Areas of Research

Qualitative methodologies; practice, issues, teaching, and supervising in social work and family therapy
My area of expertise is in conducting research using qualitative methodologies. I am also interested and invested in studying questions in social work and family therapy that are derived from direct practice with clients and in the community. In addition, I have been working on ways we can include social justice into daily therapeutic work. My colleague, Dan Wulff, and I have developed (and continue to develop) a process called Research As Daily Practice that centers practitioners’ knowledges and their questions of inquiry drawn from their daily practices. We utilize qualitative methodologies that are synchronous with therapeutic practices. The primary benefits are that the results are immediately usable and there is no need for funding or additional personnel to systematically study the questions that arise from daily practice.
