Personal profile


Jamie Murphy is a Professor in Psychology and a member of the Psychology Research Institute at Ulster University. He has investigated the expression of psychosis and the co-occurrence of psychological trauma and psychosis for the past 10 years. Challenging traditional disease based conceptualisations of psychosis, Jamie’s research has demonstrated that extreme perceptual, belief and behavioural abnormalities such as hallucinations, delusions and mania often emerge in, and can be understood against, a context of extreme life trauma and adversity. Funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 initiative and the UK Economic and Social Research Council, Jamie is published in some of the world’s leading psychiatry and psychology journals, and collaborates with some of the world’s leading authorities in the area. Core branches of his research include: the psychosis continuum; psychotraumatology; childhood sexual abuse and psychosis; social isolation and psychosis; trauma-cannabis interaction and psychosis; and suicidality-psychosis co-occurrence. Jamie is also the training coordinator for The Collaborative Network for Training and Excellence in Psychotraumatology (CONTEXT), an EU funded international, interdisciplinary doctoral training programme involving nine European partner organisations spanning the academic, non-governmental, voluntary, and public sectors.
