Research Interests

My main research interests are in the areas of service user and carer involvement, social inclusion, social justice and the interface between social work and political conflict. My research publications particularly in the field of user involvement have informed social work education both regionally and internationally. I am committed to working in partnership with service users as peer researchers and several of my publications evidence this approach. I have established strong international research links with New York, Penn State, Alicante and Ljubljana Universities which have all culminated in completed and ongoing research outputs.

My approach to teaching reflects a commitment to transformative and progressive pedagogy. I am particularly interested in the contribution that service users and carers make to helping students understand the impact of political conflict.  An innovative aspect of my approach to teaching involves partnerships with service user and carer groups, in teaching challenging pedagogical concepts to social work students.

My approach to teaching has been recognised as I am the recipient of:

National Teaching Fellowship Award, Higher Education Academy (October, 2014)

Health and Social Care Regional Social Work Award (September, 2013)

Queen’s University Teaching Award (July, 2013)
