Conor Mc Guckin graduated from the University of Ulster with a B.Sc. (Hons.: First Class) in Psychology and Organizational Science, and from the Open University with a B.Sc. (Open) degree. He gained his Ph.D. in Psychology for his research exploring bully/victim problems among the Province's school pupils. This thesis explored the prevalence of bully/victim problems from a multiple indicator approach, explored differential psychometric measurement issues, and the association between involvement in bully/victim problems and various individual difference variables (e.g., psychological health, physical health, depression, happiness, self-esteem, religiosity, personality). Conor is a Chartered Psychologist (CPsychol) with The British Psychological Society), a Chartered Psychologist (C.Psychol.Ps.S.I.) with The Psychological Society of Ireland, and a Chartered Scientist (CSci) with The British Science Council. Conor is also an Associate Fellow of both The British Psychological Society (AFBPsS) and The Psychological Society of Ireland (A.F.Ps.S.I.). Conor's research interests are in the areas of psychology applied to educational policy and processes, educational psychology, bully/victim problems among children and adults, special educational needs, disability, intellectual disability, rare disease, and psychometrics.
