Area of expertise

Jungian psychology, mental health issues in acute and chronic medical illness, adaptation, life stage development, relational nursing, post-adolescent brain development and teaching implications

My substantive area of scholarship: using the theoretical framework of Jungian psychology, I have been exploring life stage development in older adults. In the past year I was invited to present the opening lecture at the CG Jung Institute in Zurich Switzerland on the topic, “Individuation after age 70”. I presented a lecture and workshop on this topic in April 2016 to the Jung Society of Portland Oregon and I have been invited to present at a breakout session on aging at the International Association for Analytical Psychology 2016 Congress in August.
