Clinical psychology and clinical neuropsychology

Improving quality of life for those impacted by brain and mental disorders

Quality of life can be impacted negatively and positively through factors that exist within the individual and society.

Our clinical psychology and clinical neuropsychology researchers are exploring theories and interventions to improve quality of life by understanding the causes and consequences of brain and mental disorders.

We focus on assessment, treatment and rehabilitation across the lifespan, societies and cultures. Our MPsych and PhD programs are a key way to engage with research in these areas and many of our graduates continue our research engagement with hospitals and health services across the nation.
