Research Summary

I am presently working on the use of narrative in the forensic psychiatry context, particularly as it applies to the “performance” of the forensic specialist—both in written and in oral forms. The second project focuses on clarifying how the forensic psychiatrist can perform the necessary roles while maintaining eyes on parameters that are rooted in solid narrative ethics. The robust ethics base is especially important when the forensic performance is at risk for undue influence from socio-cultural factors.
