Research Expertise

Research Interests

Areas of interest include: assessment and intervention for behavioural disorders and behaviour problems | training and development for educational psychologists | school wide behaviour systems development and implementation | inter and transdiciplinary practice/teaming | interagency collaboration | inclusive education | positive psychology | teaming & group dynamics | collaboration & consultation | professional integrity | ethical professional behaviour | motivation

I have a particular interest in systems of support available to learners who present with challenging behaviour with a particular interest on integrating individual, class level, school wide, and community level supports. Similarly promoting and enhancing inter-agency collaboration is an equal area of interest with regard to the more complex situations to ensure student/learner presence, participation, and learning.
