We’d like to give Aislinn Herlihy – an MSc student on the Forensic Psychology course at the University of Lincoln – a big congratulations for being awarded the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers (ATSA) Pre-Doctoral Research Grant.

Along with her supervisors Dr. Hannah MerdianDr. David Dawson, and Dr. Alex Schmidt, Aislinn is conducting a study that examines the validity and reliability of the Implicit Relational Assessment Procedure (IRAP; Barnes-Holmes et al., 2006) and the Explicit and Implicit Sexual Interests Profile (EISIP; Banse et al., 2010). The successful grant will be used to facilitate the collection of data for this study.

Again, well done Aislinn! We wish you all the best with your research and look forward to hearing about the results!
