I am a senior lecturer in psychology at the University of Tasmania and a senior clinical psychologist in private practice. I am the lead researcher in the Family and Interpersonal Relationship Research Lab. My research focuses on family relationships and how these relationships influence children’s psychosocial development. I have a particular interest in understanding parental alienation, family violence and their impact on psycho-social functioning. In my private practice, I work with families and individuals affected by parental alienation. I am the co-author of the book Understand and Managing Parental Alienation: A guide to assessment and intervention.
