provided some useful insight for those clinicians who work with clients with eating disorders and issues with body-image.
During the networking lunch, delegates were invited to browse a number of research posters presented by DClinPsy and FCRG members. A vote later took place and prizes will be awarded for the talk and poster that received the most votes.
Congratulations to Ruth Charig for her talk on Net Neutrality and oSEM which won the most votes.
Further congratulations are due to Dr Michael Baliousis for the most voted for poster, which was on Interventions for stress during stem-cell transplantation
We owe a huge thank you Dr David Dawson for organising the event, all the DClinPsy team who helped him and our speakers for making the event such a success. THANK YOU!
