SIENA PERRY Agency manager – Red PR Group Graduate – Master of Communication After completing a year volunteering as a communications officer with the UN in the Lao PRD, Siena Perry knew she had to return to higher education to take the next step in her career. “My undergraduate degree was a Bachelors in Art History. I fell into PR and loved it. But I had reached the limit of where I could go without tertiary qualifications and I also wanted to be inspired by international best practices.” “I looked into masters courses throughout the English speaking world and conversed with lots of academics about their offerings. “I decided to go with UQ because of its multidisciplinary approach to communication and friendly, helpful academics who were engaged in really interesting research. “I loved being able to take really diverse courses- from communication for social change and development communication, to business leadership courses. This diversity of subjects inspired me and set me up for the contemporary business world.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES Communication professionals are creative and strategic thinkers who are in demand by employers around the globe. They are part of one of the fastest growing sectors of our modern economy and are needed in a wide range of industries and organisations. Graduates are suited to a variety of career opportunities, including: Mediation/dispute/crisis consultancy; Communication management in government and commercial agencies; Interactive multimedia design and web management; Advertising; Media administration; Organisational communication; Strategic communication and public relations; Publicity and campaign management; Publishing; Event management; Web-based education; Project management in international development; Community development in multicultural organisations; and Advocacy in NGOs.

“I also learnt a lot from other students, many of whom were taking time out from successful careers to upskill themselves. “But most importantly, I found all the academics amazingly helpful, supportive and willing to go above and beyond.” Siena is now Agency Manager of the Red PR Group, managing a team of 15 in offices in Brisbane and Sydney.

“CSRM is at the forefront of defining the core competencies, the curriculum and delivery of course work needed in this vital area.” BRUCE HARVEY GLOBAL PRACTICE LEADER – COMMUNITIES RIO TINTO

PROGRAM OVERVIEW The Community Relations program provides an opportunity for postgraduate students (both domestic and international) to gain knowledge and skills that will help them to understand, engage with and contribute to the development of communities that are impacted by mining and related activities. This course is designed to prepare students for the challenges associated with resource developments in increasingly complex social and political contexts. Key areas covered in this program are: – Community engagement – Community and economic development – Cultural awareness – Research and evaluation methods

4 – AREAS OF STUDY

PROGRAM DELIVERY The program is delivered primarily online, with some intensive face-to-face delivery for key courses. The program is coordinated by the Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining (CSRM), which has an international reputation for delivering Community Relations education and professional development for the global resource industry. It also draws upon expertise across The University of Queensland and the Australian National University. For a comprehensive course list please refer to www.uq.edu.au/study

BRIONY COLEMAN Graduate – Masters of Community Relations (Resources Sector) Briony Coleman is well on track to a successful career in the mining industry. Since August 2011, she has been working at a gold mine in northern Nevada, USA, as the senior environmental coordinator with Newmont Mining Corporation. In this role, she oversees compliance to regulatory requirements and conformance to company standards, including monitoring and reporting in a range of management areas such as water, waste and chemicals. “I love the wide range of tasks involved in my job, from sampling in the field to developing management systems, from chemical analysis to compiling and analysing data for reporting purposes,” Briony said. “I am also able to work with communities around the areas where we operate and have had the opportunity to work in a number of different locations across the globe.” Briony has previously worked on several mine sites in the Northern Territory and the Western Australian goldfields, and also Newmont’s Perth-based regional office. She said making the move to the US was both a challenging and rewarding step in her career. “The biggest learning curve since starting work in the US is the different regulatory requirements in the environmental sector,” she said.

PRACTICAL EXPERIENCES In addition to the four core courses completed as part of the Graduate Certificate, students who enrol in the Diploma or Masters qualification complete an additional three courses and a combination of elective and research options. To date, students who have participated in the program have worked in the resources sector in over fifteen countries worldwide. Through a focus on industry best practice, key issues and practical application, this program supports the professionalisation of social practitioners in the resources sector.

APPLICATIONS Please visit www.csrm.uq.edu.au/ community-relations for application information.

