Research

Dissertation:  Responsibility acceptance and aggression changes following group therapy for relationship abuse perpetrators. Chair, Christopher M. Murphy, Ph.D.

My research interests are in attitudes towards relationship violence and relationship indiscretions, but I consider myself a generalist interested in topics related to social psychological factors affecting clinical work. My primary goal is to facilitate undergraduate research projects. In addition to studies in my research area, I recently have supervised undergraduate research projects related to attitudes towards people with developmental disabilities, attitudes about physical punishment of children, double standards about premarital sex in men and women, attitudes about transgendered individuals, speech anxiety and mindfulness, and stigma about psychological counseling.
