  • Volume 39 Issue 5 - Telehealth under the Better Access initiative
    • Abstract:
      It can be challenging for people living in rural and remote Australia to access Medicare-rebateable psychological services. While the psychology workforce is better represented in rural and remote Australia than many other mental health professions, we still struggle to meet the high level of need in these communities. In April 2017, in order to address this inequity, the Australian Government announced the introduction of psychological service delivery by videoconference (telehea!th) as part of the Better Access initiative.

    • Abstract: Bond, Nigel W; Cornish, Kim; Kent, Stephen; Meuter, Renata; Machin, Tony
      Recently, the Australian Psychological Society (APS) together with colleagues from around the country completed the Australian Indigenous Psychology Education Project (AIPEP). The project looked at ways of making the psychology curriculum at the tertiary level more Indigenous friendly and at increasing the numbers of Indigenous students at all levels. Following on from this project, the Heads of Department and Schools of Psychology Association (HODSPA) held a workshop in April 2017, at the University of Technology Sydney, to start implementing the ideas raised in the AIPEP.

  • Volume 39 Issue 5 - The contemporary face of addiction
    • Abstract: Berry, Matthew
      According to the most recent Australian National Drug Strategy Household Survey {NDSHS, 2016), the majority of Australians use mood-altering substances (e.g., alcohol, caffeine, medications), with most people staying with in socially and medically appropriate levels. Furthermore, both alcohol and illicit drug use are significantly falling for those under the age of 30 (risky alcohol use by under 19s has more than halved since 2001).

  • Volume 39 Issue 5 - lnPsych in review
    • Abstract: Mathews, Rebecca; Caiazzo, Livia
      In April we conducted an on line survey and a series of focus groups to gather feedback from members on what they would like to see in In Psych. The results have been incorporated into our plan to refresh the APS'sj!agship publication in 2018. The review of lnPsych will not only update the visual 'look and feel' of the magazine, but revise its structure and include a range of new columns and features. The primary goal of this review is to broaden the magazine's appeal for our diverse member-base, and explore topics of interest to researchers, practitioners and students alike. Another important focus of the redesign is to bring it into line with similar publications in the field of psychology. In doing so, In Psych will continue to grow and be a relevant, engaging 'voice' for psychology in Australia.

  • Volume 39 Issue 5 - Recognising clients who may pose a risk of violence
    • Abstract: Warren, Lisa J
      Psychologists are problem-solvers whose training enables them to provide informed responses to novel and complex situations in the lives of their clients. In some cases situations have arisen where clients form plans to harm other people. This occurred when 22-year-old James Stoneham formed the plan to murder his ex-girlfriend Adriana Donato while receiving mental health care that included psychological treatment. In the ensuing investigation into the death of Ms Donato, Coroner Peter White considered several elements of Mr Stoneham's treatment, including whether there was recognition of risk and the limits to confidentiality when the clients of psychologists become a risk to others {Coroners Court of Victoria, 2017). While the published decision was redacted, preventing the fullness of the Coroner's findings being available, the case has become a reminder for psychologists of the need to he alert to the risks clients can pose to the people around them.

  • Volume 39 Issue 5 - Apply what you know: Treating alcohol and drug
           problems
    • Abstract: Wilson, Hollie; Magor-Blatch, Lynne
      Substance-related and addictive disorders are common and psychologists are well-equipped to screen, assess and treat symptoms in their practice. Implementing effective supports and treatments into our daily practice can occur via a range of strategies. While specialist treatments exclusively targeting pathways toward reduction or abstinence are options, they are often not within the scope of many psychologists working in generalist or many mental health settings. Regardless of the perceived barriers for integrating such practice into our work, there are key principles and approaches that can be adopted to improve the outcomes for many clients. Embedding appropriate practice across our clinical work requires an openness to consider evidence-based approaches for all levels of substance-related and addictive disorders.

