Join Opportunity Nottingham to explore psychological approaches and interventions that can support people facing Multiple Disadvantage.

To open the event, Nick Maguire, an Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Southampton will focus on the mental health issues implicated in homelessness. His current research considers complex trauma in this cohort, and also the impact of CBT as a treatment.

John Connolly, Lead Counsellor at Westminster Homeless Health will talk about his work in psychological intervention in non-clinical settings for those facing homelessness. David Murphy from Nottingham University, will provide an overview of a recent research project which considers the impact of one-to-one psychotherapeutic interventions on people facing multiple disadvantage.

There will also be a choice of two workshops to attend during the event, which you can chose from the below selection:

These workshops are being run by partner organisation the Practice Development Unit (PDU), part of Nottingham Community and Voluntary Service.
