New psychologist at private hospital
Brisbane Waters Private Hospital has welcomed a new psychologist to its ranks.
Dr Joe Tighe began working with the hospital in late April looking after inpatients and outpatients in private practice.
Dr Tighe has international experience in the private, public and voluntary sectors.
He specialises in innovation, psychological interventions, group work, suicide prevention, men's health, community development, youth work, training and resource production.
He graduated in psychology in the UK in 2006 and is now enrolled in a PhD course at the University of New South Wales Black Dog Institute.
Dr Tighe worked on the world first trial of an app for suicide prevention, the Black Dog Institute's ibobbly app, and was awarded a PhD scholarship to research the effectiveness of this mobile technology.
He has also co-founded the multiple award winning Alive and Kicking Goals! suicide prevention project in 2008, during which time he led the project to the Australian Medical Association's leading primary healthcare award in Western Australia in 2014.
He works with clients and takes a strengths-based and values-led approach to wellbeing and recovery.
