  • Working from home during the pandemic: from resistance to revolution August 2021

    In a survey of Australian public servants on experiences of working from home during a COVID-19 pandemic lockdown, CQUniversity work and employment researcher, A/Prof Linda Colley and collaborators, have found that working from home can be beneficial for individuals, families and organisations. According to A/Prof Colley, the survey highlighted a significant shift in managers mindsets with dramatic reductions in resistance to working from home. “This is a major finding and indicates a revolution in the way managers think about working from home - in comparison to our 2018 research that found extensive managerial resistance across four state public services.”

  • Preparation, anxiety and COVID-19 narratives for Children July 2020

    Previous work from researchers in this team has examined the effect of parental anxiety on the way parents prepare – or fail to prepare – their children for trauma or disaster. This USQ project will apply that understanding in the context of COVID-19 in Australia. By analysing public narratives of COVID-19 directed towards children, including television programs, advertisements, and stories, the project will consider the experience of trauma and its production of anxiety, growth or resilience in both parents and children. In this way, it seeks to understand appropriate coping narratives for children in a range of traumatic and disaster contexts.
