Dr Sharon Lambert is a Lecturer in Applied Psychology in UCC, and so much more. Dr Lambert joined us in the tortoise shack to explain what Trauma Informed Design is, the perceptions of drug users and how class influences them. We talk about the need for ethical and compassionate harm reduction services. Dr Lambert outlines both the financial and humane imperatives to treating addiction as a healthcare issue and not a criminal justice one. Blending her years of experience of working in disadvantaged communities with her work in psychology, Dr Lambert outlines the ways we can reshape our support services to the benefit of all, even the bean counters.
