Global Scholar Catherine Glen Gives an Update
Thank you Catherine Glen, Club 2016/7 Global Scholar, for your address to the Club Monday 05 February updating the Club on your work to date and plans for the future.
With thanks to the Club for accommodating her and making it all possible, she advised that she had enjoyed her studies for an MSc Psychology of Childhood Adversity in QUB and as her Thesis had been on refugees she had worked with Barnardo’s Refugee Services. She had a placement in a Nairobi Child Development Clinic training local practitioners and had assessed over 40 children. She is currently working at Queen’s University as a researcher from January – March writing the chapter 'Children in Peace from Research to Action' for a UNICEF book. She is also working for the Education Authority at Stranmillis on a mental health project and at Barnardos Refugee Services as a play leader. She presented President Rosemary with a banner from the Rotary Club of Karen, Kenya.
