Why Add Research Notes into EndNote You never know when you will need that bit of information down the track Makes it easier to search for your own and authors notes You can build up your own data and feedback on certain key articles over time Allows you to save your notes at the point of reference keeping it all neat and tidy   Step 1 Open up your document which hopefully has your reference (in this case Conti, 2015) and then the bulleted notes you’ve added in. You’re going to do the good old ctrl+c /ctrl+v for this one.

Food and Mood Study You are invited to complete a brief 12-minute survey that seeks to compare different dietary patterns and their relationship to mood.   If you are between 18-44 and are an Australian citizen or resident, then please click the link below and you will be directed to the survey. Followers of any diet type are welcome to take part (Omnivores, Vegans or Vegetarians).   The information you provide will contribute to the existing literature on dietary patterns, including plant-based diets and psychological outcomes. The results are intended to help CQU University honours researchers and society better understand

One of the underlying concepts of Psychology that shapes the way in which Psychologists are regulated and governed within Australia is that of the Scientist-Practitioner approach to practice. The Scientist-Practitioner Model seeks to bridge two previously separate roles within Psychology, that of the researcher and clinician. From the first baby steps taken in your undergraduate studies, through to your professional development requirements, Psychologists in Australia are tasked with maintaining the analytical mind of the scientist alongside their interpersonal counseling skills. For some this presents as a more clinical (excuse the pun) appraisal of therapeutic alternatives and a deeper understanding of

What on earth is a High Demand Care-giving Environment? So on my journey through study and research I kept coming up with the rather frustrating division of clumping together different family environments of needs based on the diagnosis of the child or parent. I understand this, it stems from the basic research design formula we use to try unravel the story from each unique perspective. There is however just one teeny tiny flaw in this approach, it focuses on the apparent cause of the parental demands rather than the level of demand being placed.

One of the interesting and somewhat unexpected aspects to finally conducting my own research has been the variety of feedback and responses to it. Thankfully most have approached their responses in a polite and pleasant manner which is greatly appreciated. From information and requests to alter phrasing to be more inclusive through to overall comments on the survey design itself. By and large I can and will adjust as requested as a) I genuinely don’t intend harm or distress towards others and b) I am only human and I can and will make mistakes – happy to learn and grow

I was asked today why I mention the limitations of autism in my participation recruitment video. The reality is that we all face limitations, from the boundaries of physics through to the inevitability of death. One of the most biggest turning points in my own journey in raising my neurodiverse family was when a Psychologist challenged me to rethink what those limitations meant. A limitation can be viewed as an immovable boundary, forced upon you to clip your metaphorical wings. When you view them this way they become points of despair and friction in your life. The “I’ll never” and

Hello, I’m looking for parents in Australia to help participate in my research project. This research could help identify possible areas to direct early intervention efforts for families raising Autistic children. As a parent myself I know first hand how stressful and isolating it can be. I also know how rewarding and amazing it is too. At the end of the day, once all the therapists and support workers go home, it’s you, your children, and the relationship you build with your children. I want to find out what attributes parents can draw when it is just them and their
