Synopsis:

2017

Hello Students

I’m a clinical psychologist with basic and applied research interests in music and emotion. I’ve supervised 14 honours students so far, 7 of these have had their thesis published and a further 4 are in preparation for publication.

My supervision style is quite hands-on and I expect my students to attend research meetings, to communicate with me regularly throughout the year (regardless of how progress is going), and to be good team players with others involved in the project (often colleagues and clinical psychology interns). Students are expected to take charge of their own ethics applications, data collection and statistical analysis, with guidance from me (and other when necessary).

In 2017, I am able to supervise up to 3 motivated students, with a choice from the following potential projects that I think will make a significant contribution to theory or practice and give the student an interesting research experience:

  1. The Live Wires music program to enhance cognitive and social functioning in older adults.

This one will probably be based at a retirement village with independent living adults around the ages of 60-75 years (i.e. early retirement, not needing nursing care). It will involve weekly group warm ups and singing of music composed by Dr Robert Davidson at the UQ School of Music. Intern clinical and neuropsychology students will be involved to help with the pre- and post-program assessment of participants cognitive functioning, social connectedness, and mental wellbeing. Professor Cath Haslam, Dr Robert Davidson, and Professor Stephen Clift from the UK are also involved in this project.

2. The Groups 4 Health: Addiction Recovery project

The Groups 4 Health program developed at UQ by Professor Cath Haslam and colleagues will be modified for adults undergoing outpatient treatment for substance use disorders at Metro North Drug and Alcohol services. The brief group program involves educating participants about the important influence of their social groups and networks and social identities: "I'm a drug user"; "I'm a person in recovery", etc, and helps them to repair or build social group memberships that are likely to support their ongoing recovery. The student will be involved in assessing participants on self report and implicit identity measures at multiple time points, and co-facilitating the group sessions under my supervision, alongside other students and allied health professionals. Professor Cath Haslam, Dr Tegan Cruwys, Dr Mark Daglish (Roma Street Clinic) and several colleagues at the London South Bank University are also involved in this project.

3. Tuned In music emotion regulation program with young people in residential treatment for substance misuse - co-supervised with Professor Leanne Hides.

This group program is designed to help young people increase their awareness of their emotional states and confidence to regulate their emotions and cravings using music listening and other strategies. The program has been effective with healthy teens in school and university settings as well as at risk adolescents. This study is likely to run at a residential rehabilitation at the Gold Coast, and the student will be involved in recruiting, assessing the participants, and co-facilitating the group program under my supervision.
