Having gained a Certificate of Education from Lady Mabel College, Barnsley, Beverley’s teaching career was extensive, covering all phases. It began with the Inner London Education Authority, subsequently including Camden, Westminster and Hackney. Her final teaching post was within Intermediate Treatment, which provided young people with an alternative programme to a custodial sentence. In this post she was able to develop and explore the use of behavioural management techniques and their psychological impact upon young people. Beverley trained as an educational psychologist at the Institute of Education in London. Over the past 30 years she has worked in clinical and educational settings in the London boroughs of Brent, Redbridge and Hackney and has undertaken further study in educational management.
Beverley joined the team at UCL in September 1995. Current research interests include emotional intelligence and how associated intervention s might be effectively employed to reduce the rate of exclusion in educational settings, cognition and learning in traumatised children.
