Jessica Dewey

Following her degree in Psychology at the University of Birmingham, Jessica completed a three-year preparatory programme for Masters training at Southampton University. This involved a PGCE, two years teaching in Portsmouth and action research connected to the MSc in Educational Psychology. Jessica then finished her professional training on the MSc at UCL in 2000. After a year's professional practice Jessica then undertook her Doctorate in Educational Psychology (Ded Psy) and completed this in 2006.

Jessica’s current research interests include: the teaching of children’s thinking skills, the effectiveness of Nurture Groups and the development of supervision within the profession. Jessica has presented at national and international conferences on research into Activating Children’s Thinking Skills (ACTS). This research incorporates working in collaboration with Professor Carol McGuinness at Queen’s University, Belfast and parallels a sister project being conducted in Northern Ireland. The work aims to ascertain the impact of ACTS at a student, staff and school level in the tuition of thinking skills.
