Nat Sch Psychology
I am a Clinical, Health, Educational and Developmental Psychologist and an Associate Professor in Clinical Psychology at Australian Catholic University Melbourne. My primary areas of research include; (1) the role of psychology in understanding and treating eating, weight and body image concerns and their biopsychosocial comorbidities (e.g., diabetes, depression, stigma), (2) the role of parents in improving child behaviour and well being, and (3) promoting evidence-based practice and the generation of practice-based evidence in 'real-world' settings.
I am particularly interested in developing and/or evaluating evidence based interventions, conducting intervention trials (including efficacy, effectiveness, implementation) and evaluating the effectiveness of real-world treatment programs. I work closely with a range of hospital, community and private treatment services and have recently lead the establishment of the ACU Clinic for Health Eating and Weight to provide high quality low cost assessment, treatment and support for eating, weight and body image concerns and to facilitate clinical research in this area.
