Lorna Hogg is the Deputy Director (Clinical and Professional) of the Oxford Institute of Clinical Psychology Training.
She qualified as a clinical psychologist in 1985 at Glasgow University. She has worked in the NHS since then, with adults of working age. Lorna has a special clinical and research interest in adults with severe and persistent psychological difficulties, particularly those associated with psychosis.
Lorna has worked in NHS services in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, Oxford Health and most recently Oxleas Mental Healthcare Trust in Kent where she developed and led Early Intervention Services for young people developing psychosis as well as leading psychological treatment services for one sector of the Trust. Lorna has a long standing interest in teaching and training health care staff across a range of disciplines, both those in training and qualified staff.
Lorna’s main research interest is in social identity processes in psychosis, i.e. understanding what it means for a young person, particularly within a social context, to develop unusual perceptual experiences and/or beliefs that others find hard to understand, and how this impacts relationships, readiness to seek help and ultimately self-esteem and wellbeing.
