I am currently enrolled in the Clinical Pyshology PhD program at Flinders University. The overall aim of my PhD will be to assess the utility of combing cognitive processing therapy (CPT), a well established PTSD treatment, with behavioural activation, an effective treatment for depression. I will specifically examine if the addition of behavioural activation for depression into a standard CPT treatment protocol enhances treatment efficacy for those with comorbid PTSD and MDD. I currently volunteer with Interchange and a grief program named Star Bear.
