Carrigan Veach and Dr. Sonya Munsell

Dr. Sonya Munsell, associate professor in Rogers State University’s Department of Psychology and Sociology, and RSU senior community counseling major Carrigan Veach, recently served as panelists, offering their insights on the psychology behind eating disorders.

In February, Munsell and Veach presented their research titled “Eating Disorders and the Experiences of Culturally Diverse Groups” virtually at Kent and Medway’s All Ages Eating Disorders Research Consortium in the United Kingdom. Munsell and Veach presented their research in the same session as senior clinical psychologist and Natural Institute of Health Research clinical academic fellow Dr. Anna Oldershaw, who presented her own research on a new emotion-focused approach to working with anorexia nervosa.

Dr. Munsell also served as the moderator and panelist at the University of Central Oklahoma’s discussion on “Eating Orders and Addition,” held at UCO in Edmond March 30.
