Mr Benjamin Butterworth

My name is Benjamin Butterworth, a PhD student at Glasgow Caledonian University. Studying in my native North East, I graduated from Durham University with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology in 2016, before completing a MRes in Psychology at the University of York in 2017. From there, I moved to Glasgow to take up a PhD studentship investigating the relationship between alcohol use and memory, and how this influences the development of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). I am therefore very interested in alcohol addiction and dependence, both of which drastically affect the prognosis and treatment of PTSD. Outside of my PhD, I’m a proud member of the substance use and misuse group at Glasgow Caledonian University, the Scottish Alcohol Research Network, and postgraduate representative for the Scottish branch of the British Psychological Society.
