Our practice research

Our Systemic Practice-Research Centre aims to understand and enhance social and emotional health in context, across all life stages and generations, through the promotion of relational health, and healing of relational trauma.

We collaborate, share knowledge and prioritise research translation that better equips communities, organisations and workforces to support the wellbeing of families.

Our research strategic plan reflects our core values as well as those of our funders and stakeholders, and serves multiple practice, policy, public health and research purposes.

Our research framework both reflects and enhances our existing practice culture. This includes a strong commitment to:

  • inclusion
  • equality
  • diversity
  • co-design
  • empowerment
  • respect for complexity.

In 2019 we secured funding for devoted professorial and research fellow positions, and in 2020 we commenced an integrated research program.
