Research: ASPIRE - listening and learning

Season 2, Ep. 5
This week we learn what an ACE is from the NSFT research team, who tell us about their unique study that trains up care-givers to help children who have had adverse childhood experiences when they were young. We hear from Brioney Gee who is the lead on the ASPIRE study, research assistant psychologist Isabela and co-applicant Tina whose family have experienced ACEs. This podcast is the second of three podcasts (Season 1 Ep 13 is the first) which are going out over the duration of the ASPIRE project to give a sense of how the project is progressing and how co-production is a vital part of how this intervention is taking shape. ASPIRE is taking many experts by experience and work to create a very special project. As Tina says, "As part of the group I have been very much valued and listened to." ASPIRE is funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) is the nation's largest funder of health and care research.

Research: Becoming a clinical psychologist

Season 1, Ep. 17
In this episode, Claire from NSFT research speaks to three members of the research team - Sarah, Laura and Danielle, about the process of getting on tothree-year, full-time Doctorates in Clinical Psychologyand what working in research has taught them. Laura tells us about her TedX talk that she did on comparison which will lead you to see bananas and oranges in a whole new light. Danielle explains how it has taken her four years to get a place on the doctorate and how that has actually been time well spent that will help with her training. She explains that she has learnt the most from the people taking part in research - those "that are laying their experiences out for you to see...for you to improve things for people in the future". Sarah has found a framework for research where those most impacted by the research should be the ones taking the lead in all parts of the research process. Laura has designs on the perfect job for the future that involves research and clinical practice.Link to Laura's Ted talk: Laura Miles: Oranges versus bananas: The unforgiving mirror of comparison | TED TalkSign up to take part in research here: Find out how to get involved in research and all the studies NSFT has on offer. | Norfolk and Suffolk NHSMusicTitles: Light Thought var 1Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 LicenseTitle:Soft Glitch LogoLicense: Business License, Commercial, ASCAPPublisher: OV Soundtracks Composer: Oscar A.
