Type of Event:

The Working Out Dads evaluation

Approximately one in 10 fathers experience mental health difficulties in the early years of parenting, yet there is a dearth of evidence-based interventions to promote fathers’ mental health at this time. The Working Out Dads evaluation aims to address a significant gap in knowledge about the effectiveness of early intervention and prevention approaches to promote the health and well-being of fathers in the early years of parenting, to inform policy and best practice in promoting the mental health of fathers and the prevention of family conflict.

Rebecca Giallo is a Senior Research Fellow and Psychologist with the Intergenerational Health research group at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute. She brings over 15 years' experience in life course epidemiological and clinical intervention research focused on promoting the health and wellbeing of children and families.

She co-leads the Strengthening Families Stream which aims to:
(1) explore the impact of early life stress on children and families,
(2) understand what supports resilience in families experiencing early life stress, and
(3) evaluate the effectiveness of clinical interventions to promote intergenerational health and wellbeing.

Rebecca has also worked with children and families in a range of educational, hospital and clinical settings.
