Research Focus Areas
The Deakin Centre for Drug, Alcohol and Addiction Research (CEDAAR)
The Deakin Centre for Drug, Alcohol and Addiction Research (CEDAAR) is a Specialist Research Centre that conducts research into the psychological, biological, socio-political, and clinical aspects of Alcohol and other Drug (AOD) use, related behaviour, and consequent harm. Our program is a specialist research centre of the Deakin Centre for Social and Early Emotional Development (SEED), as we look to understand many of the problems associated with substance and related harms from a developmentally informed perspective.
Young Adulthood Emotional Growth Index
The purpose of the Young Adult Emotional Growth Index Project is to identify a definitive set of socio-emotional indicators as they relate to the period spanning late adolescence and into emerging adulthood. The index will be developed within leading Australian longitudinal datasets running through SEED, the Melbourne Children’s Campus, and the Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth.
