Psychology: Francis Puccio
Psychology was not Francis' first pursuit, but rather an interest that grew out of his first degree. Before graduating from his Master of Clinical Psychology & PhD, Francis undertook a Creative Arts degree with the Victorian College of the Arts, specialising in creative writing and photography. At first glimpse, these academic pursuits appear quite a distance apart. However, as Francis explained, the two fields share an important connection.
