Tina Sideris's picture

Main profile

Tina Sideris is a clinical psychologist. She combines her clinical work with critical reflection drawing on interdisciplinary ideas. Sexual violence perpetrated against women during the war of destabilization in Mozambique, domestic violence in rural South Africa, and masculinity, were the subjects of her early research. More recently she has developed an interest in exploring the experience of illness, and its treatment.  Her interest in embodiment, vulnerability, and care, is stimulated by practice in a hospital setting where she works with people diagnosed with chronic, and life threatening diseases.
