Dr Lindsay Dewa holds a BA in Psychology and Criminology and two MScs, one in Psychological Research Methods and one in Forensic Psychology. Lindsay’s PhD focused on insomnia in men and women prisoners in England. Studies included in her PhD examined the prevalence of poor sleep quality and insomnia disorder, associated factors and the management of insomnia in a prison population. She successfully produced a treatment pathway for insomnia in prison that satisfied prisoner-patients, prison and healthcare staff and academic sleep researcher’s perspectives, and is now testing this in one high secure prison.
