Academic Interests: I maintain a research and clinical interest in the mental health of women, especially regarding intimate partner violence, family violence, depression and pregnancy, and long term consequences of childhood sexual & physical abuse. My teaching interests include distance education, interactive educational strategies for clinical decision making, and culturally competent teaching & learning. Academically I am interested in test writing skill and competence.
I have had 30 years experience in teaching nursing at the baccalaureate and graduate levels. I have also maintained a limited psychotherapy practice throughout my teaching career. I am a member of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association with active national participation. I am on the editorial boards of several professional journals.
