Research: Health & Social Care research

Eric is a senior lecturer and joined the team in 1995. He qualified as an occupational therapist in 1986 after studying at the College of Ripon and York St John.

Eric gained a fine art degree in 1980 and later became interested in occupational therapy. After qualifying he worked in psychiatry (acute and elderly) in Shropshire and then as a senior therapist in North Tyneside.

Eric has also worked in elderly rehabilitation in Newcastle where he completed an MSc Rehabilitation Management and contributed to a cardiac rehabilitation programme at the Royal Victoria Infirmary. He also taught part-time  on the A Level Psychology Course at Newcastle  College from 1990 -1992

His academic and research interests centre around the nature of science, and how it can be applied to health care, the use of creative activities with younger adults who are diagnosed with dementia (which is also my clinical role in 2006-07) and developments in cardiac rehabilitation.

Research interests

He is currently working on a PhD , the title of which is "The generation of counterfactual thinking for an Occupational Therapy intervention aimed at ameliorating the effects of chronic pain in an aging population with muscle/joint pain."
