SENIOR RESEARCH ASSISTANT, PhD CANDIDATE
Michael Norwood is a senior research Assistant, with research expertise in effective strategies to support youth with developmental and behavioural difficulties. His PhD is focused on how nature might be employed to effect the behavioural, cognitive and academic outcomes on young people with behavioural issues. Specifically, how changing the environment a young person learns and spends time in might affect positive change in their development. Michaels previous research work has also maintained a focus on young people and problem behaviour looking at links between conduct disorder, callous-unemotional traits and alexithymia. He has also been the senior researcher on the Farming 4 Care project, organising and researching equine programs for disenfranchised youth.
