Adj A/Prof Amanda Gordon


Ms Sandra Scott
A member of the College of Educational & Developmental Psychologists, most of my career has been at the coalface of child and adolescent mental health, in primary and secondary schools.

I have a strong interest in the application of neuroscience and the burgeoning evidence base of non-pharmacological treatments for psychiatric conditions.

I believe that the skills of psychologists are under-recognised across Australian society in education, health, justice and many other sectors. Our scope and our challenge is enormous. Through APS we may collectively advance the utility and cause of our profession, reduce the stigma of mental illness and showcase the wide applicability of psychology. I feel passionate about the APS Believe in Change campaign. My belief in change is the reason I decided to study the brain, mind and human potential.

Through my role as Secretary of Sydney Branch I aim to support communication, and our strength as a united profession.

Committee Member

Ms Rose Evans
I have recently completed my 4+2 internship and gained registration. Because of my experiences as a provisional psychologist I am passionate about my role as Early Career Psychologist Representative for the Sydney Branch. I present regular PD for provisional psychologists on Surviving the National Psychology Exam and can often be found on the facebook forums for provisional psychs if you have a question about the registration process.

I also love assessment and I am the National Supervising Psychologist for Australian Mensa.

I have had previous careers in wine marketing and teaching high school. I have 4 children, 2 beagles and a husband. I enjoy pottering in the garden with my chickens, though I have a black thumb, reading science fiction, doing jigsaw puzzles and I am teaching myself how to code to make an iPad app for psychologists.

Please email me if you have any registration or early career questions or suggestions for PD.
