Brigid Jordan

 

Brigid Jordan is Associate Professor of Paediatric Social Work (Infant and Family) at the Royal Children's Hospital. This position is a joint endeavour between The Royal Children's Hospital and the Department of Paediatrics at The University of Melbourne and was established with the supported of a grant from Australian Communities Foundation.

Associate Professor Jordan is also Team Leader of the Infant Mental Health Research Team at the Murdoch Children's Research Institute.

Brigid's research explores the relationship between early life stress – as a result of serious illness and hospital experience or significant family stress and social disadvantage – and the health and mental health of infants and young children and their families. This research has a strong focus on clinical and translational outcomes and includes intervention trials of novel clinical approaches in paediatric social work and infant mental health.

Brigid was involved with colleagues in establishing the Graduate Diploma and Masters courses in Infant Mental Health offered through the Department of Psychiatry at The University of Melbourne. Infant Mental Health courses are now offered through Mindful Centre for for Training and Research in Developmental Health.