“I’ve also noticed that in the community relations area—from my past experience in the Northern Territory and Western Australia—there is less focus in the US on Indigenous communities.” “This is mostly a function of the relative density of populations in mining areas within the country, and more of a focus on ‘small town’ and agricultural communities that may be impacted by mining operations.” Briony said her Masters degree enhanced her skills in communication and working with communities. “The degree promotes to the resource sector and other industries the importance of community relations,” she said. “It also gives both an Australian and international perspective, and educates you on both Indigenous and nonIndigenous communities within these perspectives.”

DR PIETER ROSSOUW Program Director, Master of Counselling Dr Rossouw believes the Applied Brain Based Therapies offered as part of the Counselling program at UQ, make it truly unique. “There has been a significant shift from understanding the brain as a neurochemical system with permanent neural (nerve) pathways to acknowledging that the brain is essentially a network of connections and these pathways can change. Neuroscience shows talk based therapies can facilitate positive changes to structures in the brain.” “At UQ we recently shifted the program core to include these applied brain based therapies and are currently the only university in Australia offering this approach,” explains Dr Rossouw. The Counselling program is also professionally accredited with both peak counselling bodies in Australia – PACFA and the ACA. While Dr Rossouw admits that the Master of Counselling at UQ is challenging, this has not put students off. “We have a huge international interest in the program,” he says. “Many prospective students come through the UN as they know the quality of the university and the program.”

FRANCESCA REDDINGTON Master of Counselling PROFESSIONAL MEMBERSHIP The program is accredited by both major Australian professional counselling associations: PACFA (Psychotherapist and Counsellor Federation of Australia) and ACA (Australian Counselling Association). As such, the program upholds counselling practices that are in accord with professional codes of ethics and standards of practice of the professional associations in Australia.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS A Bachelor degree with demonstrated prior learning in the social and behavioural sciences (eg, social work, psychology, social welfare, behavioural studies, human services, nursing, therapies, medicine, or related fields).

Returning to study as a mature student could not have worked out better for Francesca Reddington. “I graduated with a BA in 2001, I travelled, had children and then decided to go back to do my master degree. I chose Counselling because it makes a difference in people’s lives. “The program at UQ appealed because of the emphasis on grief and loss which is something everyone will experience in their life and it is not an area covered by all programs, she explains. Francesca won a place on the UQ Summer Research Program last year and worked on a research project with Dr Pieter Rossouw. “It was a great experience and I have been able to continue working on it on a casual basis,” she says. This year Francesca will also undertake a placement as part of her program “It’s an opportunity to develop professional networks. A lot of students end up working with the organisations they have done their placements in,” she says.

LOTUS DESFOURS Master of Development Practice An opportunity to be part of a research team working in the Solomon Islands gave Lotus DesFours the chance to develop skills and witness firsthand the way development projects are implemented on the ground. “I learned a great deal about the politics and challenges associated with sustainable development projects, witnessing some of the challenges and contradictions that I had learned so much about during the Masters Program. “The experience helped me to make connections between the theoretical concepts and practical realities of development interventions,” explains Lotus. As part of Lotus’ Masters in Development Practice (Advanced) she joined Dr Kristen Lyons and Dr Peter Walters from UQ’s School of Social Science on a research trip to a number of villages in the Western Province that grow teak in plantations. The purpose of the visit was to learn more about the challenges related to teak management and local participation in markets, as well as opportunities to integrate agro-forestry principles into current plantation management.

The practical application of skills that Masters students can acquire, combined with the knowledge of best practice and key conceptual debates, produces graduates who are primed to move straight into careers in their chosen fields.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Lotus worked as Dr Lyons’s assistant while also having the opportunity to conduct her own research that formed the foundation of her Master’s thesis. “Working alongside Dr Lyons and Dr Walters was very inspiring,” she says. “I am sure that my experience doing fieldwork in the Solomon Islands will help me to establish my career, and that my experience has helped me to understand the kinds of work I would like to do in the future. “I also think that these practical experiences are invaluable in terms of preparing students for the work force and I hope that being involved in this project will give me an advantage as I begin to seek work in the field.”

