document_stackFor most of my career, I have engaged in psychological research on a range of topics, mostly having to do with the relationship between individuals and social systems. My work has been characterized by a variety of methodologies and has often been collaborative, involving work with colleagues and with students. Both the topics of my research and the methods I employ reflect my interest in the intersection of the personal and the social dimensions of human experience. Some of this research has led to presentations at professional conferences and to publications. Some has become the basis for community consultation. Some has even served as the basis for media and cultural productions. In one way or another, all of it has informed my clinical work and training.

Below is a sample of some of my work that has appeared in print or has been presented at professional conferences.
