Research interests

Brooke is a practicing clinical psychologist with research interests within adult mental health, particularly the use of technology (eHealth) to improve mental health and wellbeing. Investigation of stepped care models and the factors that contribute to participant attrition and engagement with online programs, preference and predictors for e-mental health service (this may include factors such as perceived stigma, stoicism, emotion regulation and personality) and program evaluation are of particular interest. Other interests lie within the areas of individual differences (temperament and personality), anxiety, trauma, Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and emotion regulation.

Examples of recently supervised projects:

  • Associations between attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and DSM-5 multidimensional personality domains
  • Associations between social anxiety and DSM-5 multidimensional personality domains
  • Associations between the factors of meta-mood experience and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Relationships between affect lability and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Associations between facets of impulsivity and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder factors
  • The buffering effect of trait emotional self-efficacy on the association between perceived control of internal states and trait anxiety
  • Trait emotional self-efficacy and experience of anxiety symptoms amongst females
