Shaun Liverpool - ESR 13, Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families
I am a product of the complex and multifarious environment that is Trinidad and Tobago. I followed my dream by pursuing tertiary education locally, regionally and internationally. Computers were my primary focus while growing up and now psychology is my passion. Most of all, I love life and every opportunity it presents me. In my spare time I enjoy volleyball, swimming and running along with other relaxing hobbies such as reading, meditating and staring at the stars.
Like my career choice, I am unique and eclectic in many ways, from my research interests to my life experiences. My current research addresses policy calls to promote shared decision making in services for young people with long term mental health conditions. It builds on prior research by the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families to develop a mobile app supporting shared decision making with young people, caregivers and therapists. This project will develop and evaluate a new app that enables greater involvement of caregivers in their child’s therapy. Along with my very supportive supervisors, I intend to make excellence my trademark. When I enjoy something it shows, so I know I will shine from the inside out. I always confront my fears, embrace my weaknesses and live my passion, one day at a time.
