Research interests include self-perception and other-attribution in social, clinical, and clinical-forensic contexts.
The Laboratory for the Study of Self-Perception and Other-Attribution in Context (SPOAC) conducts research that broadly integrates clinical, personality, and social psychological perspectives. Specific foci include contextual and prejudicial factors influencing blame and responsibility (culpability) attribution; self-blame, coping, and resilience in victims and socially marginalized persons; personality, prejudice, and prejudice reduction; narrative phenomenology and research methods; and, application of these issues to clinical and clinical-forensic domains.
For example, recent research within the lab has focused on the following specific topics:
