Staff Profile

Kelly Blockley

Associate Research Fellow

Kath Maguire

My role within the University of Exeter Child Health Group is largely focused on the service design and process evaluation aspects of a large NIHR funded trial, led by the University of York – Enhancing Social-Emotional health and wellbeing in the Early years (E-SEE): A community-based randomised controlled trial (and economic) evaluation of the Incredible Years Infant and Toddler (0-2 years) parenting programmes.

I am also involved in PenCLAHRC projects in a variety of health services areas, including Effective mechanisms for social prescribing – a realist review of social prescribing initiatives (view the published protocol here), and Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy to prevent relapse in young people (MBCT-YP).
