The brief facts about Dr Shaun Dempsey

In 1986 I commenced three years of training to be a registered nurse through the only system available at the time which was via hospital-based education. I completed this training in 1989 and then worked and travelled internationally until I came back to Australia in 1994 and commenced my university studies in Perth, Western Australia the following year. I have an Honours degree in Psychology (University of Western Australia), a Masters degree in Clinical Psychology (Murdoch University, Perth, WA), and a PhD in Psychology (Murdoch University, Perth, WA). I am a member of the Australian Psychological Society and a Fellow of the APS College of Clinical Psychologists.