Practical experience is invaluable in terms of “preparing you for the work force. ”

Graduates of this program have opportunities for employment in organisations such as international development institutions (for example, AusAID or USAID); foreign policy sections of national governments; multilateral development agencies, regional development banks (ADB) and United Nations agencies; planning and management within local government; and NGOs working at local and international levels.

PROFESSOR KATHARINE GELBER Australian Research Council Future Fellow, School of Political Science and International Studies In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, and following other terrorist events since that time, Western governments have implemented or resurrected policies to counter terrorism, usually with broad parliamentary and public support. Yet many of these policies infringe on foundational human rights and freedoms. Professor Gelber is conducting a comparative investigation into the fate of one particular foundational human right – freedom of speech – within counter-terrorism policy since 9/11. The project will investigate the fate of free speech in the United Kingdom, the United States and Australia over the last decade. “This project demonstrates the ways in which public policy that impacts negatively on human rights can coincide across countries that actually have very different internal frameworks for protecting human rights.” The project aims to understand how counter terrorism policy can operate in tandem with human rights protection in future.

JAIME OLVERA CAREER OPPORTUNITIES Ultimately, the quality of teaching within the MGPP suite alongside the range of course options produces graduates that have the capacity to perform policymaking and governance roles within a wide variety of settings.

PROFESSOR JASON MATTINGLEY Professor of Cognitive Neuroscience and ARC Laureate Fellow, School of Psychology It is widely assumed that the human brain is wired up early in development, and that it remains fixed and unchangeable in adulthood. Recent studies of neural plasticity, however, have revealed that the brain constantly changes itself throughout the lifespan. Professor Jason Mattingley, from the School of Psychology and UQ’s Queensland Brain Institute, is working to understand brain plasticity, in health and disease. His research investigates how cognitive factors, such as attention, can alter brain plasticity in healthy adult volunteers, and also in patients with brain damage due to cerebral stroke. “When we learn, even as adults, connections between nerve cells are strengthened in the brain. Likewise, after injury, the brain can create new pathways to compensate for lost functions”, Professor Mattingley said. Professor Mattingley’s research team uses a variety of behavioural and brain imaging techniques to understand how the brain changes itself.

PLACEMENT The program requires students to undertake either 2 lab rotations for the #16 unit program or 3 lab rotations for the #24 unit program. Each rotation is a supervised 300 hours laboratory experience designed to provide a comprehensive and complementary introduction to Neuroscience research experience.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS A 3 year BSc or equivalent degree for the 24 unit program, a 4 year BSc with honours I or IIA or equivalent degree for the 16 unit program, including BPsySc, BAppSc, BBiomedSc in a relevant filed with a GPA of 5.5 (on a 7-point scale). Medical Science degrees will also be considered.

“Using functional magnetic resonance imaging, or fMRI, we can pinpoint changes in brain activity as people encode new information or practise a new task. Likewise, using scalp-recorded electroencephalography, or EEG, we can track functional networks of communication throughout the brain. All these sophisticated tools are available here at UQ”, Professor Mattingley said. Professor Mattingley’s team is particularly interested in harnessing normal mechanisms of plasticity to assist people with brain damage due to injury or disease. They also use a new technique called transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) to induce a temporary and reversible form of brain plasticity in healthy adult volunteers. “The cellular mechanisms underlying neural plasticity are quite well understood. But we don’t really know how psychological factors such as mood, and cognitive factors like attention, impact on brain plasticity”, he said.

The ultimate goal is to understand how the brain “gives rise to complex behaviour, and how cognitive processes can themselves alter brain structure and function.

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR KATE SOFRONOFF Clinic Director, School of Psychology Associate Professor Kate Sofronoff did not set out with the intention of becoming a clinical psychologist. Returning to university as a mature student she found herself moving in that direction and after a placement in the Developmental Unit at the Mater Hospital, she discovered a fascination for childhood developmental disorders. “I work mainly in the area of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) with a focus on evaluating programs for children and families and creating an evidence base for families to refer to. “There is no cure for Autism but there are many things we can do to make life better,” she explains. Dr Sofronoff has worked on many research projects aimed at developing strategies for children with Asperger syndrome or HF/ASD and their families, including tackling anxiety issues, anger management and emotional and social understanding. Her current research work is in the area of managing depression with adolescents.

