Linda Dubrow-Marshall

Psychologist and Programme Leader, University of Salford

I am a clinical and counseling psychologist (HCPC Registered) and a BACP Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist. I am a Senior Lecturer and Co-Programme Leader for MSc Psychology of Coercive Control and Applied Psychology (Therapies) programmes at the University of Salford. Previously, I designed and managed the new Counselling and Wellbeing Service at the University of Salford, and I taught for the MSc in Counselling (Professional Training). I am an integrative psychotherapist, and I incorporate hypnotherapy and EMDR into my practice. I also co-founded the Re-Entry Therapy, Information and Referral Network (RETIRN/UK) which offers advice and counselling to individuals and families affected by coercive relationships and groups. I have extensive clinical and counseling experience in a variety of settings, including universities, prisons, addiction agencies, psychiatric hospitals, veteran agencies, and private practice. I obtained my PhD in Counselling Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania, USA, and did my PhD dissertation on “Marital relationships of children of Holocaust survivors”.

Research Interests:
My current research interests include: Psychology of undue influence and coercive persuasion (e.g.intimate partner violence, cults and extremist groups), group dynamics and family systems, ethical psychotherapy, psychotherapy outcome, practitioner self-care, CBT and physical health, and single session psychotherapy. I gave a presentation on single session psychotherapy for the psychology seminar series. I am a peer reviewer for the Counselling and Psychotherapy Research Journal, published by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and Routledge.
