Research activity is one indication that a psychologist is current/up-to-date in areas of their practice, and also that they can think both creatively and methodologically about a psychological issue.

Mark's research interests have been centred around methods of service delivery, the views of service users and also working with vulnerable individuals in community settings. His work has been featured nationally in the media (e.g., here). He also has an interest in fine art and has completed research into the link between creativity and mental health - many famous artists have been reported to have experienced mental health difficulties. More latterly his writing has focused on ‘low intensity CBT’ and he is the lead author on one of the main text books on this topic. Please contact Mark to request copies of these and other articles that he has written. His ResearchGate profile is here.
