Tanya Lereya

Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families
Dr. Tanya Lereya is a research fellow in the Evidence Based Practice Unit (EBPU) based across University College London and the Anna Freud Centre. She completed her PhD, which focused on the precursors and consequences of bullying involvement, and worked as a research fellow for 2 years at the University of Warwick. Her previous work includes investigating the range of risk factors for psychopathology and the long lasting effects into adulthood. In particular, she focused on the impact of bullying victimisation on adolescents’ well-being and how experiences of bullying, as early as primary school, affect long-term psychological and social functioning. Her current research focuses on social, emotional and educational outcomes of children; and the effectiveness of interventions to improve children’s mental health and well-being in schools. She is particularly interested in investigating factors that help children in the face of adversity and would like to identify protective factors that may reduce the adverse effects of stress.
