Research Interests:

My latest work concerns psychological theories of ‘meaning’ with particular attention to a comparison of C. G. Jung’s theory of symbol formation with social constructionist, narrative, and dialogical approaches to self and identity. My involvement with post-Jungian studies includes serving as an advisor to the Journal of Analytical Psychology and as a member of the executive committee of the International Association for Jungian Studies and the co-ordinator of the IAJS web-site www.jungianstudies.org

Earlier and ongoing work concerns the relationship between children's perceptions of school and emotional and behavioural difficulties, and the social construction of the ‘pupil with problems’ in British education.
