Current Research Interests

My main research interests lie in the areas of group work and corrective feedback. One of my unique contributions has been the development and publication of the Corrective Feedback Instrument-Revised which is used as a discussion tool to help professionals better understand factors that influence the exchange of feedback and its implications.

Since 2010 I have collaborated with Peter J. McDermott, a retired Connecticut police captain and retired instructor in the police academy in Meriden, CT. We co-authored a book and several articles for The Internaltional Association of Directors of Law Enforcement Standards and Training Newsletter, FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin and The Police Chief that focus on interpersonal skills training in police academy curriculum, skills for giving and receiving corrective feedback in police training, and skills for leadership tasks in police organizations. These articles set the stage for presentations and workshops on these topics for law enforcement personnel.

In 2018 we shifted our focus to the active listening and responding skills needed to imporve civil discourse in community, social, and work settings. We co-authored a book manuscript, with support from the Patrick J. Waide Center for Applied Ethics at Fairfield University, An Everyday Guiide to Unlocking Relationship Competencies. Active Listening and Responding Skills to Enhance Face-to-Face Interactions in the Digital Age. We are exploring publication options with Fairfield University.
