Prof

Henry Jackson

 

Professor Henry Jackson is a clinical psychologist who worked as a full-time public practice clinician for 13 years before entering academia in 1991. Henry and Professor Patrick McGorry from ORYGEN Research Centre developed the early intervention research paradigm which has led to a world-wide change in the way we think about intervening in young people with psychotic disorders and in youth mental health service delivery systems.

He studies the psychopathology of psychosis, mechanisms underlying positive psychotic symptoms, the development and the assessment of new psychological treatments for psychotic disorders, and factors affecting functional recovery and quality of life in psychotic patients. His second major research interest includes the structure of personality disorders, their relationship to social cognition, treatments for personality disorders - especially borderline personality disorder, and the influence of personality factors in physical health outcomes and quality of life. He collaborates with a number of colleagues within this School, with OYRGEN Research Centre, and in the past with the University of Padua. He has authored or co-authored 214 papers in refereed journals, 22 book chapters and co-edited three books. He has been a Chief Investigator on many grants including the large NHandMRC Program and Clinical Centre of Excellence Grants on early psychosis both of which were awarded to ORYGEN in 2004. He has supervised to completion 30 PhDs, 32 other higher degrees, and 41 Honours students. He serves on the boards of a number of journals. Henry was made a Fellow of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) in 1995, is the 2004 winner of the Distinguished Career Award presented by the Australian Association of Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy and is the 2005 winner of the APS Ian Matthew Campbell Prize in clinical psychology.
