Biography

Clare Allely is a Lecturer in Psychology at the University of Salford in Manchester, England, and is an affiliate member of the Gillberg Neuropsychiatry Centre at Gothenburg University, Sweden. Clare is also an Honorary Research Fellow in the College of Medical, Veterinary and Life Sciences affiliated to the institute of Health and Wellbeing at the University of Glasgow.

Clare holds a PhD in psychology from the University of Manchester and has previously graduated with an MA (hons.) in Psychology from the University of Glasgow, an MRes in Psychological Research Methods from the University of Strathclyde and an MSc degree in Forensic Psychology from Glasgow Caledonian University. Between June 2011 and June 2014, Clare worked at the University of Glasgow as a postdoctoral researcher.

Teaching

Topics: Forensic Psychology, The Psychology of Extreme Violence, Developmental Psychology and Neuroscience.

Research Interests

Current research projects and interests include the pathway to intended violence in mass shooters; early predictors of later childhood psychopathology; autism spectrum disorders in the criminal justice system and research into brain injury or neurodevelopmental disorders in forensic populations. I am currently working on a project with my colleague, Dr Toni Wood (Lecturer in Criminology), looking at autism spectrum disorders in the prison environment. I am also working on a number of papers exploring the pathway to intended violence in mass shooters with my colleague, Dr Lino Faccini, a N.Y.S. Licensed Psychologist.

Collaborations

Multidisciplinary Collaborative on Sexual Crime and Violence

I was invited to become a member of a team of serial murder experts who participate in the Multidisciplinary Collaborative on Sexual Crime and Violence. One product of the collaboration is the Serial Killer Database Project, a catalogue of serial murderers who fit the FBI definition.

 

Mellow Parenting Specialist Advisory Group

I am a member (with a remit for research) of the Mellow Parenting Specialist Advisory Group. Mellow Parenting is a family of programmes developed to support parents and their children in making good relationships. The foundation of all the programmes is attachment theory with particular emphasis on the transmission of attachment and relationship styles across generations. Mellow Parenting is a Scottish based charity but operates in a number of international countries including: Iceland, Russia, Ireland, New Zealand, Germany and Tajikistan.

For more information on Mellow Parenting please visit the website which can be found here: http://www.mellowparenting.org/

 

The Advocate’s Gateway

Professor Penny Cooper (Kingston Law School, Kingston University London) has invited me to collaborate with her as a ‘research expert’ for The Advocate's Gateway in order to raise awareness and understanding of autism spectrum disorders amongst legal practitioners (theadvocatesgateway.org). Psychology is playing a bigger part in court cases in terms of the judges’, lawyers’ and jurors’ understanding of the accused and witnesses.

I was part of a small team which developed this toolkit published in 2017: ‘Planning to question someone with an autism spectrum disorder including Asperger syndrome’ for The Advocate’s Gateway. http://www.theadvocatesgateway.org/images/toolkits/3-planning-to-question-someone-with-an-autism-spectrum-disorder-including-asperger-syndrome-2016.pdf
