Dr Camilla Sanger
Camilla completed her undergraduate degree in psychology and neuroscience at Sussex University. Camilla subsequently worked in a number of therapeutic roles in the social care field related to parenting and child protection. She went on to complete a diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and a fellowship with NIHR Collaboration for Leadership in Applied Health Research and Care (CLAHRC).
Camilla went on to complete training in clinical psychology at Oxford University and worked, as part of her thesis, on the ‘Healthy Start, Happy Start’ pilot study at Imperial College's Academic Unit of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, supervised by Paul Ramchandani and Jane Iles. The research project involved adapting a video-feedback intervention for infants showing signs of behavioural problems for use with both mothers and fathers. The approach subsequently received NIHR HTA funding for a full RCT evaluation and Camilla worked as the interim trial manager until Christine came into post.
Since qualifying, Camilla has gone on to work at the NSPCC; leading a portfolio of perinatal service development and research projects. She still maintains her links with the Centre for Mental Health as a Visiting Researcher.
