She is trained in CBTp, CBT, ACT, and DBT that encompasses principles of recovery, strength-based, trauma-informed, and person-centered values. Dr. Ung's career interests focuses on the early detection and evidence-based interventions for psychosis spectrum disorders. Her research interests also include the psychosocial impact of mental health stigma (public and internalized) of people experiencing psychosis.

Dr. Ung utilizes the biopsychosocial framework in her understanding in how people access and participate in treatment. She strives to understand how community resources, access to care, treatment, and client advocacy can help to address systemic and social issues related to mental health care. As such, she is active in the training of students in the provision of evidence-based treatment for marginalized communities to de-stigmatize and improve the quality of care for people struggling with a mental health concern.
