Ms Carol-Ann Getty

I am a PhD student at King’s College London, researching the feasibility of using telephones to deliver behaviour change in addiction treatment. The primary aims of my PhD are to assess what interventions are feasible and acceptable to deliver by telephone, how to encourage professionals and individuals who might benefit from this treatment to engage with telephone delivered interventions (TDI), and how to integrate these into routine treatment practice.

I hold a BSc Hons Psychology degree and MSc in Applied Behaviour Analysis from Ulster University. I have experience of working and volunteering within residential drug and alcohol detox units, substance misuse treatment centres and homeless hostels. More recently, I worked at Johns Hopkins Baltimore, in a Behavioural Research unit implementing and evaluating contingency management behavioural interventions that aim to achieve and maintain abstinence in unemployed refractory drug users and reduce HIV-related risk behaviours in injection drug users.
