This session for Board members will provide robust practical evidence from Professor Cross’ research on student wellbeing and learning, and the impact of bullying on individual students and the school community. Professor Cross will share the essentials of effective whole school approaches and rigorously tested school-based interventions which improve social and emotional wellbeing and minimise bullying. She will help build a deeper understanding of ways to identify and manage the inherent risks in these areas for schools.
Professor Cross’ early research included extensive school-based health promotion research. She has published on child health issues related to drug use, nutrition, road safety, smoking and bullying prevention. Professor Cross has worked tirelessly to improve the health of our young people through research and community programs, with a focus on transferring knowledge from research evidence into policy and practice and bridging the gap between university research and school and community programs.
A commitment to drawing the community’s attention to the importance of investing in actions to strengthen the health and resilience of children is at the core of Professor Cross’ work. She champions positive, whole-school approaches to children’s wellbeing.
