Najwan Saaed Al-Roubaiy

I came to Sweden as a fifteen year old boy with my parents and brother in 1993 as refugees from Iraq. After becoming a Swedish citizen I moved to England and did a BSc (Hons) in Psychology at the University of East London, an MSc in Counselling Psychology at the London Metropolitan University, and then moved back to Sweden and further trained towards becoming a licensed psychologist - which I did in December 2007. Since then, I have worked in Sweden in several different clinical settings with both adults and children: Social services, the Malmo City Resource team, the Psychiatry department at Skåne University Hospital, and the Swedish Red Cross. In 2009 I enrolled as a part-time PhD student at the University of Leicester and earned my PhD in January 2014. While working on my PhD, I continued to work full-time as a licensed psychologist in Sweden and further trained as a specialist in Clinical Psychology - earning my Specialist Qualification in Clinical Psychology on the 30th of June 2015.
