Viviana has always been fascinated by psychology and what makes people tick, and she has a particular interest in teaching students how to manage study stress. Stress can be both good and bad and in this talk, Viviana will focus on the role of stress in academic performance, and how stress can enhance and hinder performance. As the developer of the Study without Stress program for HSC students, she will discuss simple techniques that students can use to manage stress levels and maximise academic performance.


Viviana has keen interest in working with individuals with mental disorders right across the lifespan including children and older adults. She works both as a practicing clinical psychologist, as well as an academic conducting research to develop and evaluate psychological interventions to assist children, adolescents and older adults to overcome anxiety and depression using relatively simply techniques. Viviana completed a Bachelor of Psychology (Honours) at Macquarie University, followed by a Masters of Psychology (Clinical) at the University of New South Wales. Whilst working as a Clinical Psychologist in private practice, she returned to Macquarie University to complete a Ph.D. in psychology. She is now a practising clinical psychologist and Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at Macquarie University where she conducts research and teaches Masters of Clinical Psychology students.
