On Friday 7th July, the Trent DClinPsy Programme team (Universities of Lincoln and Nottingham), along with the FCRG, hosted the second Research Festival (ResFEST 2017) at the University of Lincoln. The event showcased and celebrated the research conducted by current and ex-trainees of the Trent DClinPsy Programme.
Also, FCRG members Dr Adrian Parke and Ross Bartels (along with a finishing undergraduate student) presented the results from one of their recent studies, both which have useful implications for clinicians. The conference also included a keynote address by Prof. Martin Tovee (from the School of Psychology) on the perception of body image in disordered eating.
Delegates were also able to attend a free networking lunch, where clinicians, practitioners, and researchers discussed research ideas and involvement with applied academics/clinicians based on the Trent programme and at the University of Lincoln. During the lunch, a selection of research posters were presented by DClinPsy and FCRG members.
Overall, the event was well-attended with a buzzing atmosphere and excellent talks from all.
