Guest Speaker: Applied Psychology Graduate Lynette Bradshaw
Lynette Bradshaw who graduated in 2012 from the BSc Applied Psychology recently came back to talk to students about her career path.
Lynette is currently the co-founder and executive director of Accompaniment Support Services for Children (A.S.S.C.) which was set up in 2020 to address the needs of young people as they negotiate their way through the criminal justice system.
Lynette gave a very insightful talk on the role of A.S.S.C and the need for such a service in the Irish justice system. She spoke passionately about the need for the development of “child – friendly justice” which A.S.S.C is working towards by providing key services for child victims of crime.
Lynette gave students a fascinating insight into her experiences at IADT as a mature student. She provided some invaluable advice for students regarding volunteering and how it can enhance their career opportunities.
It was a wonderful opportunity for current students to see the impact of the work that graduates like Lynette are doing.
