About this book

This book explores the interdependence of health and education, and how optimising this important relationship provides the foundation for achieving improved life outcomes from birth into adulthood. Adopting a multi-disciplinary approach, it draws on bio-medical, epidemiological, educational, psychological and economic evidence to demonstrate the benefits of the reflexive, positive associations between good health and educational attainment over the life course. In this, it offers readers insights into the complex nature of the nexus between health and education and how this relationship influences development. Health and Education Interdependence: Thriving from Birth to Adulthood is essential reading for education and health researchers and policymakers, teachers and public health and health promotion practitioners, as well as students studying in these fields.


About the authors

Richard Midford is a director and clinical psychologist at Perth Psychological Services. He also holds an adjunct professorial appointment at the National Drug Research Institute and an honorary professorial appointment at the Menzies School of Health Research. His research has focused on the development of wellbeing programmes in schools, how alcohol and drug harm prevention programmes can be developed in local communities and prevention of alcohol and drug harm in workplace settings.

Georgie Nutton is a senior lecturer in education at Charles Darwin University and is strongly committed to improving early childhood education policy, research and practice. Her current research focuses on understanding community driven social change through a lens of complexity, self-regulation, executive function, and equity in regional and remote contexts, especially in the Northern Territory and Timor-Leste.

Brendon Hyndman is the course director of postgraduate studies in education (Post-Initial Teacher Education courses) and a senior lecturer in personal development, health and physical education at Charles Sturt University. A passionate disseminator of educational research evidence to the broader public, his work has focused on raising awareness of the range of influences and strategies that impact on students’ engagement in physical activities via informal, pedagogical and curricular approaches.

Sven Silburn is the former head of the Centre for Child Development and Education at the Menzies School of Health Research. His research over the past 30 years has resulted in several influential publications. Most recently he led the development of datalinkage research in Australia’s Northern Territory utilising population data from health, education, child protection, justice and other administrative sources; and intervention studies in childhood development and parenting, youth life-skills, suicide prevention, and the prevention of foetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD).
