Biographical details

Dr Helen Paterson is a Senior Lecturer in Forensic Psychology at the University of Sydney. She was awarded her Bachelor of Arts from the University of British Columbia in Canada and her PhD from the University of New South Wales in Australia. Her primary research interest focuses on the effects of traumatic events on memory and psychological well-being. She regularly works with industry partners and has demonstrated an exceptional ability to liaise with partner organisations to conduct high-quality applied research. For example, she has worked with the NSW Police Force on two projects; one investigating the selection requirements of police officers, and another investigating best-practice techniques for memory retrieval. She has also worked with NSW Fire and Rescue on two projects; one investigating ways to train firefighters to make effective decisions under stressful conditions and the other investigating PTSD, resilience, and post-incident debriefing.

Research interests

Helen Paterson is an expert in the application of social and cognitive psychology to legal settings. In particular, she investigates ways in which psychological research and theory can help witnesses and victims of crime. Her research predominantly focuses on best practice techniques to collect accurate and complete accounts from eyewitnesses, while preserving their psychological wellbeing. She is also interested in studying lies and the detection of deception.
