Stephen Barton is Head of Training at the Newcastle CBT Centre and former director of the Newcastle CBT Diploma. He has doctorates in cognitive science (Glasgow) and clinical psychology (Leeds), and has lectured in clinical psychology at the Universities of Leeds and Newcastle. An experienced therapist, supervisor, trainer and researcher, for the past twenty years he has specialised in providing CBT to people with complex mood disorders. He is a staunch advocate of the need to integrate evidence, theory and practice in clinical interventions, CBT in particular. His work is devoted to developing therapies for problems that are not currently treatable, with a strong emphasis on personalized healthcare. His method of development is to “shuttle” between single case analysis in the clinic and basic studies of psychological processes in the lab or field. His other clinical interests include training models, interpersonal processes, personal and spiritual development. He is married with three sons and lives in the North East of England.