  • Volume 39 Issue 5 - The rich psychology of alcohol use disorder
    • Abstract: Gullo, Matthew; Connor, Jason; Kavanagh, David
      Alcohol use disorder (AUD) is a common presentation in clinical practice. Twelve month DSM-5 prevalence rates are similar to mood and anxiety disorders, at 17.6 per cent for men and 10.4 per cent for women (Grant et al., 2015). Mild disorders often remit in young adulthood, but more severe disorders can require long-term management. While many theories of AUD emphasise biological mechanisms for problematic drinking, which are important, there is a rich psychology involved that is sometimes overlooked. PsychologicaI treatments have strong evidence of efficacy (Connor, Haber, and Hall, 2016; Kavanagh, Connor, and Gullo, 2014), but diagnosis and treatment are delayed by an average of around 18 years after onset {Chapman, Slade, Hunt, and Teesson, 2015). This is due, in part, to the stigma attributed to the disorder both by practitioners and people needing treatment (Keyes et al., 2010). An approach that could reduce stigma places AUD along a continuum of symptoms and underlying psychological processes rather than as a dichotomous diagnostic category. In this article, we review some of the key psychological processes involved in alcohol use (and AUD). We then discuss how efficacious psychological treatments that target these processes can be affected by the everyday complexities encountered 'on the ground': comorbidity, cognitive impairment during withdrawal and ambivalence toward treatment.

  • Volume 39 Issue 5 - Ice and methamphetamine use: Clinical considerations
           and complications
    • Abstract: Brient, Lee
      For several years it has been widely reported in the media that Australia is in the grips of an ice epidemic. Within the past three years, the opinion of the average Australian household has come to rate methamphetamines as the drug of most concern (National Drug Strategy Household Survey (NDSHS), 2016). However, data shows that the number of methamphetamine users in Australia has not actually increased for at least the past 18 years.

  • Volume 39 Issue 5 - Problematic mobile phone use: An emerging
           disorder'
    • Abstract: Meagher, Brendan
      Mobile phones are becoming increasingly pervasive in our lives. So much so that for many people, it's almost impossible to imagine life without their phone. The potential for problematic mobile phone use (PMPU) has increased as mobile phones have evolved from a device devoted to communication between two people, to smartphones which provide internet access and allow for a wide range of on line activities. As PMPU looks set to become one of the biggest behavioural addiction challenges of the 21st century there is increasing concern about the impact of this technology upon the user's mental health. This article explores PMPU as a potential diagnostic entity and target for intervention in clinical practice and encourages psychologists to consider PMPU when assessing patients in their practice.

  • Volume 39 Issue 5 - Problem gambling and the internet
    • Abstract: Gainsbury, Sally
      One of the most significant changes to the gambling environment in the past 15 years has been the increased availability of internet gambling. Internet gambling is any gambling conducted remotely via the internet and includes gambling through computers and laptops, smartphones, tablets, and even gaming consoles, smart watches and virtual-reality headsets. This is the fastest growing mode of gambling and is changing the way that gamblers engage with different forms of gambling. Due to the high level of accessibility, immersive interface and ease at which money can be spent, concerns have been expressed that internet gambling may increase rates of disordered gambling.

  • Volume 39 Issue 5 - Psychologists and smoking cessation: Reducing the
           burden of smoking
    • Abstract: Baird, Donita; Segan, Catherine; Borland, Ron; Baker, Amanda; Bowman, Jenny
      Psychologists are likely to see clients who are addicted to tobacco smoking. In Australia, 2.4 million people regularly smoke (A IHW, 2016). Life expectancy for smokers is at least 10 years shorter than for nonsmokers (Prabhat et al., 2013) and up to 20 years shorter for those with a severe mental illness (Callaghan et al., 2014). Many people overcome substance use disorders, only to die from a tobacco-related illness (Mendelsohn and Wodak, 2016). Stopping smoking reduces mortality risk and has numerous other health benefits.

      Environmental disasters appear to be on the increase both in terms of frequency and severity. Hurricane Harvey adversely affected approximately 30 per cent of the USA city of Houston, wit h an estimated 80 per cent of properties designated uninsured and a project ed damage bill of $180 billion. Hurricane Irma, which has recently decimated a number of Caribbean Islands and some of Florida, was recorded as the most powerful storm on record, affecting approximately 37 million people. At the same time, devastating floods have hit Bangladesh and India (killing an estimated 2,000 people) and numerous other adverse weather events have occurred.

    • Abstract: Miller, Mel
      What is the main characteristic that you believe all leaders should possess and why'

      I think it is generosity. In an organisational context, the job of the leader is to steward the organisation's resources in stakeholder or shareholder interests. In public sector and private sector roles, my business partner and I have a I ways tried to stick to a principle of 'doing good to do well'. Being deeply concerned for the health and wellbeing of your workforce pays off literally and metaphorically. When I think about leadership, I am reminded of the research out of the UK which found when you move away from the leadership research that was largely done on male corporate America (which resulted in the charismatic-hero-leader stereotype), and look at studies done with more gender-balanced samples in industries like healthcare, the characteristic of the effective leader turns out to be 'a deep concern for others'.

