Dr Orlanda Harvey


Orlanda recently completed her PhD exploring men’s recreational use of Androgenic Anabolic Steroid Use. She is now a part-time lecturer in Social Work, specialising in Developing Professional Relationships and Leadership. She is also working part-time on an EU funded research project: “The Other Side of the Story: Perpetrators in Change” (OSSPC); the aim of the project is to prevent further domestic violence and change violent behavioural patterns by increasing the capacity of frontline workers that will further teach perpetrators of domestic violence to adopt non-violent behaviour in interpersonal relationships and understand the impact of domestic violence on the them, family and community.

Prior to that, she was a learning and development professional (with an interest in leadership and management).
