Bita Riazati is a Psychologist in Hawthorn
I completed my clinical training in Melbourne and I have spent some of my life in Europe and the Middle East. I have worked in private and public health sector as well as in consultancy roles for many years.
I obtained a Graduate Diploma and a first Class Honours in psychology from University of Melbourne and RMIT. During this time I completed a thesis on the biomarkers of memory decline in Alzheimer’s disease with the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health.
I have a Masters in Arts from Swinburne University. Furthermore I completed a thesis on the historical and cultural factors influencing social change in Afghanistan. Later I received my registration as a psychologist by completing a psychology Masters from the Cairnmillar Institute.
My desire lead my formation in clinical psychoanalysis where I undertook psychoanalytic studies with the ACP. This training has required a commitment to ongoing clinical supervision and many years of intensive and rigorous personal analysis with my own psychoanalyst.
Other than supervision, I attend seminars with a number of centres including APS, CFAR and LCA. In addition I have presented my work at conferences and symposia in Melbourne. I am up to date with legal requirements and I can write reports for court. Moreover, I am a fluent speaker of Persian Farsi.