      What is the main characteristic that you believe all leaders should possess and why'

      As a leader, your personal values are your guiding principles. Leaders need to be true to who they are and align their vision with that of the organisation in which they work. Personally, I have always valued the characteristics of authenticity and growth. Valuing authenticity has allowed me to strive for genuine, productive and connected relationships in the pursuit of excellence. Valuing growth has allowed me to be creative and reflective, and to nurture a culture that fosters a growth mindset. Growth builds on investing in strengths and al lows for a focus on learning and development. A growth mind set develops people to be resilient through pursing the types of challenges that can lead to both learning and failure, and to thrive despite day-to-day challenges.

      The characteristic most useful in leadership positions is to be able to work with the leadership team to develop an agreed strategic direction. Without the commitment of the other leaders, the best-developed strategic plan is unlikely to be successful. In various positions I learned that I could achieve a certain amount of progress by my own efforts but if I could facilitate the performance of my senior staff, our progress was multiplied many fold.

      What is the main characteristic that you believe all leaders should possess and why'

      While emotional intelligence as a construct has varying levels of empirical support, I believe the capability of individuals to recognise their own and other people's emotions is a necessary ability for any effective leader. The ability to understand your team and their motivating factors for work, and to be able to work to their strengths, produces an invested team that is productive and engaged in collective outcomes. I believe by connecting organisational goals to people's personal values, a team comes to identify strongly with the organisation, the mission and each other.

      It is sometimes said that leadership is one of the most observed and least understood phenomena on earth and, I would add, too often conceived as an individual rather than a socially constructed idea. During my time in politics, I became convinced that if our political institutions are to approach optimal condition, then good political leadership is essential. What constitutes such leadership is, of course, the subject of continuing debate and I would be the first to acknowledge that quality leadership is notoriously difficult to deliver.

    • Abstract: Frankcom, Kaye
      The APS has a longstanding relationship and collaboration with the New Zealand Psychological Society (NZPS). Like the APS, the NZPS is relatively young and will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2018. Professional psychology in New Zealand faces both similar and different issues and challenges to Australian psychology. These issues include professional competence, ethical practice and cultural safety working in a diverse country. Good resource books, written by local experts to guide practitioners tend to be scarce. The third edition of 'Professional Practice of Psychology in Aotearoa New Zealand' is a valuable resource for psychologists on both sides of the Tasman. This article provides a brief review of this book and highlights some of the parallels that exist for psychology in Australia.

      It all seems innocent enough: put a few people in a 'Big Brother house', keep the TV cameras running and see what happens. Or film people going on a first date, or getting 'married at first sight' in a program described by its producers as 'a groundbreaking social experiment'. Hey - why not get couples to meet in a beach hideaway somewhere, have them naked from the start, and see where that leads' (Sorry, the Swedes have already done that.) Better still, why not get them to undress each other as soon as they meet, and then get straight into bed' That's also been done: originating in Italy, then in the UK and now here, Undressed is a program in which a pair of strangers meet, undress each other down to their underwear, sit or lie on a bed and respond to questions or instructions that appear on a screen, designed to accelerate the getting-to-know-you process. After 30 minutes, they are asked whether they would like to spend more time together. Naturally, the producers describe this as 'a social experiment'.

  • Volume 39 Issue 4 - The five essentials of leadership
    • Abstract: Power, Paul G
      I once wrote, "individuals respond to the organisation in terms of their perceptions of it, the meaning it has for them, the feelings it evokes, the ways in which it is stressful or supporting. It is these perceptions which are the immediate influence on their behaviour and the immediate source of their motivation for role performance" (Power, 1979). This was not a particularly new observation at the time, as it was based on the seminal work of Lewin, Lippitt and White (1939) and later research by Litwin and Stringer (1968). Yet many leaders have still not recognised the importance of this characteristic of the organisations they lead. Consequently, they also remain unaware that these collective perceptions of the organisation, known as 'organisational climate; are largely created by their own behaviour. Through the leadership styles (e.g., Boyatzis and McKee, 2005) or leadership practices (Stringer, 2002) they demonstrate (or fail to demonstrate), leaders create the environment in which their staff will be motivated to provide discretionary effort. At the other extreme, leaders may create an organisational climate in which staff become de motivated, discouraged and do the bare minimum or even engage in counterproductive behaviour.

