Joanne Williams




I am a developmental psychologist with research interests in child and adolescent health and mental health, the development of health concepts, and developmental disabilities. I completed a BA(Hons) in Psychology followed by a PhD in Developmental Psychology at the University of Strathclyde.

My career in the University of Edinburgh commenced in 1993 with a research fellowship to examine psychological factors associated with child and adolescent injuries. This post was based jointly in Psychology and a The Research Unit in Health and Behavioural Change, Public Health Sciences.

In 1996, I took a two-year lectureship in Psychology, and from 1998 to 2012 I was lecturer in psychology, then senior lecturer in psychology, in Moray House School of Education.

In 2012, I started my current post in Clinical Psychology to contribute to child and adolescent psychology teaching and research. I coordinate the Edinburgh Child and Adolescent Research Network (ECAP), which brings together child psychologists based in Clinical Psychology, Psychology and Moray House School of Education.
