Associate Professor of Applied Psychology, Griffith University

My research interests lie predominantly within the anxiety disorders and specifically with the aetiology, prevention and treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). In particular I have a focus on resilience training and injury mitigation. I am currently also researching the effects of violent media (particularly violent video games) within the community, the detection of lying in forensic settings, the prevalence and type of pseudoscience in various settings, trauma and memory, the prevention of postnatal disorders, the treatment of adolescent sex offenders, reactions and approaches following crime victimisation, and increasing officer safety during training and whilst policing licensed premises. I also research clinical methodology and approaches to statistical analysis and interpretations of these analyses.
