Rebecca Twinley (known to many as 'Bex') recently took up the post of Senior Lecturer on the Occupational Therapy Programme at the University of Brighton. Bex is creator of the concept 'The Dark Side of Occupation', which has been attracting increasing global attention. Bex has been an approved member of the Occupational Therapy Europe Register of Experts in the area of dark side of occupation since May 2019. Her doctoral work focused on the lack of acknowledgement regarding a form of sexual offending that had been ignored: woman-to-woman rape and sexual assault. She enjoys thinking critically, challenging norms and assumptions, or just the plain and obvious lack of address of issues that impact upon people and their subjective experiences of occupations. Bex lives in East Sussex, UK and works at the University of Brighton, which she calls her "occupational home".
