An entertaining panel discussion on the pros and cons of online learning. Come along and join in with your thoughts and questions for the panel.

We all know that online training is on the increase. Many see this as a huge benefit: just-in-time learning, costs kept down, learn anywhere... What could be better?

But research demonstrated that people learn better face to face and some things need to be done in person.

Google me Happy! Managing youth mental health online

Google me Happy! The future of managing young people’s mental health support needs


Presented with the Faculty of Health Sciences



Young people aged 12-25 are the highest at-risk group for experiencing mental health problems. They are also the group most likely to look for help and support online. Using the internet for social networking is their haven – but is it safe, reliable and helpful?

This seminar takes a look at an innovative way to manage young people’s mental health issues using Google Plus. Co-presented with Tracy Adams, CEO of BoysTown – a key not for profit organisation providing support to young people and their families – this talk will give a fresh perspective on how to help young people feel safe and supported, and to maintain their mental health throughout their formative years.

The 4th Annual National Safety Psychology Conference 2014

The 4th Annual National Safety Psychology Conference 2014

All organisations operating in high risk safety critical industries all share the common goal of total safety culture. Without adequately addressing human behaviour and underlying impacts of attitude, awareness and ability however, organisations are at risk of failing to understand the full suite of issues contributing to success and failure in the safety environment. This exciting concept to safety will delve deeper into the psychology behind the human dynamics of safety. By addressing human behavior, attitude and applying the psychology lens to improve health and safety, organisations will be better able to foster the culture of care necessary to achieve the goal of Zero Harm.
