Emma Cernis

MA(Oxon), MSc, DClinPsych

Wellcome Trust Clinical Doctoral Fellow & Research Clinical Psychologist

I completed my clinical doctorate at the Oxford Institute of Clinical Psychology Training, where my dissertation explored the clinical understanding and measurement of dissociation.

Following on from this, I have now begun a Wellcome Trust Clinical Doctoral Fellowship during which I will undertake a 3-year program of research to develop the psychological understanding and treatment of dissociative experiences in psychosis.

Additionally, I also work as a Research Clinical Psychologist on the Feeling Safe Study, a clinical trial investigating a novel psychological intervention for persecutory delusions.

I have a long-standing interest in working with people with psychosis, having previously worked in the O-CAP team as a Research Assistant on the Worry Intervention Trial.  I also have an interest in the clinical and theoretical overlap between psychosis, trauma, and dissociation.

I am an HCPC registered clinical psychologist.
