The Centre for Emotional Health, supported by the Australian Research Council, is conducting and exciting project
– the Risks to Adolescent Wellbeing (RAW) project.
The RAW Project, under the direction of Distinguished Professor Ron Rapee, aims to understand the forces that shape teenage social and emotional development, and find the key to building a stronger and more productive society. With over 500 families recruited, the project is developing one of the richest datasets of teenage emotional development worldwide. Assessments for this project are conducted once per year for five years, and hopefully beyond. Each year, the assessment process includes; questionnaires, phone interviews, and a lab session. We are currently in our 4th year of testing.
