We advise on the most effective approaches to promoting wellness and intervening at the earliest opportunities in troubled pathways.
We bring together life-course, clinical and public health research and practice to describe the major milestones in emotional life. We then engage systems for translating our research knowledge broadly to the community, organisations and government.

How we perform our research
Research at SEED is supported by five enablers:
The EpiBiostats Unit provides input into all key phases of research projects from conceptualisation through to dissemination.
We support our students and staff in the areas of cohort studies, clinical trials and systematic and meta-analytic reviews via contemporary and extensive online resources.
We also offer enrichment services through regular workshops scheduled throughout the year and offer consultation with specialists
We use electronic multimedia, the internet and information and communication technologies for best practice psychological research and service delivery.
We utilise ICT to improve intervention efficacy via increased engagement, tailored interventions and increased patient self-management regardless of geographic, social or economic factors.
Consistent with Deakin's commitment to research excellence, SEED's core mantra is dedicated to conducting high-quality research. We achieve this by:
- asking important questions
- having a clear governance structure
- drawing on cutting-edge methodologies
- collaborating authentically with international experts, industry and consumers.
We also report our work to a wide range of audiences via a number of mediums including media, training, conferences, consumer groups, high-impact publications and practice journals.
To maintain a leadership research role in research around social and emotional development in the first decades of life, we're informed about current research through our collaborations and work with national and global partners.
By building on existing partnerships and establishing new links relevant to our mission, we work collaboratively to address the crucial questions.
In line with Deakin's vision, we aim to be recognised for our research capability and contribute to resolving key global issues of social importance.
