Partners in research
School of Psychology staff engage in collaborative research with organisations across a wide range of sectors, including government, health services, business and community organisations. The partnerships enable the School to provide our research students with excellent opportunities for applied research. Much of the research in the School of Psychology is conducted with partner organisations through the Centre for Mental Health and Wellbeing Research.
Our partners include:
The School of Psychology has over 100 partner organisations which offer students (Clinical, Health, Forensic and Organisational Psychology students) the opportunity for exposure to real life work situations.
Our partnerships with health services have led to the establishment of joint psychology clinics, where our postgraduate students undertake placements. The Eastern Health Psychology Clinic has been operating successfully for a number of years, and we are looking forward to the Barwon Health Psychology Clinic being operational in the near future.
Other partners include:
Partners in teaching
We encourage guest lectures from our industry partners. In this way we can maintain our blend of academic teaching with contemporary practice.
Partners in governance and course development
Each Course has an Advisory Board which is comprised of staff, students, academics from other institutions and individuals from our partner organisations. This allows people to share their industry knowledge and have input into course development.
Partners in consulting
The School of Psychology also engages in consultancy projects with some of our industry partners. Consultancy projects often arise from our partnerships, though they may also be in response to public tenders. Consultancy projects are commercial fee for service based transactions wherein the School staff expertise is contracted out to the other party. The projects may involve diverse deliverables including training programs, development of materials, data collection and analysis, evaluations, and advice.
