About Don Pritchard

Born in Ranfurly Otago New Zealand where at nearby Waipiata my Mother was a nurse and my father a gardener. I went to primary school in Timaru and to Boys Technical College. I spent some time as a Journalist Cadet on the Timaru Herald and then as an apprentice electrician with the local MED. I moved to Christchurch to go to Canterbury University meaning to study Journalism but the course was not not offered in the year that I enrolled. I swapped to a Psychology Degree and studied Psychology, English,Sociology, Greek Philosophy and Art, Religious Studies ( Psychology and Philosophy) and Education. After graduation I gained a job as a Guidance Officer in the Education Department dealing with directing placing teens into suitable jobs. While there I applied for and won , a scholarship to study Clinical Psychology at my old University while being attached to a psychiatric facility. In my last year I tangled with the Health Department Psychiatric Director and decided to move to Australia. In Australia I began with an appointment dealing with distressed children and families, but found that it was not what I wanted so I moved to a large Psychiatric in Adelaide. I was appointed from there to the Senior role in the Health Department as the Chief. At the end of that appointment I was seconded to Adelaide University as a Senior Lecturer and taught a Master's course in Clinical Psychology. I was appointed Director of the Stress Management Clinic within the University. I left there and went to what was supposed to be a Locum job in Buckingham, England. On moving back to Australia I was employed in a private practice and by an American company, contracted to assess the suitability of applicants for the military, I then retired.
