Biography

Caroline Heary graduated with a BA from the University College Dublin (UCD), after which she completed a Masters of Psychological Science in Health Psychology in NUI, Galway. She subsequently returned to UCD, where she completed her PhD on the development of an instrument to assess children's satisfaction with hospital services (under the supervision of Dr. Eilis Hennessy & Prof. Hannah McGee). Having worked as a researcher in the Children's Research Centre, Trinity College Dublin, she then obtained a post-doctoral research fellowship from the National Children's Office. She was appointed to her post in NUI, Galway in November 2003.
With regard to her professional activities, Caroline was a member of the Council of the Psychological Society of Ireland. In addition, she was secretary of the local organising committee of the European Health Psychology Conference, which was hosted by the Department of Psychology, National University of Ireland, Galway in August 2005, as well as a member of the Scientific Committee. She is currently a committee member of the Special Interest Group in Paediatric Psychology (PSI).

Research Interests

Caroline has specific interests in children’s and adolescents’ health and well-being and methodological issues relevant to conducting research with children and young people. Further details are below:
Child health psychology: Caroline has a particular interest in the health behaviours of children and adolescents and is involved in a number of projects on factors relating to food consumption, physical activity and the sedentary behaviours of school-aged children. She is a co-applicant on a HRB  ICE award on 'designing, evaluating and implementing a pilot complex intervention on childhood obesity' (2016-2019). This award is designed to support the interdisciplinary training of a team of postdoctoral researchers. Lead PI: Prof. Patricia Kearney (UCC). http://www.hrb.ie/research-strategy-funding/grants-and-fellowships/funding-awarded/funding-award/awa...

During her sabbatical period (2011), she spent a period of time as a visiting research associate of the Division of Epidemiology and Community Health, School of Public Health, University of Minnesota, where Prof. Dianne Neumark-Sztainer was her host (and the Project EAT team). Prior to moving to NUI, Galway, Caroline worked as the lead researcher on a national study of children with acquired brain injury based in TCD, which was commissioned by the National Rehabilitation Hospital. Further research interests in this area include: psychosocial issues relevant to childhood chronic illness and children’s experiences of GP consultations / hospital settings.

Caroline is currently engaged in a collaborative programme of research with Dr. Eilis Hennessy (Department of Psychology, University College Dublin) and Dr. Lorraine Swords (Children’s Research Centre, TCD) on children’s understanding of psychological difficulties in peers, understanding the acceptance of children with mental health difficulties (and the stigma that these children can experience) and understanding help-seeking for psychological issues during adolescence and young adulthood. This research team have been successful in receiving funding from the Irish Research Council for Humanities and Social Sciences and the Millennium Research Fund, National University of Ireland, Galway. More recently Caroline Heary & Eilis Hennessy received a Health Research Award from the Health Research Board to carry out research on the stigmatization of psychological difficulties in children: An exploration of self and public stigma. During her sabbatical period (2011), Caroline spent a period of time at the Illinois Institute of Psychology & the National Consortium of Stigma and Empowerment with Prof. Pat Corrigan.
