We explore topics related to social exclusion using a wide variety of approaches, methodologies, and paradigms.
In our participatory action research (PAR) and youth participatory action research (YPAR) collaborations, we don't do studies on community members or young people, we do studies with them on issues of local importance. Moreover, we understand these projects to be growthful and educative for all parties involved.
We contribute our skills to support community-based organizations and advocacy work that advances social inclusion and psychological wellness.
Through our qualitative work, we are able to bring the nuances of participants' own voices and insights to bear on our research questions. The data that we analyze for these projects often exists in the form of interview or focus group narratives.
These projects address research questions that can be addressed via the collection of statistically-analyzable data.
We have one such project now in progress and we are inviting participants! In it, we are investigating the kinds of services that K-12 teachers and school counselors can recommend for their students. We would appreciate your participation if you work in a school in one of these ways:
1) You are a teacher
2) You are a school counselor, school social worker, or school psychologist
3) You are a graduate-level trainee in one of these fields -- either teaching/education or school counseling/social work/psychology

We understand psychological principals, practices, and scholarship to have important implications for the broad public interest -- and vice versa. In our conceptual work, we analyze psychological research to discover its application to questions of social inclusion and equity, and we also analyze aspects of social inclusion/exclusion with regard to their implications for psychological practice.
