What we do
SEED Research is organised into three research themes
What Matters in shaping emotional and social developmental across the early life course?
What Works to promote emotional security and connection in children and young people?
What Translates into sustainable prevention, treatment and health promotion programs?
Organised across three developmental streams
First 2000 days: Intergenerational-Early Childhood (0-5 years)
First 5000 days: Childhood to Adolescence Stream (0-13 years)
First 10,000 days: Adolescence to Young Adulthood Stream (0-27 years)
SEED is committed to conducting high quality research across the continuum of care; Prevention: universal, selective, indicated; Intervention/Treatment: Case identification, treatment for known disorders and Continuing care/Maintenance: Compliance with long-term treatment to reduce relapse and recurrence, after care (including rehabilitation).

SEED research streams work closely with SEED research themes to define developmentally appropriate indicators of emotional security at each age and stage (What Matters), to advise of developmentally appropriate interventions for promoting emotional security (What Works) , and to inform developmentally integrated intervention delivery systems based on indicators and interventions (What Matters).

SEED holds a vision for comprehensive monitoring and intervention from infancy to adulthood. SEED Life course Sciences hosts some of Australia’s oldest longitudinal studies and is using these data to define key indicators of emotional growth at each age and stage.
SEED Intervention Sciences is compiling an evidence based list of interventions that address key emotional growth indicators at each age and stage. SEED Translation Sciences is working to implement indicators and intervention within education and health service systems.
