Dr Fergus Gracey
Practitioner Researcher / Clinical Psychologist
My research themes relate to assessment, recovery and rehabilitation following brain injury. I am especially interested in identity and emotional adjustment following acquired brain injury, self-regulation, cognitive rehabilitation and service delivery. Current research includes: final stages of analysing and writing up a randomised controlled trial of a novel intervention for executive functioning; exploring the use of SenseCam in supporting rehabilitation; creativity, identity and adjustment following stroke; coping, fatigue, self-esteem and emotional adjustment following brain injury; interoception and emotion-based decision making ability following brain injury; evaluation of CogMed working memory training package in rehabilitation of childhood brain injury; analysis of policies that guide practice in brain injury rehabilitation; presenting problems and service use of children with cognitive and emotional problems following acquired brain injury.
