Professor Campbell Paul is an Infant and Child Psychiatrist Consultant at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne and Honorary Principal Fellow in the Department of Psychiatry at the University of Melbourne.

These courses developed out of his long-standing experience in paediatric consultation, liaison psychiatry and work in infant parent psychotherapy.

Campbell has a special interest in the understanding of the inner world of the baby, particularly as it informs therapeutic work with infants and their parents. With colleagues, he has developed models of working in therapeutic groups with troubled parents and infants.

He has been a psychiatrist consultant at the Victorian Aboriginal Health Service and has also been involved in the establishment of the Koori Kids Mental Health Network. Campbell has worked with Northern Territory child mental health services in Central Australia. He is a member of the Board of Directors of the World Association for Infant Mental Health and he has organised a number of local and international conferences in the field of infant mental health.
