Research is one of CCI’s four core areas of business and is integral to us delivering effective, evidence-based treatments to people with mental disorders at our clinic in Perth, Western Australia. Research also guides the training we deliver to mental health professionals, and helps us develop resources for professionals, consumers and carers that we make available on our website.
We have now introduced a new section to our website that provides brief overviews and links to recent research publications and presentations involving CCI staff. Each review gives a brief snapshot of why we completed a study and how, as well as what we found, and how this knowledge can and will be used at our service in the future (or by other professionals).
Recent research updates have covered topics relating to bipolar disorder, eating disorders, and transdiagnostic factors such as intolerance of uncertainty. For example, one study developed a self-report measure of how confident people with bipolar disorder feel about managing their symptoms, whereas another study tested the effectiveness of a brief group intervention for friends and family members of people with an eating disorder.
CCI's clinical research team have published over 200 peer-reviewed journal articles and books about mental disorders and their treatment. If you’re keen to delve further into this research, you can use Google Scholar to view our most recent and full list of publications.
