My research focuses upon promoting people's ability to foster their own and others' healthy social and intellectual development, especially within the context of communities and families. Much of my research has focused on parent-child and women's development and citizen community participation from the perspective of primary prevention and the promotion of healthy development. I am currently investigating:

  • people's concepts of knowledge and truth (epistemological perspectives), and the relationships between these perspectives and the construction of contexts that support human development.
  • the relationship between adult development, co-parenting, and parenting beliefs and practices, and their implications for promoting parent, child, and family development.
  • neighborhood/community leadership as it reflects and promotes individual, family and community development.
  • community-based strategies to promote peoples' abilities to define and achieve personal and community goals, especially among those who feel disenfranchised.
