Clinical Research Group
The Clinical Research Group aims to conduct research which informs, evaluates and refines clinical practice across the lifespan. Member research interests span personality disorders, neurodevelopmental disorders, schizophrenia, mood disorders (depressive, bipolar and anxiety), trauma, stress and adjustment disorders, and many more. Honours, Masters and Doctoral research projects are available across all these areas.
Our research is enriched through collaborations with government and private agencies.
Wellbeing and Resilience
The aim of this group is to understand wellbeing and resilience across a broad range of populations. This includes investigating factors that may negatively or positively impact on wellbeing, resilience and quality of life more broadly, as well as examining current theoretical models and measurement tools used in the field. The research interests and methodological approach within the group are very diverse. However, the overarching purpose is to better understand ways in which we can enhance resilience, particularly those facing a range of stressors and challenges, and to improve overall wellbeing and life quality across populations.
