A/Prof Sharp's contribution spanned all areas, particularly her work in the field of body image related disorders including eating disorders and body dysmorphic disorder.

These guidelines were first published in 2018 and she is currently leading the update of these guidelines to be released in late 2022/early 2023. A/Prof Sharp was kindly nominated for the award by her post-doc Dr Kathleen de Boer.

The award is granted annually to a member of the Victorian section of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) College of Clinical Psychologists who has made a significant contribution to clinical psychology in Victoria. The Award seeks to promote and encourage excellence in clinical psychology and to reward and encourage clinical psychologists for their substantial contribution in the areas of assessment and treatment, education, research, community education, training / supervision, mentoring, advocacy and / or service development.
