About the speaker, Professor Lois Surgenor

Professor Lois Surgenor gained her PhD in 2002, preceded by 15 years working as a clinical psychologist in mental health services. She has worked for the University since 1996, principally in joint-clinical positions with a later shift to Associate Dean roles within the University.

Her research career has mainly focused on the underlying theme of “mental health condition stumbling blocks” as these relate to cause (“how did this happen to this person”), effective assessments (“how do we assess this”) and evidenced-based practice (“what’s the right thing to do with what we’ve got”). These questions have been mainly applied to the fields of eating disorders and other health conditions. A second service and research theme has been in health practitioner regulation, chairing a regulatory authority and collaborating with academic lawyers.

Lois is an Associate Editor of the Journal of Eating Disorders and on the editorial board of Eating Disorders: The Journal of Treatment and Prevention. She is currently the Associate Dean (Academic) in the Health Sciences Division.
