Career Overview:

I am a research clinical psychologist with a PhD from the University of Cambridge (2002) and a doctorate in clinical psychology from University College London (2004). After completing my PhD and clinical training, I worked as a Senior Investigator Scientist in the Emotion Group at the Medical Research Council Cognition and Brain Sciences Unit in Cambridge until April 2012. During this time I cofounded the Cambridge Clinical Research Centre in Affective Disorders, which conducts translational research to better understand and treat anxiety and depression. I served as an Honorary Senior Lecturer at University College London, teaching and supervising research projects on the doctoral clinical psychology programme there. In May 2012 I joined the Mood Disorders Centre at Exeter University as an Associate Professor. In January 2018 I was promoted to Professor. From January 2015 to January 2020 my research was  supported by a National Institute of Health Research Career Development Fellowship. 

I am a chartered clinical psychologist, registered with the Health Professions Council. I completed my CAT practitioner training in 2007 in Oxford. I was a Beck Institute Scholar in 2013, receiving training and supervision at the Beck Cognitive Therapy Institute in Philadelphia, US. I was awarded diplomate membership of the Academy of Cognitive Therapy in 2013 and accreditation as a CBT therapist by the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) in 2015. I take an evidence-based but eclectic approach to therapy. In addition to developing ADepT and being trained in CBT and CAT, I also have experience of dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT) and mindfulness approaches (Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy for Depression; Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy for Life). At the Mood Disorders Centre, I have been the co-lead for the AccEPT clinic since 2015 (an NHS commissioned service innovating novel treatments for mood disorders that sits in the gap between IAPT and secondary care). I contribute to teaching on clinical psychology at undergraduate and postgraduate levels within Exeter and provide training workshops nationally and internationally on a range of different therapies and on workplace wellbeing.  I currently am a member of the University of Exeter wellbeing committee (overseeing staff and student wellbeing) and am mental health lead for NIHR Primary Care School at the University of Exeter. 

I am interested in considering applications from potential masters or PhD students wishing to work on clinically facing research projects. I am also interested in supporting early and mid career clinical academic psychologists who wish to remain both clinically and research active. I collaborate with and mentor a variety of early and mid career clincial-academic psychologists around the UK.

Research

Research interests

My research examines how to build wellbeing and reduce symptoms of distress in clinical and non-clinical populations, with a particular focus on developing and evaluating a range of novel treatments for clients who currently fall in the 'gap' between primary (IAPT) and secondary (CMHT) care in the UK NHS. My work has historically focused on depression but is now broadening to also include bipolar depression, complicated grief disorder, and personality difficulties/disorder. I also have an interest in ways to promote workplace wellbeing in university, NHS, and other public sector settings, including through the provison of mental health support (predominantly mindfulness), leadership training, and reform in working practices.

Current areas of focus include.

1. Understanding what mechanisms underpin the capacity to experience positive emotions and wellbeing using a variety of basic science methods

2. Using understanding from 1. to develop and evaluate Augmented Depression Therapy (ADepT) as a novel wellbeing focused-treatment for depression. The current emphasis is on ADepT for use in high intensity IAPT settings, for those with complex depression (complex trauma histories and/or personality difficulties), and for young adults experiencing severe depression.  

3. Examining to what extent IAPT high intensity care can be adapted to effectively treat depression in those with comorbid personality difficulties

4. Evaluating novel variants of Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), including for those who are still depressed following CBT and to enhance wellbeing and resilience in workplace settings.  

I use a range of methodologies, ranging from basic science approaches to evaluate candidate mechanisms, secondary analyses of existing data sets, and case series and trials methodologies to evaluate novel therapies.  To ensure novel interventions re fit for the NHS context, I am using principles from implementation science to co-design my interventions alongside service-users and clinicians.

 

Research projects

 

Core Work Streams

Developing Augmented Depression Therapy (ADepT)

Funded by an NIHR Career Development Fellowship between 2014 and 2019, I developed ADepT as wellbeing focused treatment for depression (see the ADepT Project Page).. We have published a case series showing this is a promising approach (Dunn et al., 2019) and are currently finalising write up of a pilot trial comparing ADepT to CBT (Dunn et al., in prep). We have developed a training pathway for ADepT (Dunn et al., in prep) and are now seeking funding for a definitive trial to compare it to CBT in a high intensity IAPT settings.

Adapting ADepT for complex depression

Funded by a PhD scholarship to Batool AlSayedNasser and a NIHR research development award from the three schools mental health programme to Richard Pione, we are adapting ADepT for those with complex depression (complex trauma history and/or personality difficulties alongside depression) and evaluating this in a two centre case series

Adapting ADepT for young adults

Funded by an ESRC PhD scholarship to James Carson, we are adapting ADepT for young adults with emerging severe depression and evaluating this in a two wave case series.

Evaluating CPD for the primary care workforce to better support clients with personality difficulties/disorder

Funded by a pre doctoral fellowship from the three schools mental health programme to Laura Warbrick, we are evaluating if short training for GPs and IAPT staff can enhance their ability to support clients with features of personality difficulties/disorder.

 

Collaborative Work Streams

Led by Kim Wright (funded by an NIHR advanced fellowship), a novel integration of BA and DBT for the treatment of rapid cycling bipolar disorder is being developed and evaluated

Led by Abi Russell (funded by an NIHR advanced fellowship), a novel schools based training to support children with ADHD (‘Tools for Schools’) is being developed and evaluated

Led by Victoria Pile (funded by an NIHR advanced fellowship), a novel imagery based intervention for adolescent depression is being developed and evaluated

Led by Peter Taylor (funded by an NIHR RfPB), cognitive analytic therapy (CAT) is being provisionally evaluated as a treatment for self-harm in a pilot trial.

Led by Thorsten Barnhofer (funded by an NIHR RfPB), mindfulness based cognitive therapy (MBCT) as a treatment for acute depression in those who have not responded to individual CBT in an IAPT context is being evaluated in a definitive trial.

 

Emerging work streams

In collaboration with TALKWORKS IAPT service in Devon and Kathy Shear from Columbia University we are developing and auditing a care pathway for adults with complicated grief in an IAPT setting (currently no research funding).

In collaboration with Devon and Cornwall NHS wellbeing hubs, we are developing and evaluating a mindfulness offering for NHS and public sector staff to enhance wellbeing and resilience in the workplace.

 

Core Infrastructure

Much of this work is hosted by or indirectly supported by the AccEPT clinic, a NHS commissioned therapy service for Mood Disorders at the University of Exeter that delivers care for clients in the gap between IAPT and secondary care. We work closely with a variety of partners, including TALKSWORKS IAPT service in Devon and the University of Exeter student wellbeing service. AccEPT provides an ideal infrastructure to develop, evaluate and then train workforces to implement novel therapies where no  no suitable evidence-based treatment currently exists. AccEPT has been funded for the past fourteen years. I have co-directed AccEPT alongside Kim Wright since 2014.
