Joshua is a clinical psychologist working in the Centre for Parent and Child Support (SLAM NHS), which is a specialist CAMHS service focusing on parenting. We develop, innovate and design parenting programmes and interventions for a range of different difficulties, which we then disseminate widely.
His research at King’s College London focuses on the development and research of new interventions for parents, with a focus on parents with mental health difficulties where the difficulties are having an impact on their children’s wellbeing. Joshua is particularly interested in the concept of parental reflective functioning and its impact on child developmental outcomes.
Joshua works closely with students and staff from the computer science department at King’s College London to develop digital interventions as a means of enhancing our ability to scale the programmes we deliver.
