Through her career, Lisa has been involved in the selection and supervision of people training to become clinical psychologists at the University of Western Australia and Curtin University.  In addition to her academic appointment at UWA in 2018, Lisa is also Director of CBTs WA, an organisation devoted to training mental health professionals in contemporary CBT practices.
