Dr Erinn Hawkins completed a PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University of Western Ontario, in Canada in 2008. Following this, she worked as a practicing Clinical Psychologist in both community and hospital settings for a number of years. Her experience working in the field has deepened her interest in applying the science of child development and clinical psychology to the real concerns affecting clinicians and their clients on a day to day basis.  Over the past several years, Erinn’s research has centred on two main themes: (1) the role of caregiver cognition and behaviour in the development of secure infant attachment; and (2) the efficacy of attachment-based interventions in promoting resilience for young children at risk of future mental health problems. She has also been actively engaged in knowledge translation activities on the following topics: (1) brain development and early childhood, and (2) the impact of early adversity and the accumulation of adversity on child development.
