A taste for research

Dr Mary-Claire Hanlon has gained a wealth of experience in psychology, mental health and social science research throughout her undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. She’s now looking to use her skills to foster emerging clinical researchers – and work to ensure that mental health research findings get to where they need to be.

“Before going into science and education I'd actually worked in commercial enterprise and ran my own business for a little while, too.

“A big part of that was continuing professional development, including human anatomy and physiology, and business management – but there was a semester where there were no courses available. I missed learning.

“So I signed up to do a science degree.”

Throughout her undergraduate studies, Mary-Claire worked with a number of different research teams, including what is now known as the Hunter Research Foundation Centre and the UON School of Psychology.

“That’s when I got a taste for the absolute pleasure of doing research.”

Sensorimotor gating in ADHD

Mary-Claire stayed on board with the School of Psychology team to conduct her honours project, which was supervised by Associate Professor Frini Karayanidis and Professor Ulli Schall, from the School of Medicine and Public Health.

For her Honours study, she examined sensorimotor gating in young adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Sensorimotor gating is the mind’s way of filtering out unnecessary and potentially disruptive environmental stimuli. Unsurprisingly, it is often disrupted in individuals with neuropsychiatric conditions characterised by poor impulse control, such as ADHD.

“That was one of the first times that in the School of Psychology that a student studied a clinical group.

“It was a great opportunity and from there I just kept on working with Ulli.”

Seduced by schizophrenia

Schizophrenia and psychosis had first been brought to Mary-Claire’s attention a little earlier, when she heard Emeritus Professor Patricia Michie give an impassioned lecture on the psychopathology of schizophrenia.

“I sat there and thought, I could spend the rest of my life studying schizophrenia, and hopefully contributing.

“It’s such a heterogeneous disorder.

“It just blows me away that you can have identical twins who share so much, but not 100% concordance with schizophrenia presentation.”

Mary-Claire went on to do her PhD under the supervision of Ulli and Macquarie University’s Associate Professor Robyn Langdon. Her doctorate focussed on the differences between the ways people with and without schizophrenia interpret sounds.

“It was a new theory, so I designed my own project - it takes guts to take on a student with their own ideas.”

Fostering young researchers

Mary-Claire has taken inspiration from her generous and mindful supervisors in the way she now mentors her own students.

“You’ve got to allow them to be creative and take ownership of their own story while still giving them the tools they need to become independent but collaborative, successful scientists.”

“I really like the coming together of minds with an idea - letting other people contribute their own part of the story, so that it becomes so much more than what it was with just me alone.”

Community management engagement

Mary-Claire’s current research focuses on the translation of findings from the Survey of High Impact Psychosis (SHIP) into practice such that they can benefit people in the community.

SHIP was funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing and supported by SANE Australia. It revealed how Australians living with psychosis cope with their day to day challenges – and gives us clues into the types of resources which would be of most benefit to those in need.

“What we didn't do with SHIP was ask the community management organisations (CMOs) and the mental health services how they go about doing their jobs.

“What are their aims, what are their resources, what do they think their clients need, how do they go about providing it and how do they evaluate it?

“So what I'm seeking to do is engage with these services.”

Mary-Claire is helping CMOs ensure they are providing their clients with the right kind of interventions, and that they have all the resources necessary to inform evidence based practices, in a way that fits their own ethos.

“This all fits really nicely into the National and State Mental Health Commissions from 2015, in that we are recognising that community management is part of the solution for people with a psychotic illness.

“With the outcomes from SHIP, we can also help CMOs with their funding applications - we can use the health economics results to justify services from a financial perspective, as well the actual results. This then helps CMOs provide the services their clients report needing too.

“We’ve got the data – we just need to make it available to the right people.”

Career Summary

Biography

Honours, Masters and PhD projects are listed in OPPORTUNITIES. International PhD candidates should please ensure you have Honours Class 1. The close for scholarship applications is 31st August. I'm interested in psychosis, holistic community mental health, implementation science, and health economics.

I am Local Custodian for HNE & Orange for the Survey of High Impact Psychosis (SHIP), a multi-site study funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing and supported by SANE Australia. Together with an alignment of scientific and clinical stars, I am currently working on more outcomes from this study. I am extremely motivated to apply the knowledge gained into real-world effects, felt by real people in real communities. I am always looking for bright emerging researchers to foster through post-graduate research in this important work. Also, I'm always looking for co-supervisors in various disciplines. We have students from nutrition & dietetics, psychology and nursing, and are now looking for students in occupational therapy, social work, and health economics.

Since 2013, I have held a Conjoint appointment with the School of Medicine & Public Health, while employed by Calvary Mater Newcastle, providing Clinician-Researcher Education, Development & Support. The aim of my role has been to increase research capability and capacity, to develop and implement activities and resources to support clinician-researchers, build their research profiles and strengthen their national and international reputation for research excellence. This has been through a comprehensive, sustained and strategic program of department-wide engagement, education, support and empowerment, as well as consistent networking outside our department and institution. We have seen improvements in numbers of peer-reviewed publications, conference presentations, higher research degree candidatures and supervisions, and increased attraction of external speakers to our weekly Research and Education Forum. The capacity has been built and staff ability is now self-sustaining. Further, rather than focusing solely on individuals and smaller teams, we are widening our collaborative links. Why not contact me to find our 'dove-tails'?

