Human Development and Psychological Dimensions of Ageing
My PhD thesis entitiled, Memory rehabilitation in people with dementia: Improving memory with spaced retreival training and examining the roles of memory efficacy perceptions and awareness, has been successfully examined. My PhD Project examined relationships between perceptions about the memory of a person with dementia, held by the individual themself and by a close family member. Their role in the memory performance of the person with dementia was examined. I am currently working on a project evaluating the effectiveness of a psychosocial intervention for people with dementia living in a residential aged care facility. I am also interested in intergenerational relationships, particularly between grandparents and grandchildren. I have also worked on part of the Australian Longitudinal study of Ageing Project.
