Personal profile

Research Focus

Dr Emily McGlinchey is currently working as a Senior Research Fellow at the Stress Trauma and Related Conditions (STARC) Research Centre, based in the Psychology Department of Queen’s University (QUB). Emily is also a BPS accredited Low-Intensity CBT (LI-CBT) therapist with over 3 years of clinical experience working across a range of both statutory and non-statutory mental health services. Emily has a research interest in the area of applied mental health, particularly in the areas of trauma, internalising disorders (such as anxiety or depression) and emotional dysregulation. At present Emily is currently involved in a number of high profile mental health research projects based in QUB such as the MI-VIDA Project, the UK Veteran Family Study, the COVID-19 Psychological Wellbeing Study and Mood Movement.

Emily completed an MSc in Applied Psychology and Psychological Therapies at Ulster University in 2015 and was awarded her PhD on the 9th of October 2019. This thesis was titled, ‘The role of emotional regulation in anxiety and depression symptom interplay and expression among school-aged females in Northern Ireland’. This project sought to use sophisticated statistical models to explore how symptoms of anxiety and depression are expressed among adolescents within the general population and unpack the complex mechanisms that underlie the frequent co-occurrence of these two phenomena, namely emotional dysregulation. Variable-centred, person-centered, and symptom-based statistical approaches were applied to data gathered by Emily as part of the project.

Emily has presented her work at several national and international conferences (as well as public impact events) and was awarded the Irish Association of Suicidology Award in October 2015 in relation to her work on adolescent self-harm. She has also published work in the area of mental ill-health, particularly internalising disorders such as PTSD, trauma, depression, and anxiety across both adult and adolescent populations.

In relation to teaching, Emily has been awarded the Associate Fellowship of the HEA. She also has completed B.P.S accredited Case Management Supervision Training in order to supervise trainee LI-CBT students on placement. Emily has experience teaching across several applied mental health undergraduate and postgraduate psychology modules.
