Organisation: Telethon Kids Institute

Internship Period: Summer (November - December)

Location: Nedlands

Role Description

The intern will be joining the Early Neurodevelopment and Mental Health team at Telethon Kids Institute led by Dr Amy Finlay-Jones. The main project that the intern will be assisting with will be a review of the literature relating to how and for whom parenting programs promote better self-regulation outcomes for infants and children. It is anticipated that the intern will be able to learn how to conduct a review of the literature and report key findings. The intern may also be able to contribute to other projects in the infant mental health and child development setting where appropriate. This project will be well-suited to an intern who has an interest in the role of parenting in preventing childhood mental health problems, and provides an opportunity to be involved in team publications. The intern will work closely with other honours and Ph.D. level students, in addition to post-doctoral and senior staff at TKI.
