I contribute across the Department’s
programmes in the areas of youth work theory, policy and practice, supervision, professional skills
development and research theory and practice. My practice and research interests converge in a specific interest in
reflective practice, professional supervision, informal education, ethics and
values in professional practice and the professional formation
of gender conscious practitioners. I am particularly interested in the potential of informal social education
to develop young people's critical capacities as local and global
citizens who are committed to equality, social justice and human rights.
