I am interested in researching adolescent development in the family context that is, how does the family influence adolescent development for good and bad. I am particularly interested in the interface between family variables and adolescent resiliency and the ability to face risks.
I am also interested in processes in couple and family therapy. What leads to successful outcomes? What processes are effective? What variables are important to look at? In my professional writing, I am interested in addressing the clinical issues facing couple and family therapists what are the influences of gender in families and on clinical work? What are the influences of culture? of Sexual Orientation? of Aging?
