The School of Psychology

The School of Psychology is one of six Schools in the Faculty of Health and Behavioural Sciences at the University of Queensland. The School is one of the most prestigious schools of psychology in Australia, and its strong reputation is built on excellence in both research and teaching. The School has thriving and dynamic research profiles in almost all areas of psychology, and is able to attract visitors from overseas and other institutions in Australia. It possesses good links, often through cross-appointed staff, with other schools in the University, thus creating opportunities for interdisciplinary collaborative research.

The Parenting and Family Support Centre (PFSC) was established in 1996 as a specialist family intervention research and training facility within the School of Psychology at The University of Queensland.

The PFSC's primary research and clinical activities revolve around its Triple P - Positive Parenting Program.
