Biographical details

Dr Lexine Stapinski is a Senior Research Fellow and Clinical Psychologist at the Matilda Centre for Research in Mental Health and Substance Use. Her research focusses on understanding how alcohol and substance use disorders develop, and how we can intervene early on to reduce their impact and prevent escalation. In 2017 she was awarded Australian Rotary Health funding to conduct a world first trial of the"Inroads" program, an online CBT program for young people who drink to cope with anxiety, stress or worries. She is the recipient of a 2017 NHMRC TRIP (Translating Research into Practice) Fellowship and leads the national Positive Choices project, which aims to improve translation of evidence-based drug and alcohol prevention. As part of this work she has established partnerships with Gilimbaa (Indigenous Creative Agency), schools and Aboriginal stakeholders to address the gap in culturally-appropriate drug and alcohol prevention resources for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Prior to joining the University of Sydney, Lexine worked at the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre, and the Macquarie University Centre for Emotional Health where she co-ordinated a randomised controlled trial of treatment (CBT and motivational interviewing) for co-morbid social anxiety and alcohol use disorders. She also completed a two year Research Fellowship within the School of Social and Community Medicine at the University of Bristol, where she explored longitudinal patterns of mental health and substance use in adolescents. Her PhD research examining generalised anxiety disorder received the Vice Chancellor’s Commendation for outstanding research achievement.
