The BPS East of England branch is holding an online careers event “So you want to work with Children?”

Four speakers who have psychology backgrounds and now work with children will each present a “Day in the life of” segment describing what a typical day looks like in their role (pre-Covid!). This will be followed by a panel discussion where you can ask the panel questions about their jobs.

Psychology careers involving children include teaching, Educational Psychology, family therapy/social work and Clinical Psychology, and our speakers will reflect this range of experience.

Dates: 
Thu, 10/09/2020 – 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Miriam has also trained as a Video Interaction Guidance (VIG) Supervisor and Practitioner, and draws on the VIG values and beliefs within her therapeutic practice when working with families and teaching staff to improve relationships with children.

Pamela Parker – Clinical Psychologist focusing on children Pamela qualified in clinical psychology in 2009 and since then has worked full time with children, young people and families in NHS and Local Authority settings. Until December 2019, Pamela held a consultant grade post leading a team of clinicians who work with children and young people who are looked after, and children with learning disabilities.

Frances Korany – Family Counsellor Frances studies Psychology in Budapest, Hungary, and has worked for the past 7 years at Cambridgeshire County Council with families with complex needs.
