About the trainer

Dr Andrew Shepherd

Andrew is employed as a clinical lecturer in psychiatry at The University of Manchester.

His research and clinical interests focus on the lived experience of mental distress, particularly in relation to concepts of 'identity transition', for example during movements between prison, hospital and community settings.

His clinical practice is currently primarily in secure hospital and prison settings.

He employs a psychodynamic model of understanding in relation to concepts of diagnosis and formulation and has experience in the delivery of both individual and group therapies within forensic institutional settings.
