Indigenous research

Our group currently undertakes research in various areas related to psychology and wellbeing, and actively pursues competitive grant funding through such bodies as the ARC, NHMRC and philanthropic bodies.

A key part of our approach focuses on adhering to the principles of Indigenous research; responsibility, respect and reciprocity and a holistic understanding of Indigenous wellbeing. This includes pursuing self-determined research and outcomes for Indigenous communities, and the use of Indigenous methodologies, co-design, and community engagement.

We currently undertake research in the areas of:

  • Indigenous social and emotional wellbeing
  • Landcare
  • Lateral violence
  • Indigenous men’s support groups
  • Substance use
  • Cultural identity
  • Indigenous youth and connection to culture
  • Indigenous research methodologies
