FIFO Family survey University of Queensland

Mining

In the past few days I have come across Dr Cassy Dittman who is working at the University of Queensland.

She is a psychologist and Curriculum Development Leader at the Parenting and Family Support Centre, University of Queensland.   She is also the daughter of a miner.

She has just commenced a research project looking at the impact of FIFO work practices on the family. This project is probably the first research program to look specifically at the impact FIFO has on the family.

I’ve just had a chat to her and she is very committed to gathering information and eventually developing some resources for FIFO families.

She is looking for FIFO families to participate in an anonymous online survey. I attach the link to the article about her project if you are interested in contributing.
