Our Clinical Psychologists provide support throughout the organisation. We currently have two Senior Psychologists (Joanne Behan and Mark Stanton) and Basic Grade Psychologist (Alison Bonham) working with the Clare Early Intervention Services (CEIS). CEIS is a team comprising professionals from the HSE, Enable Ireland and the Brothers of Charity Clare working together in partnership to provide support to families of children between the ages of 0 and 6 who may have developmental delay. Our psychologists carry out assessment, diagnostic and intervention work within the team including developmental assessments, Assessment of Need, ASD diagnosis, behavioural interventions, family training and so on.
We have one Principal Clinical Psychologist working within the Adult services. Michael Reen provides supports to Staff teams throughout the services and advises on a broad range of issues including behaviour difficulties, bereavement, abuse, person centred planning, individualisation of services to mention a few. He is also involved training of staff and families on a regular basis.
The Psychology Department also has Trainee Clinical Psychologists on placement at regular intervals from the NUIG or UL Doctoral Programmes in Clinical psychology.
