She is passionate about inter-professional practice and preparing the next generation of health practitioners for effective and culturally sensitive practice in regional, rural and remote areas.
Associate Professor Yoxall is a member of the Australian Psychological Society and has worked in acute and community mental health, rehabilitation and return to work, aged care and dementia assessment, organisational consultancy and private practice across the clinical and forensic domains of assessment and treatment.
Associate Professor Yoxall’s practice and research interests lie in the area of human response to trauma, the nexus between psychology and criminal or civil law and psychological assessment. She supervises PhD and Masters students and is currently leading projects in telehealth implementation in student clinical education within the Southern Cross University Health Clinic; and remote Australia inter-professional immersion placements.
