Mr Henry Egbums

...I am a third year PhD researcher in Psychology. My PhD thesis focuses on the adaptation of Picture-Based Value Survey Instrument for Children (PBVS-C) for use in the assessment of children’s value content, value structure and priorities in Nigeria. It will also investigates teacher's role in the transmission of values in primary schools in Nigeria. This project is first of its kind in Africa and it links naturally with my academic and work experience.  

...I have previously completed an undergraduate degree in psychology, counselling and therapies and a master’s degree in research in clinical psychology and a diploma in mental health nursing. 

...I have worked in the health sector for over 10 years with service users such as children, adolescents and adults with various needs such as mental health difficulty, severe and profound learning disability, bipolar disorder, anxiety and depression, psychosis, social and emotional difficulties, autism spectrum condition, communication difficulties and dementia in various settings such as general hospitals, mental health units, care homes and special needs school.

...As someone who has worked with children and young people with complex emotional and psychological challenges, and as someone who has dyslexia, I strongly believe that young people and adults have the capacity to achieve their innate potential through inspiration, personal discover, development, and the deployment of their talents to serve. 

...I published my first book in early childhood development in 2017. My long-term goal, amongst other interests, is to lecture and conduct research in the field of psychology.
