Professional Background

I have a Ph D  in social work from Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo Canada. I currently teach at the School of Social Work, UTA, Arlington, TX.

I have BIP work experience but much of my present research involves outcome-based work on batterer programs. I am currently evaluating a solution-focused BIP group in Fort Worth Texas. This evaluation is supported by Court 5 and has been ongoing for 2 years. I am also using a control group to measure outcomes.

I have also been part of a research team that developed YODA-Youth Offender Diversion Alternatives, an assessment and treatment program for youth aged 15-21 who had assaulted their non intimate partner. The program was developed in 2012 and completed in late 2013. Our team used a solution-focused protocol with a trained therapist to evaluate and intervene. Two evaluations have been completed. The program is currently sustainable and is an ongoing part of offender work with youth in Fort Worth.
