Joan Abbott-Chapman is an Adjunct Professor in the Faculty of Education and the Menzies Institute for Medical Research. Joan’s research and publications have contributed to social and educational theory, policy and practice. Their main focus is factors that encourage young people’s educational engagement and achievement, their long-term health and the inhibition of health-compromising risk-taking. Related research includes the role of social constructs of space and place in youth identity and self-efficacy. Her contribution to education in Australia and internationally was recognised by the Australian College of Educators’ Tasmania Award in 2002 and Fellowship of the College in 2003.

  • Students’ health motivation and long-term health outcomes

Research Themes

Joan’s research aligns to the University’s research themes of Creativity, Culture and Society and Better Health, developing synergies between the two within an interdisciplinary research team context. Her work on improving equity and access to post-compulsory education of students disadvantaged   by socio-economic and rural backgrounds has identified the key role played by inspirational teachers, and supportive school climates of high expectations, in fostering students’ school engagement, raised aspirations and achievement. Factors encouraging the partnership between parents, teachers and the wider community in student support are expressed in shared cultural and social capital that underpins the development and resilience of individual students, local community and the wider society. These factors also play a part in the inhibition of harmful and health compromising risk-taking among adolescent students, such as smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol and use of illicit drugs, that may have damaging effects upon educational  performance and attainment.  Joan’s latest research, with Menzies colleagues, on the association between levels of school engagement, risk taking  and long-term educational, occupational and health outcomes continues her life-long research interest in improving disadvantaged students’ educational and social opportunities. The current search for modifiable factors in school and community that encourage students’ school engagement, health literacy and better health outcomes continues this ongoing research.

She has also collaborated with Prof. Margaret Robertson, Latrobe University, in the investigation of young people’s social and spatial constructs and  their use  of private and public space.
