I teach a variety of courses in the Psychology program, including General Psychology (PSYC 101), Psychological Statistics (PSYC 250), Psychological Assessment (PSYC 318) and Abnormal Psychology (PSYC 360). The syllabi and handouts for these courses are available through the Desire2Learn (D2L) web site at UW-Parkside. General descriptions of these courses are in the Psychology Catalog.
I am also co-faculty advisor for the Certificate Program in Mental Health.
My research lies in the areas of clinical and personality. Since 1990, I've been mainly interested in the interpersonal aspects of personality and maladjustment, and in developing the implications of the interpersonal circumplex model of personality.
