Can community driven research help us understand some of the complexities?
Dr Graham Gee Clinical Psychologist and Senior Research Fellow
The University of Melbourne, Department of Rural Health bring you a Public Lecture by Dr Graham Gee.
Graham is an Aboriginal man also with Celtic heritage from Darwin.
Graham previously worked as a Psychologist at the Victorian Aboriginal Health Service for 10 years and has recently taken up the position of Senior Research Fellow at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute. His research focuses on Aboriginal mental health and social and emotional wellbeing, and resilience and recovery from trauma.
Graham will present findings from several community controlled projects that have used the Aboriginal Resilience and Recovery Questionnaire (ARRQ).
These projects conducted in partnership with the Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisations (ACCHO) are building understanding of what types of personal, relationship, community and cultural determinants of wellbeing are associated with better post-trauma and other mental health and wellbeing outcomes.
Graham will also discuss the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) recent introduction of the Complex Trauma construct in the field of mental health and present early findings from national workshops with Aboriginal practitioners and community members that has led to the early stages of developing an Aboriginal Complex Trauma response questionnaire.
