Clinical Research Assistant

How are you involved with Apart of Me?

I have done research and written the ‘Young People and a Critical Exploration of Grief’ paper in 2019. I am also currently working with a few others on an article on grief during COVID-19 times for the Frontiers in Psychiatry journal.

I have worked with radically different and innovative methods and models for collective learning and self-organisation, such as is the ‘Organisation Workshop’ by sociologist Clodomir Santos de Morais. My interests relate to grassroots self-organisation of disadvantaged communities and I am extremely passionate about the formation of ecosystems and individual and community psychotherapy as ways of addressing the struggles of marginalised communities, in addition to the transformative potential embodied in reclaiming the public space as political space.
