Sandy Rea

Employing a qualitative case study approach, Sandy's PhD project investigates the journeys to recovery of high-profile persons who have suffered mental ill-health after the exposure of egregious acts (e.g., a faux pas, adultery, fraud) via mass and social media. Understanding the determinants that high-profile persons utilise to achieve recovery might provide insight into the recovery journeys of various populations and inform clinical practice and theory. Sandy is a practising psychologist and fellow of the College of Educational and Developmental Psychologists. She holds Masters degrees in Educational Psychology and Forensic Psychology. She contributes frequently to the media (television, radio, print).
