Andrew Fuller's Biography

Dr Andrew Fuller has recently been described as “an interesting mixture of Billy Connolly, Tim Winton and Fraser Krane” and as someone who “puts the heart back into psychology”. As a clinical psychologist, Andrew Fuller works with many schools and communities in Australia and internationally, specialising in the wellbeing of young people and their families.

Andrew has been a principal consultant to the national drug prevention strategy REDI, the ABC on children’s television shows, is an Ambassador for Mind Matters and is a member of the National Coalition Against Bullying.

The concept of "resilience" offers a coherent framework for the creation of schools that are sensitive to the developmental needs of young people and their teachers. As Andrew describes, resilience is "the happy knack of being able to bungee jump through the pitfalls of life - to rise above adversity and obstacles."

Andrew Fuller is the author of Tricky Kids, Guerilla Tactics for Teachers, Help Your Child Succeed at School, From Surviving to Thriving,Work Smarter not Harder and Beating Bullies. Andrew has also co-authored a series of programs for the promotion of resilience and emotional intelligence used in over 3500 schools in Britain and Australia called The Heart Masters.
