Dr Dora Black Interview - MWF Autumn Conference

Print Email
27 November 2015



 We were lucky enough to be joined by the wonderful Dr Dora Black at our Autumn conference this year Qualifying in medicine at the University of Birmingham she went on to train in psychiatry at the Institute of Psychiatry and Maudsley Hospital, London. Dr Dora Black specialised in child and adolescent psychiatry and worked in several child and adolescent psychiatric clinics and hospitals part-time whilst bringing up three children, before being appointed to a full-time post as consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist and head of department of child and adolescent psychiatry at the university hospital, the Royal Free Hospital in London. After retiring from the Royal Free Hospital, Dora founded the Traumatic Stress NHS Clinic, in central London for psychologically traumatized children and became its first director. Since retiring from NHS clinical practice in 1997 she went on to advise the courts of law in matters pertaining to children, acting as expert witness in cases which involve contested contact or residence, personal injury, or medical, educational and social service negligence concerning children and adolescents. Dr Dora has particular expertise in cases involving bereavement, post-traumatic stress disorder in children, and where children have witnessed or been affected by intra-familial violence, especially when one parent kills the other. Dora relinquished her licence to practice in November, 2014 and is now fully retired.

Watch the video below for a fascinating insight into her life and career.
