Professor of Clinical and Forensic Psychology, Simon Fraser University

I am a Professor of Clinical and Forensic Psychology at Simon Fraser University and an Associate Director of the Institute for the Reduction of Youth Violence. Also, I direct the Law Forensic Psychology program at Simon Fraser University. I completed my PhD at Simon Fraser University, and my residency at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. My research focuses on violence and criminal behavior, particularly risk assessment, risk management, and treatment for adolescents and adults. I have published more than 100 articles, chapters, and guides in these areas, and have held over $3 million in funding from agencies such as the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, the Michael Smith Foundation for Health Research, and the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. I regularly provide training and consultation on risk assessment to agencies in Canada, the United States, and Europe. In addition, as a clinical psychologist, I have conducted assessments and provided treatment to adolescents and adults in prisons, forensic hospitals, and psychiatric facilities.