Previously, I was active in the merge of two major research bodies, Hunter Neuroscience and Centre for Mental Health Studies, under the guidance of Prof Vaughan Carr, into the Priority Research Centre for Brain and Mental Health.

Research Expertise
The University of Newcastle awarded me my PhD in 2013, investigating the way people with and without schizophrenia interpret sounds (see NOVA). I was interested in why they might have auditory verbal hallucinations and referential delusions of communication. I designed a tool called ToMas (Theory of Mind auditory stimuli) to see if there were differences between how people with schizophrenia and mentally healthy controls labelled non-word sounds as having a message or not. It turns out, yes and no... The labelling was similar, but the neuroimaging results were completely different.

I completed my B Science (Honours) in 2004, and my B Science in 2003.

I have research experience in electroencephalography, functional and structural brain imaging (using MRI techniques), as well as psychological testing in terms of psychopathology, intelligence, and theory of mind. My primary research interest is psychosis, in particular, schizophrenia, and how people live and thrive with such a potentially debilitating condition. I have potential research projects along these themes, which are appropriate for graduates of psychology, nursing, science, medicine, medical science, physical activity ... to name the main ones ...

Teaching Expertise
Since 2013, I have developed a program of research skills workshops, called "Write Club". I wrote and delivered these to enable staff in a very clinical environment to develop skills in research design, study conduct and data analysis. This has included literature and methodology review, conference presentation skills (and 3-minute thesis coaching), PhD coaching and critical analysis, just to name a few. If you are interested, look up ResearchGate.

Additionally, I have provided individual tutoring, problem-based learning tutorials, group demonstration and lecturing. I have marked exams and various assignments.

I have taught introductory psychology, 2nd-year statistics / use of SPSS, 2nd-year psychobiology and 2nd-year medicine (problem-based learning). More recently, I have co-supervised at Honours & M Phil levels (psychology; nutrition and dietetics) and have provided HDR mentoring and PhD coaching (in radiation oncology, radiation therapy, speech pathology, medical physics, radiology and nuclear medicine).

Community Service and Management Expertise
I have served on the CMN Research Committee (since 2013) and the CMN Clinical Ethics Committee (since 2016), and provide international journal reviews.

I have managed research projects, (including staff, ethics, WHS and finances); as well as training and supervising researchers and service provision staff from multiple sites and disciplines. In a previous life (as I started at UoN as a mature-age student) I ran my own business, and managed staff in a large international company. I seem to have been instrumental in implementing change and project-managing change even then, though, these days I use a much more evidence-based approach!

Collaborations
Over the years, I have been involved in neuroscience, socio-economic research, psychological explorations, epidemiological and symptomatic studies of psychosis, as well as recently dabbling in a little cancer research. This has meant that I have had the pleasure and honour of collaborating with a wide variety of clinicians and researchers, with vast arrays of expertise and experience. And, I have learned valuable lessons each step of the way.

Here at The University of Newcastle, I've learned what research is all about - collaboration, respect, appreciation, honesty and courage - and I've learned it from good people, with high professional and personal integrity.

1/08/2002 - 31/12/2008 Researcher and Acting Project Manager

As a Researcher and Project Manager, I conducted neuropsychological assessments and EEG sessions with participants (with Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia and healthy controls); managing staff and communications, lab supplies and repairs. I conducted a live-to-air interview on ABC Radio for recruitment purposes. I reported to Prof Ulli Schall. (January 2007-May2008).

Researcher: I was responsible for advertising an earlier study - recruitment and clinical assessment of participants with and without ADHD, and their data collection, processing and analysis. I wrote opinion pieces for The Herald and The Star (both local newspapers in Newcastle, Australia) and was first author on the resulting publication. This was originally my Honours project, and I continued to collect data for the duration of ethics approval, toward publishing our findings. Chief Investigators were A/Prof Frini Karayanidis and Prof Ulli Schall. (January 2004-December 2008).

Researcher: Starting out as a one-semester work experience placement under the supervision of Prof Ulli Schall, I used the LONI Method developed at UCLA in the United States to manipulate magnetic resonance images of participants’ brains for comparison of specific features. The Schizophrenia Research Institute (formerly NISAD) provided a Summer Scholarship for approximately eight weeks (Dec 2002 - Feb 2003) to enable sufficient training. Continuing on from my Summer Scholarship, The University of Newcastle employed me as a research assistant investigating brain differences due to schizophrenia, chronic cannabis use, or both. (August 2002-July 2005).

© 2014 Elsevier Ireland Ltd. Research demonstrates that people living with serious mental illness (SMI) contend with widespread public stigma; however, little is known about the specific experiences of stigma that mothers, and in particular fathers, with SMI encounter as parents. This study aimed to explore and compare the experiences of stigma for mothers and fathers with SMI inferred not only by living with a mental illness but also potential compounding gender effects, and the associated impact of stigma on parenting. Telephone surveys were conducted with 93 participants with SMI who previously identified as parents in the Second Australian National Survey of Psychosis. Results indicated that mothers were more likely than fathers to perceive and internalise stigma associated with their mental illness. Conversely, fathers were more inclined to perceive stigma relating to their gender and to hold stigmatising attitudes towards others. Mental illness and gender stigma predicted poorer self-reported parenting experiences for both mothers and fathers. These findings may assist in tailoring interventions for mothers and fathers with SMI.
