Rachel Hayes

Trial Manager - STARS Study

2978

South Cloisters 2.05

Rachel has spent over 17 years working in psychological research, initally exploring cognitive developmental psychology and more recently adult mental health. She worked in the Mood Disorder Centre at the University for over 6 years on a number of projects, the largest being her role as Trial Manager for the PREVENT trial.  This trial was asking the question 'Is mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) superior to maintenance antidepressant medication (m-ADM) in preventing depression relapse / recurrence over 24 months for patients with a history of recurrent depression?'

Rachel is now working as the Trial Manager for the STARS study, a cluster RCT of the Incredible Years Teacher Classroom Management (TCM) programme. The STARS programme of work was developed as a PenCLAHRC project and commenced in 2010 with two years of preparatory work, the STARS Feasibility Studies, which involved delivering the TCM course to 40 primary schools teachers. The team utilized the feedback from these teachers and our Advisory Group, (comprising headteachers, special needs teachers and parents) in the development of the RCT.

STARS is investigating whether training teachers in TCM strategies has benefits for the child and the teacher, specifically improving child behaviour and academic attainment and improving teachers’ sense of professional efficacy and mental health. The RCT started in September 2012 and will work with 80 primary schools and up to 1600 families in Devon between 09/2012 – 06/2017.

Rachel has completed a PhD with Alan Slater in 2002 investigating young infants’ perception of small speech sounds (rhyme and alliteration). She has worked with a number of different people in the Mood Disorders Centre (University of Exeter) including Heather O'Mahen and Kim Wright investigating group BA's efficacy for the treatment of depression, Tom Lynch looking at emotional sensitivity, and developing an on-line CBT programme for post-natal depression. Rachel managed the large CTIMP RCT PREVENT with Willem Kuyken. She is now working in the Medical School with Tamsin Ford managing the STARS RCT which is investigating whether training teachers in Incredible Years Teacher Classroom Management (TCM) strategies has benefits for the child and the teacher, specifically improving child behaviour and academic attainment and improving teachers’ sense of professional efficacy and mental health.
