Stacey Hokke

Does flexible work ‘work’ in Australia? A survey of employed mothers’ and fathers’ work arrangements and health outcomes

Dr Stacey Hokke is an early career researcher in the Transition to Contemporary Parenthood Program at the Judith Lumley Centre. Her research focuses on supporting the health and social and emotional wellbeing of parents and identifying evidence-based strategies that support mothers and fathers in their parenting role. Dr Hokke’s current research examines the key challenges facing parents in contemporary society. She investigates how workplaces can better support parents to reduce work-family conflict, promote parent health and wellbeing, and enable gender equality in the division of work and care. Her research also examines the influence of social media during the transition to parenthood, and the experiences of parents with childhood maltreatment during the perinatal and early parenting period.
