Research Area:
Clinical
Synopsis:

My research is clinical oriented with a focus on child behaviour and family functioning.  Within this I have two interest areas including the work-family interface and parenting in low resources settings and countries such as Africa and with refugees.

Students working with me will do clinically relevant projects that will involve recruiting and working directly with parents. The projects are most suited to students with an interest in child and family psychology and who have good interpersonal and communication skills.

Student projects for 2014 will be along the lines of

  1. Needs assessment of parenting in the refugee settlement process. This project will involve data collection with practitioners working with refugee parents.
  2. Issues relating to balancing work and family expectations in employed fathers.  This may use a mixed method approach.
