Personal profile

Research

My aim is to contribute insight into family relationships  and the development of mental health and resilience, and into interventions that can support at risk parents and other caregivers in fostering high quality relationships with children. This goal is pursued by a combination of research on our Generations² longitudinal pregnancy cohort study, creation and synthesis of practice based and research based evidence, and intervention studies in partnership with intervention services and care organizations that support families, children, and people with disabilities. Attachment theory has been a major theoretical basis for this work since our program started in 2000.