MASTER OF CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY Clinical psychologists promote optimal levels of psychological functioning to decrease levels of psychological distress. They have expertise in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of a broad range of emotional and behavioural problems including anxiety, depression, stress, substance addiction and abuse, adjustment to physical illness, relationship difficulties and learning disabilities. The UQ Clinical Psychology program provides knowledge and professional skills in the area of clinical psychology through a combination of coursework, supervised practice, and research. Students gain a foundation in the scientific bases and practice of clinical psychology. The training in clinical practice employs evidence-based best practice models in health and mental health settings. We have strong links with community organisations, public and private sector hospitals, as well as a strong and vibrant network of independent practitioners meaning our students have access to a wide range of exciting clinical training opportunities and experienced supervisors. Our academic staff are actively engaged in clinical practice as

“The University of Queensland is leading the way internationally in this work. The evaluation of the Exploring Feelings anxiety program which was published in 2005 was the first program of this type and started the ball rolling.” Another of the projects that Dr Sofronoff is involved with is a population level evaluation of the Stepping Stones Triple P program for parents of a child with a developmental disability. “We find that children achieve better outcomes in all sorts of areas if we can involve and train their parents in effective strategies to manage emotional and behavioural problems,” she says. Dr Sofronoff concedes that children, adolescents and adults with ASD were underserved in the past but says programs and support will become more widely available. She is hopeful that the upcoming Cooperative Research Centre Grant (CRC) of $31 million from the Federal Government will allow for program development and research across the lifespan of Australians Living with ASD. The CRC will be based at The University of Queensland and Dr Sofronoff’s role will be as a project leader developing and evaluating social and emotional programs for school children, adolescents and adults.

Finding the strengths in each individual is central to “what we do, there are differences and we all need to learn to work to make those differences positive attributes.

“In the social realm this work is primarily focused on the dynamics of stereotyping, prejudice as well as oppression and resistance; clinically, I am working with colleagues to look at the role that social support and control play in stress and depression; organisationally I am particularly interested in processes of leadership and creativity,” he explains. One of Professor Haslam’s current projects involves working to develop and deliver a Leadership and Identity Development program for Allied Health Professionals in Queensland. Professor Haslam says the project involves adapting a model of social identity development that he and colleagues have been working on for the last decade for use in a leadership context. “We are attempting to harness organisational capital by promoting practices that involve leaders working with team members to create, advance, represent and embed a sense of shared identity.” This project tests and develops a practical model of leadership training derived from the social identity approach to leadership outlined in his recent book The New Psychology of Leadership, co-authored with Professor Steve Reicher (St Andrews University Scotland) and Professor Michael Platow (ANU). The book argues that to succeed, leaders need to cultivate and promote an understanding of ‘us’ of which they themselves are representative. “I am really interested in work that seeks to translate theoretical understanding of core psychological processes into practical interventions,” says Professor Haslam. “We have done some exciting work of this form in the health sector (e.g., building social identity among care home residents as a means of improving their health and wellbeing), but there is an awful lot more to do – especially in the clinical and educational space.” Professor Haslam admits his research work is challenging.

If it’s easy, and everyone agrees with what you’re “doing and saying, then you’re probably doing it wrong. ”

ELIZABETH FLORENCE Graduate – Master of Social Work Studies Having the opportunity to undertake two vastly different field placements was an incredible learning experience. At the beginning of her Master’s Program in Social Work Studies, Elizabeth Florence said she would never work in a hospital. She is now a social worker on a medical ward in the Mater Adult Hospital. “Here I am now, absolutely loving it,” she says. “I work within a multidisciplinary treating team who collaboratively work with patients to support them and their families while in hospital and after they discharge. “The main social work skills I use everyday include: conducting psychosocial assesments and planning interventions, using various counseling skills and techniques, liaising with community agencies, making referrals to appropriate agencies, facilitating family meetings and working within a team environment,” she explains. Elizabeth graduated with a BA before gaining a place in the Master’s program and she says that one of the highlights of the program was being part of a cohort with such likeminded individuals.
