Professor Kate Tchanturia receives British Psychological Society Practice Board’s Award

Professor Kate Tchanturia,  Ilia State University  (ISU) and King’s College Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, received the British Psychological Society Practice Board’s award for her distinguished contribution to practice.

Professor Tchanturia started her UK career in 1997, after receiving a Royal Society Award to conduct research in neuropsychology of eating disorders in London.

Her studies in the field of eating disorders led to trailblazing outstanding developments, innovative research programmes and ground-breaking approaches to clinical practice.

In particular, her research to explore the link between eating disorders and autistic spectrum disorders (ASD) resulted in changes to inpatient services, making them socially inclusive and easier for people with ASD to access mainstream care.

Professor Chanturia’s work has increased the public’s understanding of eating disorders and led innovative improvements for those who access services and those who work in them.
