UWE delivers several programmes in Solution Focussed Therapy with this partner.

Besides his position as an Associate Professor at UWE, Dr Ward is also a visiting academic at Paris VIII university in France. In addition to teaching on the MSc in Clinical Psychology (which is one of the few such courses in the world taught at a distance), he is also a member of the Laboratoire de Psycholpathologie et Neuropsychologie.

Dr Ward is also on the committee of the British Neuropsychological Society, and maintains the society's webpages.

Area of expertise

Dr Ward has special interests in the practice of counselling psychology with neurological client groups, such as head injury, ME and MS. He is also interested in technology enhanced learning, especially online simulation using second life. In addition he has ongoing projects looking at the understanding and development of an integrative stance in trainee counselling psychologists. He is currently collaborating with Arnaud Plagnol at Universite Paris VIII, on the application of cognitive neuroscience to psychotherapy.  It is hoped that this will lead to various research projects, and a book.
