A research professor who recently received a CBE has accepted an honorary contract with Broadmoor Hospital in recognition of his work with the specialist mental health hospital over the past 35 years.
Prof Gisli Gudjonsson, who received the CBE for services to clinical psychology, has a long association with the Berkshire hospital, having trained there in 1976.
He has since supported research at the hospital over many years, most recently working on new methods for assessing empathy and moral thinking.
He is currently working with Broadmoor colleagues on new projects that aim to benefit current patients as well as advancing the science of forensic clinical psychology.
Prof Derek Perkins, Head of Psychological Services at Broadmoor, said: “Prof Gudjonsson has made an outstanding contribution to forensic and clinical psychology and we’re very grateful that his expertise is benefiting patients at Broadmoor and beyond.”
The Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) is mainly awarded for public service or other distinctions. Other notable recipients of the CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2011 include actor Colin Firth and musician Bryan Ferry
