Article
Full-text available
It is likely that young people who are both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and LGBTQA+ would be at increased risk for poor mental health outcomes due to the layered impacts of discrimination they experience; however, there is very little empirical evidence focused on the mental health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LG...
Article
The lived experience of being LGBT+ and an Aboriginal person was a major focus of the mixed methods Breaking the Silence research project led by Aboriginal LGBT+ researchers. Aboriginal LGBT+ participants were invited to respond to a survey that canvassed how they were included and accepted within their own families, on social media, dating apps an...
Article
Successive generations of First Nation scholars have critiqued the ongoing institutional and disciplinary complicity of Higher Education to support settler colonialism. These critiques extend to include Cultural Studies, despite the field’s inter (anti)disciplinary efforts to expose power and inequality in social relations, dominant institutions, p...
Article
Full-text available
Previous studies on the impacts of racism on adolescent development have largely overlooked Indigenous youth. We conducted a scoping review of the empirical literature on racism against Indigenous adolescents to determine the nature and scope of this research and to establish associations with developmental outcomes. Our literature search resulted...
Article
A central question for the exploratory Aboriginal and LGBTQ+ researcher led project ‘Breaking the Silence: Being Indigenous and identifying LGBTQ+’ (Breaking the Silence) is how provision of genuinely inclusive service responses for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people identifying as LGBTQ+ can be developed. This article presents the qualit...

This report explains how and why Indigenous men engage and succeed in higher education.
Article
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTIQ+ peoples face an elevated risk for poor health and social-emotional wellbeing, suggesting that this patient group are likely to attend health and community services. However, the current practices of those who deliver care to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander LGBTIQ+ peoples are unknown. Utilising mi...
Article
Full-text available
Mobile technologies are omnipresent across adolescent life and require better characterization of their potential benefits. Adolescents also experience high rates of daily stress so that investigating youths’ technology use in relation to their stress response is of practical importance. We employed experience sampling data from a subset of 115 you...
Article
Full-text available
Concerns have been raised that smartphones may harm children and families. Arguably, risk-driven discourses are not always evidence-based. This is a problem, because blanket assumptions of risk drowns out nuanced empirical questions of what constitutes “good” parenting when it comes to smartphone use, and for whom. Here we outline three logical mis...
Article
University Indigenous Education Units (IEU) support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students’ success, via providing academic, social, and cultural support and a sense of community on campus. As a result of the social distancing guidelines imposed during the COVID-19 pandemic, however, Australian universities have transitioned to online learn...
Article
Full-text available
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women are increasingly completing university at rates higher than their male counterparts. However, the reasons for this trend, including factors that support Indigenous women’s determination to persist with university study, remain undocumented in the literature. We applied a strengths-based approach to determ...
Article
While a significant minority cohort, Australian Aboriginal women are increasingly attending university. However, their experiences remain largely undocumented in the literature. This study focused on the experience of eight female Aboriginal students who completed an Indigenous-only bridging course where they watched the film, Educating Rita, about...
Article
There has been scant exploration of the social and emotional wellbeing (SEWB) of young Indigenous populations that identify as LGBTQA+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Asexual +). Given the vulnerability of this cohort living in Western settler colonial societies, wider investigation is called for to respond to their needs,...
Article
Full-text available
Background: Concerns have been raised regarding the potential negative impacts of parents' smartphone use on the parent-child relationship. A scoping literature review indicated inconsistent effects, arguably attributable to different conceptualizations of parent phone use and conflation of phone use with technological interference. Methods: Bas...
Article
Full-text available
The fact that youth widely engage with the online space in order to improve their emotional health has been lost amongst the debate surrounding adolescents' technology use and associated well-being. Two studies focused on adolescents’ use of technology to cope with stressors in daily life. Focus groups (Study 1; n = 16) indicated that youth readily...
Article
Full-text available
Scholars have long‐called for researchers to treat coping as a process that is measured over an arc of time. Ambulatory assessment (AA) offers an appealing tool for capturing the dynamic process of adolescent coping. However, challenges in capturing the coping process are not altogether circumvented with AA designs. We conducted a scoping review of...
Article
Full-text available
Although there have been repeated calls for empirical evaluations focused on if and how the activities of Indigenous Education Units contribute to Indigenous student success at university, data demonstrating the outcomes of these activities remain scarce. As a first step in addressing this gap, a case study of the Kulbardi Aboriginal Centre is pres...
Article
Full-text available
Numerous theories assert that youth with externalizing symptomatology experience intensified emotion reactivity to stressful events; yet scant empirical research has assessed this notion. Using in-vivo data collected via experience sampling methodology, we assessed whether externalizing symptoms conditioned adolescents’ emotion reactivity to daily...
Conference Paper
Expressive suppression and cognitive reappraisal represent two prominent emotion regulation styles. Whereas suppression represents the tendency to hide displays of one’s internal emotional state, regardless of context, reappraisal involves reformulating emotion-eliciting stimuli in a more positive light (Gross & John, 2003). Though reappraisal is g...
Article
Full-text available
Individuals are far more likely to engage in antisocial behaviour during adolescence than any other period of their life. This paper presents selected results from two studies which used secondary data analysis to provide a theoretically informed picture of youths' decision-making process in relation to delinquency. Study 1 focused on changes in ad...
Chapter
Full-text available
This chapter briefly outlines some of the contextual elements that are both risk factors for psychopathology in childhood and adolescence and may represent hindrances to adolescents' beneficial choices. Next, it discusses how adolescents with psychopathology, and externalizing in particular, may be especially ill-equipped for decision making both i...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This high-resolution study maps emotion dynamics and contexts in relation to symptoms of psychopathology. More specifically, the study illustrates how at-risk youth high in externalizing symptoms show exacerbated emotion responses to day to day stressors. Notably, these youth are also uniquely buffered against emotion reactivity to stress when in t...
Article
Full-text available
Previous Experience Sampling Method (ESM) studies demonstrate that adolescents’ daily emotional states are heavily influenced by their immediate social context. However, despite adolescence being a risk period for exposure to daily stressors, research has yet to examine the influence of peers on adolescents’ emotional responses to stressors encount...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Adolescence is a time of increased externalizing in the form of delinquency, aggression and other antisocial behaviours. Theoretically, adolescents who engage in these behaviours are also highly emotionally reactive, especially in response to stressors. However, this idea has been under-studied to date. We used Experience Sampling Methodology to ex...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The current study examined mood and internet use in 109 young people (age M = 14.7yrs; 69% female) using Experience Sampling Methodology (ESM) over a 7-day period. Participants were classified as experiencing low or high social anxiety (LSA and HSA) and their mood, internet frequency, and online coping were compared. Young people high in social anx...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Adolescents’ resilience has been linked with retrospective reports of well-being (e.g. life satisfaction; Park, 2004), although research is yet to examine how resilience is associated with adolescents’ daily experiences of emotional well-being. According to the Broaden and Build Theory of Positive Emotions (BBT; Fredrickson, 2001) resilient individ...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Emotional dysregulation and reward-bias are well-established risk-factors associated with adolescents’ dangerous behaviour but assumptions of stability and homogeneity have limited current understanding. Thisl study examines reward-bias in conjunction with daily variations in emotion and risk behaviour using ESM data. Results indicate reward-biased...
