Terry Hanley is part of the counselling psychology team situated within the Manchester Institute of Education (MIE). The counselling psychology team's research focuses upon the broad area of 'Education and Therapy' (EaT), with the research of staff and students being divided into three broad strands of work:
- Therapy in educational settings (including school-based counselling, counselling in further and higher education and the development of innovative ways of working such as online or blended counselling services for young people).
- Applied psychologist education (including projects exploring the concepts of the 'scientist-practitioner' 'reflexive-practitice' and 'pluralistic practice' in therapeutic work).
- Psychology, inequality and education (including the exploration of the social justice work that psychologists engage in and consideration of the impact of austerity measures upon the wellbeing services within school settings).
This fits within the Research Group 'Education and Psychology' (E&P) in MIE.
