Projects per year
My research and professional aims are to reduce the prevalence and burden of common mental health disorders, and reduce barriers to care.
There are three parts to this research. First is research aimed at understanding the mechanisms of change during psychological therapy. Second is research concerned with the development and evaluation of new psychological treatment models. Third is research aimed at determining how these protocols can be most safety and effectively deployed in routine clinical settings.
The scope of my work is both conceptual and pragmatic. My current research explores the role of everyday behaviours and cognitive (thinking) styles on our emotional health and resilience. This has implications for the development and delivery of new treatments for conditions such as depressive and anxiety disorders. My other current projects are concerned with the development of standards and regulations for digital models of psychological care.
My roles include Project Director of the Australian national MindSpot Clinic, www.mindspot.org.au, Project Director of the Western Australian Practitioner Online Referral and Treatment Service (PORTS), www.ports.org.au, and Co-Director of the eCentreClinic research clinic, www.ecentreclinic.org. I currently serve as Chair of the Digital Mental Health Advisory Group to the Australian Commission for Safety and Quality in Health Care, and am a member of the Digital Mental Health Advisory Group for the Australian Department of Health.
