Current Research Interests

My main research interests lie in the areas of group work and corrective feedback. My research has resulted in the publication of two books and over 30 refereed published papers. 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.

In 2010 I began collaborating with retired Police Captain, Peter J. McDermott. Our collaboration has resulted in published articles in the FBI Law Enforcement Bulletin and Counseling Today. Our most recent publication is the training handbook, Policing in the 21st Century: TALK Trumps Technology.

In April of 2016 I, along with Peter McDermott and Fairfield faculty, alumni, and studnets, ran a pilot training program in interpersonal skills training for police recruits. In six 3-hour sessions police learned, practiced, and mastered core interpsonal skill competencies.

Peter McDermott and I led another training workshop in January 2017, for police personnel supervisors from the Enfield, Connnecticut Police Department. Topics of this training were active listening and responding skills, preplanning for feedback in police supervision, and facilitating leadership tasks.
