She graduated from the University of Manchester with a BSc (Hons) in Psychology in 2007. She was awarded a PhD in Clinical Psychology from the University of Manchester in 2010, and a ClinPsyD (Clinical Psychology Doctorate) from the University of Birmingham in 2013.

Research interests

Judith’s research is focused upon understanding and supporting the development of wellbeing and resilience, and how this can be applied in healthcare settings to improve treatments and service delivery. Judith is particularly interested in investigating the role of wellbeing and resilience in supporting NHS staff performance. Some of her current work focuses upon wellbeing and burnout in nurses and GPs, and how this relates to the safety and quality of care they feel able to provide. She is also interested in the promotion of optimal functioning in health staff teams, the management of medical errors, and the prevention and management of psychological disorders.
