Kali Barawi is currently completing her PhD in the field of Medicine. Her main interests are in the field of traumatic stress and is conducting the first Randomized Control Trial for Military veterans with treatment resistant Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) called Motion assisted Memory Desensitization and Reconsolidation (3MDR).
Kali works within the Traumatic Stress Research Group, Division of Psychological Medicine and Clinical Neurosciences, with the supervision and guidance of Professor Jonathan I Bisson and Dr Catrin Lewis.
On completion of her BSc and MSc, Kali worked at Cardiff University Brain Imaging Centre (CUBRC) with Prof David Linden and Dr Stephanie Linden, on Neurofeedback for Depression (which is a type of biofeedback that uses real-time displays of brain activity—most commonly electroencephalography<> (EEG), to teach self-regulation of brain function) and with patients with genetic changes called 'Copy Number Variants' (CNVs) which can cause neurological and psychiatric difficulties, such as autism, ADHD, anxiety disorder or schizophrenia.
Kali has extensive experience working in different hospital settings with varied patients groups, such as psychopathy, personality disorder, Autism, neurodegenerative and Traumatic Brain Imagery. She continues to pursue a career within clinical research and aims to further her understanding of evidence based practice within the field of Traumatic stress.
