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

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.
