Keryn Proctor holds the degree of Masters of Family Therapy from La Trobe University.
Kerry's PhD project entitled "The Breaking Through Project: A school, family and rural community partnership to reduce suicide risk and increase safety in schools for at risk youth", was carried out in the Bouverie Centre, La Trobe University.
Breaking Through was developed in response to the concerns of the Departments of Education and Training (DE&T) and Human Services (DHS) about school bullying and violence and their link to depression and suicide in young people. It is a community development and holistic approach to challenge discrimination in schools involving families, students, staff and workers.
