Dr Kate Cruise and Dr John Forbes

We are very happy to announce that Dr Kate Cruise is the winner of the 2016 Delta Psychology Prize.

This prize is awarded to the first year student in one of the Clinical Psychology courses (MPsych, MPsych/PhD) who exhibits the best practical clinical skills in their practicum at the Edith Cowan University (ECU) Psychological Services Centre.

In addition to extensive teaching, research, and work experience, Kate already holds a BA (Hons) Psychology and a PhD (Psychology) from the University of Tasmania, and is currently in her final semester of a Master of Clinical Psychology at ECU. She has found this to be a challenging and rewarding experience, and has been pushed outside of her comfort zone by both the coursework and the practical components of the course which helped her to develop both professionally and personally. Kate cannot speak highly enough of her experiences with the ECU Psychological Services Centre and the supervision that she has received. This experience has provided her with a strong foundation to develop as a Psychologist. Kate’s aim following graduation is to grab hold of an employment opportunity that will allow her to start the Clinical Psychology Registrar program. She looks forward to then seeing what the future holds.