      In the years since writing those words, I have had the opportunity to observe leaders from a broad range of organisations in many different countries going about their business. I have seen many leaders participate in well-designed and properly structured assessment centres, spent time with some of them as they took part in a leadership development workshop, and coached a large number on a one-to-one basis for periods of up to three years. These experiences have given me insight into what makes some leaders successful, while others flounder or struggle to perform in the role. In a nutshell, I believe there are five essential characteristics that form the basis of successful leadership: self-image, self-control, socialised power, sustained dialogue and strategic intent.

  • Volume 39 Issue 4 - The ethical reality for psychologists
    • Abstract: Kinsella, Simon
      When most of us think about reality TV, we think of it as a relatively new phenomenon. I must admit, without giving too much thought, my first response would be that it began with shows like Big Brother. But thinking back to my early childhood, it was there in the form of Candid Camera which began in 1948 (before my time, but still on re-runs when I was in primary school), Amateur Hour (also before my time) and Young Talent Time.

      There's no doubt that there has been a huge boom in the number and diversity of reality TV shows in the past 20 years. At the same time, the internet and social media have created new ways for us to interact with reality TV and its participants. Along with that growth, there has also been an increased focus on the duty-of-care to participants. Psychologists have become an integral part of protecting the wellbeing of people who take part in these programs.

    • Abstract: Elliott, Barry
      Consumer psychologists are involved in the marketplace. They assist commercial clients regarding how best to persuade consumers to do what their client would want them to do, namely, to choose and buy their client's product or service over competing ones. To achieve this end, the consumer psychologist sets out to understand what consumers want in order to assist clients to develop offers that are consistent with these desires. This can involve assisting clients to identify and understand where their product/service fits into the lives of existing and potential customers, and identifying customers' perspective of competitive offerings.

      Consumer psychologists rely heavily on collecting and analysing qualitative data backed up by quantitative surveys or experiments. In so doing, consumer psychologists use marketing's theory of persuasion - make what the customer wants to buy at a prices/he is willing to pay The behaviour change requested is minimal: 'carry-on ' or 'modify' and 'choose ours' because it better suits your wants and needs versus the competitors. In marketing this is known as the marketing concept or customer orientation.

  • Volume 39 Issue 2 - Projecting the future impact of advanced technologies:
           Will a robot take my job'
    • Abstract: Innes, Mike; Morrison, Ben
      Recent years have seen an upsurge of concern in the technical and popular press about the impact of automation upon employment in western societies. Once the concerns about t he development of artificial intelligence were concentrated within the realms of computer science and philosophy, debating the extent to which a robot could be conceived to have self-awareness and consciousness. Those concerns have migrated to the social and business pages where the in creasing advances of automation of jobs and skills are being recognised. The trend has been to point to the downsides of automation and the rise of artificial intelligence. This has moved further from a concern about how lower skilled jobs, such as in mass production of cars and white goods, can be supplemented by robots to a perception that the skills of many profess ions are in line for replacement. This leads in turn to contemplating the impact of automation on the profession of psychology.

  • Volume 39 Issue 2 - APS Disaster Response Network psychologists help in
           the field following the January Bourke St incident in Melbourne
    • Abstract: Burke, Susie
      In January a number of APS Disaster Response Network (DRN) psychologists became a part of the Australian Red Cross (ARC) volunteer workforce when they responded to our call for members to fulfil a newly created role at the ARC for a 'field psychologist'. Field psychologists accompany ARC workers into the field following a disaster in order to provide support to the workers if needed. The 'field' in this instance was the area around Bourke St in Melbourne's CBD following an incident on January 20 when a man on a violent spree deli berately drove his car into pedestrians. He killed six people, hospitalised 37, injured many more and left hundreds of people shocked, terrified and grieving.

           for patients with cognitive impairment
    • Abstract: Bain, Peggy
      Psychologists working in public health settings would be familiar with hospitals needing to meet a number of National Safety and Quality Health Service (NSQHS) Standards to achieve accreditation. These Standards were developed by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (the Commission) to drive the implementation of safety and quality systems and improve the quality of health care in Australia. In 2011, Health Ministers endorsed the Standards and a national accreditation scheme providing a nationally consistent statement regarding the level of care consumers can expect from hospitals and other health service organisations.

      This is t he final in a series of articles looking at contracting arrangements within psychology practice settings. Fair Work Australia is increasingly concerned about how contract s are implemented across various industries in the context of sufficiently distinguishing between an independent contractor and an employee arrangement.

