A/Prof Tonny Anderson has a professional background as an authorized clinical health psychologist with a profound expertise in treatment of chronic pain conditions. My research is within the field of health psychology and clinical psychology, assessing how psychological trauma affects pain and pain behaviours. Also, pre-trauma vulnerability factors, such as attachment insecurity is among my research interests. In particular, I am interested in how attachment orientations affects, pain and pain behaviours. The main goal of my research activities is to improve interventions for patients with chronic pain conditions and to prevent the development of chronic pain after whiplash injury. Currently, I am collaborating with CONROD researchers on a RCT study assessing trauma-focused CBT and physiotherapeutic training for chronic whiplash associated disorder with co-morbid posttraumatic stress disorder.
