Departments & Organizations
My research and writing over the past 15-plus years has centered on citizenship as an applied theoretical framework for the social inclusion and participation of people with mental illnesses. Related to this work is my past and continuing writing and research on homelessness and mental health outreach, and peer-informed interventions for people with mental illness and criminal histories. I also write and have conducted research in the areas of narrative medicine, patient-doctor relationships, high-technology medicine, and medical errors.