    • Abstract: Ralph, Stephen
      The damage done to the unborn child by the mother's consumption of alcohol during pregnancy has been long known. In 1725 the Royal College of Physicians of London referred to the consumption of alcohol as "too often the cause of weak, feeble and distempered children ." Since about 1973 the deleterious effects of prenatal alcohol exposure on the unborn child have come to be known as fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD).

  • Volume 39 Issue 2 - Adults with autism: What do we know and what are the
           implications for psychology'
    • Abstract: Richdale, Amanda
      Adulthood has been a neglected area of research into autism spectrum disorder (autism) but is currently experiencing an increase in interest. Recent UK data estimate the prevalence of autism in adults at 1.1 per cent (Brugha et al., 2016). In early data from the Autism CRC Australian Lon gitudinal Study of School Leavers with Autism aged 15 to 25 years, half of participants self-reported diagnosis at nine years of age or older. The Autism CRC Australian Longitudinal Study of Adults with Autism (ALSAA; age 25+ years) found that 94 per cent of self-reporting individuals received an autism diagnosis at 10 years or older. Thus, many adolescents and adults with autism may not be identified until they come to the psychologist's attention when they present with other psychological problems.

  • Volume 39 Issue 2 - Multidisciplinary management of attention deficit
           hyperactivity disorder in adults
    • Abstract: May, Tamara; Aizenstros, Joel
      Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) was until recently thought to be a condition of childhood which remitted before adulthood. Characterised by difficulties sustaining attention, overactivity and problems with impulse control, the condition affects around five per cent of children. There is now an established body of research showing that in at least half of ADHD cases, symptoms continue to pose clinically significant difficulties into adulthood. The DSM-5, released in 2013, now provides adult-specific criteria, including a reduced symptom count for adults compared with children (five rather than six symptoms in each criteria) (American Psychiatric Association, 2013).

  • Volume 39 Issue 2 - Working with individuals with neurodevelopmental
           disorders in an adult custodial environment
    • Abstract: Hsieh, Ming-Yun
      It is recognised that people with neurodevelopmental disorders (e.g., intellectual disability NULL, autism spectrum disorder [ASD] and communication disorders) are over-represented in Juvenile and adult criminal justice systems. The relationship between neurodevelopmental disorders and offending behaviour is likely to be complex, requiring a holistic case conceptualisation of each individual's psychosocial background, criminogenic needs (dynamic risk factors for reoffending) and cognitive-linguistic abilities. People with neurodevelopmental disorders often have difficulty with verbal skills, especially pragmatics (i.e., the social, non-verbal and behavioural aspects of language). Good verba l abilities are importantfor the development of emotional and behavioural regulation skills. It is perhaps not surprising therefore, that people with neurodevelopmentaI disorders often lack the inner speech to manage impulsive behaviour. They may also have difficulty accurately reading or responding to social situations, thus increasing their risk of engaging in problematic, at times antisocial, behaviours (LaVigne and Van Rybroek, 2011).

  • Volume 39 Issue 2 - Improving access to focused psychological
           interventions for people with intellectual disability
    • Abstract: Hagiliassis, Nick; Di Marco, Mark
      People with disability represent a diverse population. The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (The United Nations, 2006) defines persons with disabilities as having long-term physical, mental, intellectual or sensory impairments which in interaction with various barriers may hinder their full and effective participation in society on an equal basis with others. This article focuses on people with intellectual disability (10) primarily, a developmental disorder affecting about three per cent of the population. The prevalence rates of mental health problems are higher for people with an 10 (dual disability) than for the general population, suggesting that they are a particularly vulnerable group.

    • Abstract: von Treuer, Kathryn; McMahon, Rosie
      The Australian Psychological Society has completed a considerable review of its Board structure, so a review of the Board function, and of Board member roles and responsibilities is timely. Moreover, Board effectiveness relies heavily on the role clarity and ethical behaviour of its members. The negative impact of poor boardroom behaviour can be far-reaching across multiple stakeholders and services, including the Board itself and the members it serves.

    • Abstract: Sampson, Emma
      Mental health starts in our families, in our schools and workplaces, in our playgrounds and parks, and in the air we breathe and water we drink. The more psychologists understand and take account of these social determinants of all aspects of health, the more opportunities we will have and the better equipped we will be to help people optimise their mental health and wellbeing.
