Research Services

The Rivers Centre has close links with Edinburgh University, Napier University and Queen Margaret University, and our clinicians routinely supervise research projects at Diploma, Masters and Doctoral levels.

The Centre also collaborates with the corporate and government sectors, conducting a broad range of research projects, from large scale randomized controlled trials and national surveys, to smaller scale single case studies. Our research findings are disseminated through publication in leading international peer-reviewed journals, professional journals and newspapers.

Types of research carried out include:

  • Treatment outcome studies
  • Organisational development programmes
  • The evaluation of occupational health and welfare initiatives
  • Service audits
