Dr Raphiphatthana completed her PhD in psychology in 2018.
Her research interests intersect between positive psychology and clinical psychology, particularly the use of strength-based interventions to enhance wellbeing and cultivate resilience.
Since the start of 2019, she has been working with the AIMhi team to evaluate strategies for implementing e-mental health approaches in organisations working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Her research aims to inform future implementation strategies to better support organisations in adopting e-mental health approaches as part of service delivery.
