- About Deakin
Dr Gennady Baksheev is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Centre for Mental Health and Wellbeing Research working with the Strengthening Australia’s Social and Economic Fabric group. He completed his PhD in forensic psychology at Monash University. This work pertained to a novel forensic mental health question, characterising a sample of police cell detainees to ascertain their level of health-related burden to inform the need for functional inter-agency collaborations to meet the complex needs of mentally ill offenders.
Since then, Dr Baksheev’s work has focused on youth mental health. This has included working in a research team that has investigated emotional experiences among a large cohort of high school students, trialling functional recovery interventions in first-episode psychosis, and also an evaluation of a forensic satellite clinic that was embedded in a youth mental health service. He has published this work in national and international peer-reviewed journals. He has also presented at national and international conferences.
Dr Baksheev’s role in the Centre for Mental Health and Wellbeing Research is to build research capacity through collaborations with members of the Centre. This work includes investigating mental health needs among young offenders, strategies for prevention of youth violence, and also evaluating communication skills training to improve clinical interviewing skills among medical physicians.
