Prof. Gisli Gudjonsson awarded a CBE

 

Professor Gísli Hannes Guðjónsson has been appointed Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for his long and celebrated service in Clinical Psychology. Gísli is in celebrated company on the Queen’s Honours List in 2011 that among others, includes Oscar winner Colin Firth. He is believed to be the first person to receive a CBE for services to clinical psychology. 
 
He is currently the head of Forensic Psychology at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM). Gísli has worked as a clinical psychologist in Britain since 1977 and moved to King’s College London in 1980. 
 
During his career in Britain, Gísli has been called upon to provide expert evaluation in a number of high profile court cases, including those of the Guildford Four, the Birmingham Six, and of late Dr. David Kelly. 
 
Gísli will receive the honours in a special ceremony later this summer or early autumn.
