Miss Alison Seymour 

I have undertaken research into the effects of group dynamics within PBL groups on the learning experience of the student. This was further developed into looking at how working in PBL groups develops team working skills for professional practice.

I am also co- researcher on an action research project currently working with occupational therapists in Swansea who are introducing a model of practice into their mental health service.

My PhD research will use a constructivist grounded theory methodology to investigate the nature and process of the therapeutic relationship between people with an eating disorder and their therapists. I am also undertaking a small scale evaluation into the role of occupational therapists in Tier 3 eating disorder services in Wales.
