My background is in social, environmental, and community psychology. I am particularly interested in the issues of social cognition, interpersonal relations, group dynamics, and mental health service delivery. My current research involves the relationship of alcohol use to sexual assault and the role of physical appearance and interpersonal evaluation. My teaching interests include social, environmental, community, and adolescent psychology. I also regularly team teach a graduate course on ethical and legal issues for mental health professionals. My interest in community psychology has led me to consult frequently on program evaluation and organizational and group dynamics issues for community health agencies. I am very active with the Mental Health Association in North Carolina and the North Carolina Psychological Association in their work advocationg for the the needs of persons with mental illness and the promotion of mental health among our citizens.
