Vivienne is Senior Lecturer at Glyndŵr University, where she is programme leader of the FdA/BA in Therapeutic Child Care. She is a qualified social worker with an MA in Therapeutic Child Care (Reading University).
Vivienne was previously employed as a qualified social worker for almost thirty years and as such has extensive experience of working with children and families. Before joining Glyndŵr University she was a senior manager within the private care sector where she had lead responsibility for both training and therapeutic services.
For a number of years she worked within a Local Authority Children and Families social work team. As a social worker she has managed a local authority family centre and children’s residential homes. Her practice experience therefore has covered both the investigation of child abuse and therapeutic work with children and adults with a history of trauma.
