Professor Robin Davidson has been a Consultant Clinical Psychologist for more years than he cares to remember. He worked in the Leeds Addiction Service before moving to Northern Ireland as Head of Clinical Psychology for the Northern Health Board. He has published widely in the field of alcohol dependence, motivation and health psychology and has editorial responsibilities for a number of addiction journals.
He left the NHS in early 2008 but continues as Hon. Lecturer in the University of Ulster and the Faculty of Medicine at Queens. He is joint Chairman of GAIN ( the Northern Ireland equivalent of NICE ) and has recently been appointed as Chairman of the Alcohol Education and Research Council
