We look forward to sharing the knowledge and expertise of our wonderful National Keynote Speaker line up at the 2019 APS 39th ASM, to be held at the Gold Coast Convention & Exhibition Centre, April 2019.
Dr Melissa Day
Dr. Day completed her MA(Clin) and PhD at the University of Alabama, followed by her Clinical Psychology residency at the University of Washington. Dr. Day then undertook a post-doctoral research fellowship in pain psychology, also at the University of Washington. She is now a licensed Clinical Psychologist in Australia and most recently, was awarded a National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Research Fellowship, which she is completing within the School of Psychology at The University of Queensland, where she is also a Senior Lecturer in Clinical Psychology. Dr. Day’s program of research has focused on implementing randomized controlled trials to evaluate the efficacy and mechanisms of cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness-based interventions for chronic pain conditions. She recently published a sole authored book with Wiley titled, “Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy for Chronic Pain: A Clinical Manual and Guide”. More recently she has also contributed to the “Bonica’s Management of Pain 5th edition”, as a co-author, writing a chapter on Group Therapy.
We are delighted to have Dr. Day involved in 2019 APS 39th ASM. We hope you will be able to attend and enjoy everything this ASM has to offer.
