Biography

Janet Conti an Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology in the School of Psychology, an AHPRA endorsed clinical psychologist and supervisor, and a Psychology Board approved trainer for masterclasses on reflective practice in supervision. She is also a credentialled psychologist with the Australian and New Zealand Academy of Eating Disorders.

Janet's clinical experience informs her research that prioritises giving voice to peoples’ experiences of anorexia nervosa (AN) and other Eating Disorders (EDs) and their experience of its treatment. She has contributed to pedagogical shifts in Western Sydney University’s Master of Clinical Psychology and Master of Professional Psychology programs to increase students’ skills development across a range of therapeutic interventions; to increase awareness and sensitivity to cultural and individual diversity in ways that optimise client voice and appropriate response; and to engage in reflective practice early in the training to ensure an active participation in their professional development. Her teaching pedagogy is fundamentally based on respect and engaged, value-based experiential classroom learning that invites reflective practice in the building of professional identity.  

Janet's research is focused on giving voice to the person/family touched by Eating Disorders (ED) and its treatment. Her research demonstrates and advocates for the prioritisation of the person/family’s voice to inform therapeutic interventions and for clinicians to develop skills in tailoring treatments to the person/family. She has a particular interest in qualitative research, including critical discusive approaches.

I am an Australian researcher who is committed to research that takes seriously the ‘voice’ of those who experience eating disorders, specifically anorexia nervosa (AN), comorbid trauma and their treatment. I have specific skills as a dietitian who understands the physiological impacts of AN and a clinical psychologist who specialises in narrative therapy. I have a comprehensive understanding of client complex needs through direct experience of the benefits of cross-disciplinary tailoring of treatments in the public/private sectors since the 1990s.  

My key research achievements have demonstrated the significance of voice-led treatment interventions for AN and questioned the dominant ways of conceptualising AN. The dominant treatment paradigm for AN narrows the focus of treatment to a limited range of therapeutic modalities that, when they don’t work, risk leaving the adolescent/family to assume they have failed. This may lead to few treatment options to prevent AN progressing to a severe and enduring course. My approach broadens the treatment options through diverse and tailored treatment interventions that prioritise the voice of the experiencing person/family. The translational impact of my research highlights the need to further develop and research more diverse AN therapeutic interventions that give voice to the experiencing person/family, including narrative therapy.
