  • DPSY 695 Leadership Development

  • DPSY 998 Introduction to the Dissertation

  • DPSY 644 Attachment-Based Interventions

My primary research focus is on integrating attachment theory into leadership development and organizational consulting, as well as psychotherapy and positive psychological assessment. Attachment theory is a theory of personality that impacts human functioning across the lifespan. It underlies patterns of threat perception, emotion regulation, exploration, and interpersonal functioning. As such, it impacts all areas where people are in relationship with each other including at work. My aim is to develop attachment-based measures of leadership appropriate for administration in organizational settings. I also focus on refining the measurement of hope as a dispositional outlook on the future and orientation toward goals. Finally, I focus on using attachment theory to understand the specific mechanisms involved in transmitting positive psychological states into behaviors that foster resiliency and adaptive functioning in both at-risk and high-functioning populations.
