We’re very excited to report that Think Psychologist Melissa Nihill has been accepted to present at the 2013 Australian Psychology Society Conference in Cairns in October. Melissa’s work entitled ‘The influence of online social networking on adolescent girls’ body surveillance, internalisation and body dissatisfaction’ was conducted through the University of Canberra’s Masters program with Dr. Vivienne Lewis and examines how social networking influences how young women view and accept their own body image. Melissa recently wrote in our own Think News about the relationship between social networking and depression however this is a far more in depth and thorough investigation into the impact social networking can have for young women. Congrats to Melissa on being accepted to present.

Think Psychology Psychologist Lisa Knipe continues to chip away at the mountain that is a PhD study. Her area of study is the relationship between eating and emotional behaviour and she has reached the next stage of her research which requires participants to complete a survey. If you are interested in the area or just willing to complete a survey on the topic please click on the link below and assist Lisa in gathering her data.

The Role of Emotions in Eating Behaviour – ANU Survey

It is fantastic for Think to have Lisa undertaking such rigorous research while also specialising in eating, emotional eating, overeating and eating disorders. Lisa will be reducing her hours at Think a little over the coming 6 months to complete her research but she will still be available for appointments (you just might have to wait a bit longer!) and we are currently recruiting for an interim replacement for Lisa with similar expertise. Go Lisa!
