Personal profile

Biography

Andrea is a Professor at Monash University, Clayton and Director of Psychological Programs at the Krongold Clinic.  She is the Editor in Chief of the journal Advances in Mental Health, Associate Editor for Australian Psychologist, and has served as guest editor for the Medical Journal of Australia and Child & Youth Services Review for special issues related to families where a parent has a mental illness. 

 

Andrea’s area of expertise is in the area of vulnerable families, especially those where a parent has a mental illness.  Working in collaboration with parents and youth, Andrea has established an active program of research regarding evidence based interventions for families and professional development materials for clinicians.   Andrea has received funding from beyondblue, the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development (Vic and Qld), Department of Health (Victoria and NSW) and the Australian Infant, Child, Adolescent and Family Mental Health Association.  Recent projects include the category one Mental Illness Research Fund ($1.85 million) for a randomized controlled trial titled Developing an Australian-first recovery model for parents in Victorian mental health and family services.  Another recent project, Family focused practice within a recovery framework, from the Partners in Recovery Initiative, aimed to conceptualise the place of families within the recovery journal for those with a mental illness.   

 

Andrea was one of the initiators of the Parental and Family Mental Health Worldwide collaborative, which meets every two years in Prato, Italy.  The collaborative brings together researchers from around the world to exponentially advance the parental mental health research agenda.  Her leadership in this collaborative has involved mentoring current and future research leaders in Australia, North  America,  Norway, Thailand, the Netherlands, the UK and Finland.  

 

Andrea was lead editor of:

 

Reupert, A., Maybery, D., Nicholson, J., Gopfert, M., &  Seeman, M (2015).  Parental psychiatric disorders.  Distressed parents and their families (3rd ed.).  London: Cambridge University Press. 

 

The book was the 2016 winner of the British Medical Assocation President's prize.
