The Department of Psychology was founded in 1950 by Hans Eysenck. Following a merger in 2004 with Psychology in Guy’s, King’s, and St Thomas’ School of Medicine (GKT), the Department represents one of the world’s largest groupings of clinical and health psychologists (see staff list).
The Department has established a strong and multi-stranded international reputation for:
Its research in clinical, health, forensic and neuropsychology
Its pioneering development of cognitive behaviour therapy for the prevention and treatment of neurosis, psychosis, and physical illness; this includes cognitive remediation and family therapy
Its postgraduate training course in clinical psychology, now a Doctorate (which helped to establish the scientist/practitioner model that is now almost universal in the field) and its other postgraduate courses in health psychology, and cognitive behaviour therapy
An intercalated BSc for medical students in undergraduate psychology and neuroscience.
Members of the Department offer an expert psychology service to the South London & Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, King’s College Hospital, St Thomas’ Hospital and Guy’s Hospital. Staff also provide the psychology teaching for undergraduate medical students in the King’s College London School of Medicine.
The Department is based on two sites. At theInstitute of Psychiatry, it is mainly housed in theHenryWellcomeBuilding for Psychology (completed in 2000 and part funded by the Wellcome Trust). At Guy’s Hospital, it is based in Thomas Guy House. The Head of Department is Professor Elizabeth Kuipers. The Head of Health Psychology Section at Guy’s is Professor Rona Moss-Morris.
Graduate research students work closely with their supervisors and enjoy regular meetings to discuss their progress. They also liaise with other members of staff with relevant research interests and are encouraged to attend and participate in departmental research presentations and other Institute seminars. There is a full induction for new graduate students on commencing their studies. Each full-time graduate research student is allocated their own workspace and computer; facilities for part-time students can be arranged according to their needs.
Training courses run by the department, the Institute or through the Graduate School can be utilised as required to provide training in a wide variety of topics, from transferable skills to academic areas directly relevant to the student's thesis.
