Biographical details

One of the primary motivations for my academic and community work has been to promote the idea that clinical psychology need not limit itself to the individual or intrapsychic processes when considering how to approach problems of ‘mental health’ and psychotherapy. Clinical psychology can both contribute to and be influenced by a range of fields, including family therapy, community and critical psychology, social justice, feminism and contemporary developments in ethics and philosophy, while still pursuing rigorous forms of research support. We also need to consider the avante garde, for example post-humanism, if we are to remain progressive academics. The alternative remains stagantion and conservative epistomologies.

Much of my research and practice to date has been in family therapy, family-based treatment for anorexia nervosa, systemic approaches to intellectual disability or autism, and network-oriented supervision for those working with multi-stressed families. I have also conducted research in other fields, working with refugees, hearing voices, reflective practice, psychodynamic models of supervision, health psychology, organisational cultures in mental health and more.

As a researcher I have focussed on a wide range of qualitative positions, from grounded theory, to appreciative inquiry, interpersonal process recall, participatory action research and discourse analysis, but have also conducted and supported meta-analyses and meta-syntheses, RCT's, developed scales etc. I lean towards research that focusses on storied, relational and discursive constructions of lived experience, but am respectful of and can see the value of more traditional empirical and efficacy-based research. The key to innovation can be methodological promiscuity, depending on context.

As a clinical psychologist and post-structural family therapist I adhere to the principle that problems experienced by children and adolescents are maintained in interpersonal, community and discursive processes.. One of the aims of my practice and research is to explore innovative and contextual therapies, focussing on understanding, not just explanation, and empowerment not just vulnerabilities. Those experiencing "mental disorders" must not be objectified or subject to treatments that do not respect the idea that recovery involves the development of the whole person living and embodied in context. I reject practices that rely unnecessarily on the pathologising of individuals and families. I am also interested in work with adults, particularly that informed by recovery and narrative approaches.

I am also pursuing a closer engagement between clinical and community psychology and have come to believe that this can serve to rejuvinate both. Community psychology is critical, given its role in social action, its cultural responsiveness and the fact that this tradition does not collude with neo-liberal individualism and a deficit model of psychology. Community psychology, when applied to mental health problems can support the development of participatory and emancipatory practices, beyond the individual therapy room. (see article here PsychologyToday.com)

I am also part of a group that focusses on curriculum reform, centred around the decolonisation of clinical psychology practice and pedagogy. We aim to acknoweldge cultures and ways of making-meaning that have been erased by the hegemony of Western approaches to therapy, particualrly by psychiatry and clinical psychology, and equip our students for allyship.

As a teacher and supervisor I am conscious of the power differential between myself and my students and aim to foster learning and growth in a culture that is rigorous in scholarship, but also respectful and safe.I expect my students to engage with learning at both a personal and philosophical level and at the level of technique and competence. Bell Hooks insists that teaching must not "enact rituals of control”. and "practices of domination ."..but must be conducted in a "liberatory classroom" where the teacher "respects and cares for the soul of the student", "an engaged pedagogy"....

Research interests

Interested in doing a Phd..Masters research?

At present I am interested in supporting Phd students in the following areas:

1. Community-based approaches to mental health

Studies that integrate the fields of clinical and community psychology.

I convene a group of academics and community members (Community Psychology Advisory Panel) who represent a wide variety of interests, including the following;

Hearing Voices Networks, Open Dialogue approach to 'mental health' in young people, Multiple Family Therapy for Anorexia, The Recovery Movement in mental health, participatory work with refugee communities.

I am particularly looking for research students who want to collaborate with STARRTS, NSW Service for Treatment and Rehabilitation of Torture and Trauma Survivors

2. Theoretical psychology

Students wishing to conduct theoretical/philosophical theses, including the development of ideas from social contructionism and post-humanism to the criticism of psychology and the reconstruction/renewal of new conceptual and practical approaches. i am particulrly interested in any students interested in Lacanian psychotherapy, in the decolonisation of clinical psychology and in what a post-human psychotherapy would look like.

3. Narrative Inquiry

Studies that explore story as a root metaphor in psychology, including recovery stories, adversarial growth, hidden and marginalised stories in our field, or in society. I convene the Sydney Narrative Inquiry Research Group, which provides additional support for students. Studies must include a focus on discourse anaslysis.

4. Anorexia, embodiment and post-humainsim

I am keen to introdice new epistomologies and ideas regarding anorexia nervosa, given the reductionism and conservarism of much research and the acknowledgment that new paradigms and practices are required. I am specifically intrigued by the contribution of New Materialism

5. Arts-Based Research Collaboration

Studies that involve creative collaboration between qualitative research and art-based forms of dissemination. and community education
