Claire Melia

Claire MeliaI completed my BSc in Psychology and Criminology at Keele University, followed by an MSc in Psychology of Health and Wellbeing. Currently, I am completing my PhD at Keele University, studying discursive constructions of alcohol use. In later stages of my project, I plan to observe and analyse the communication practices between alcohol practitioners and their clients in order to produce training workshops for practitioners on effective communication techniques.
