Howdy! I received my PhD (Clinical Psychology) in 2007. I then went and worked in child and adolescent mental health, primarily as a researcher. My research topics have included evaluation of intensive long-term parent-child psychotherapy, service benchmarking, mental health workforce estimation, and the use of technology in service delivery. Google Scholar has a pretty up-to-date list of my publications.
I left that all behind when I came to work here at Flinders University where I put my psychologist hat back on and joined the excellent team here at Health, Counselling and Disability Services.
My first job was to set-up some digital channels through which the teams at Health, Counselling and Disability (HCD) and OASIS could communicate with the student population. That led to the revised HCD website, OASIS website, HCD newlsetter and HCD blog.
Now my time is focused on writing about and teaching on the topics of wellbeing and productivity. I make the assumption that we (students and staff) all want to be productive, happy (whatever that term means for you) and feel like we belong as part of the Flinders Community. As I learn how to achieve those things from the psychological literature, I share that via our different communication channels.
I never thought that I wanted to teach, but it turns out it is what I like doing most :)
