Dr Judy Pickard on the completion of her PhD
Carol Keane on being selected to be part of a pre-conference workshop at the International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies (ISTSS) 33rd Annual Meeting. This highly competitive “Paper in a Day” workshop brings together outstanding early career researchers from around the world to promote “leadership capacity building” in the field. Carol and the other ECRs will work with other leading academics in her field to produce a brief paper or commentary for a peer-reviewed journal as part of the workshop. This is a fantastic opportunity for Carol and really highlights the importance and international significance of her doctoral research to the field. Carol will also be presenting results from her doctoral research at the conference. The OSTSS conference is being held in Chicago in November this year.
