Research Projects/Activities

I am a registered psychologist whose clinical work is primarily in the field of child and  adolescent assessment. I currently supervise students in the School and Clinical Child  Psychology program who are undertaking psychoeducational assessments at the OISE Counselling and Psychoeducational Clinic. I am also actively engaged in bringing my research into the public policy sphere, providing periodic consultation to government, legal, and judicial organizations regarding Canada’s youth justice legislation.
