My current research projects include: (a) explanation and inquiry in research and practice . This includes the nature of protective and dynamic risk factors and their theoretical grounding in embodied agency; (b) normative issues in forensic and clinical practice including restorative justice and therapeutic jurisprudence; and (c) change processes in the psychopathology and forensic/correctional domains.
