One of CCI’s core activities is conducting clinically applied research in real-life settings. Our primary research focus has been on the development and evaluation of evidence-based treatments for clinical problems including anxiety disorders, depression, bipolar disorder and psychotic disorders.

Our current research interests lie in the following areas:

  • The modular approach to psychotherapy for individuals
  • Processes in treatment outcome
  • Quality of life
  • Training of mental health professionals
  • Attitudes to evidence-based practice
  • Treatment of co-morbid disorders
  • Mechanisms in the maintenance of mental health problems

The following are some of the research projects we have completed:

  • Group treatment for co-morbid anxiety and depression
  • Treatment of social phobia in schizophrenia
  • CBT for bipolar disorder
  • Social skills training for schizophrenia patients
  • The impact of psychosis and symptoms of social phobia on quality of life
  • Perceived stress and psychopathology
  • Risk-taking in patients with obsessive compulsive disorder (in collaboration with Dr Clare Rees, Curtin University)

The following are projects completed in collaboration with YouthLink:
