Research Expertise

Research Interests

Robyn is the Professor of Social Work in the School of Social Work, Massey University, New Zealand. She is the Director of the Practice Research and Professional Development Hub which offers learning opportunities for practitioners and supports practitioners to work alongside researchers to investigate practice in a range of community settings and social service agencies. Robyn has qualifications in social work, disability studies and sociology. In 2002 Robyn was awarded an ONZM (Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit) for services to research and education in social work. Robyn is the co-leader of the New Zealand site of an international, longitudinal study on young people's pathways to resilience and transitions funded by the Ministry for Business, Innovation and Employment (www.youthsay.co.nz). This research has generated several publications in national and international journals,  book chapters and technical reports. The Youthsay website contains important information for policy makers, practitioners and educators. An important outcome of the research is the development of a framework for practice: The PARTH model,an orientation to practice with vulnerable young people that enables practitioners to provide  interventions that can more effectively respond to the complex needs of these youth.  Robyn undertakes research on family and community wellbeing; children and young people; social work theory and practice; disability and citizenship approaches; community development and research methodologies. She has published nationally and internationally on this research. Her particular interest is working with practitioners to translate research findings into practice in statutory, NGOs and community settings. She has been on the editorial boards of several international journals and for 10 years has been the co-editor of Qualitative Social Work: Research and Practice. She has held a number of service roles and has for a number of years been an Adjunct Professor in the disability studies programme at York University, Canada. She particularly enjoys the supervision of postgraduate PhD and Masters students and in 2006 was awarded the Massey University Research Medal for postgraduate research supervision.

Project Title: Long-term successful youth transitions - A national, longitudinal mixed methods investigation

By 2020, the Long-term Successful Youth Transitions Study (LtSYT) will make major contributions to policy and practice concerning long-term resource configurations and multi-system responses likely to optimise transition pathways and enhance high-risk young peoples (yp¿s) social connectedness. The LtSYT will extend the unparalleled multi-agency engagement of MAUX0801 to analyse the transition pathways of a large cohort of vulnerable yp. These multi-agency relationships will ensure maximum leveraging of research outcomes. Over 6 years we will investigate the characteristics of the most successful transition pathways to define strategies that enhance the capacity of vulnerable young people to make positive decisions that enable social participation and connections. Yp navigate significant life transitions including leaving school, further education and/or employment, establishing an independent base, identity and lifestyle choices. There is a growing concern to provide a protective framework for young people moving through these years [1].

Project Title: GDF - Long term resilience pathways for high risk young people

The research is part of an international study associated with the Resilience Research Centre in Canada. It is funded in NZ by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment and is made up of two related projects. Both projects focus on young people with complex needs. This is a 6 year study looking at what services young people in NZ have used and what their experiences have been. Its aim is to identify services and strategies that are successful in assisting young people to achieve positive outcomes in their lives.

Project Title: A national mixed methods investigation of troubled children/young people's pathways to resilience (PtRP).

This five-year research programme offers a unique opportunity to generate policy-relevant evidence concerning the pathways that children and young people (cyp) travel that lead to involvement with the youth justice, child protection, specialist educational and community support systems, the factors that protect them from such involvement and the characteristics of the most effective interventions. The cyp that are the focus of this research experience severe and persistent disadvantage throughout their early lives; they are least likely to participate and succeed. The Pathways to Resilience Programme (PtRP) will inform development of policy and practice concerning key individual and ecological differences between cyp who overcome adversity (resilient) those that do not (non-resilient) and the types of service configurations that most enhance their resilience. Using a multi-systems approach it will contribute directly to BIS 1, theme 3 by identifying the systemic and other factors that can enhance participation and success amongst this section of the community.
