Research studies currently seeking participants:

International study of pro/antisocial behaviour in young adults (HC180527)

Research Team: Dr Emma Barrett, Associate Professor Nickie Newton, Dr Lexine Stapinski, Miss Siobhan Lawler and Miss Tuyet-Ngan Doan
Target Group: Young Australians aged 18-20 years old
Project Contact: Dr Emma Barrett (
This research study aims to explore factors that are associated with prosocial and antisocial behaviour during early adulthood. The online survey will ask you for some general demographic information, sociodemographic information, information about your time at school, your experiences with drugs and alcohol, problems with police, your friendship network and important life events. It will also ask you about adverse childhood experiences, deviant behaviours in the last year and in your lifetime, personality traits, coping strategies you use, and your prosocial attitudes.

We hope to use information we get from this research study to better understand factors associated with the development of prosocial and antisocial behaviour. 

This survey is completely voluntary, de-identified and confidential.
