About Me

Welcome! I’m Dr Christine Grové.

A researcher, educator and an Educational and Developmental Psychologist. Currently, I am a Lecturer in the Faculty of Education at Monash University. Inclusion is at the heart of my work. I am committed to equality, diversity and youth mental health and well-being.

I currently reside in Melbourne, Australia with my husband, Andrew, and our trained therapy dog, Bronson the Labradoodle.

I am the co-founder and director of the Educational Psychology Research Team at Monash University which explores the impact and ways of addressing vulnerability experienced by children, adolescents and families in schools and the community.

Here is a snapshot of one of our research projects: Bronson and Damon, the therapy dogs, with our Masters of Ed/Dev research team who are examining whether therapy dogs may or may not have an impact on student wellbeing in educational settings:
