I invite my students to question the scientific assumptions and methods of the discipline in which we work. Both my therapeutic work and teaching are informed by a descriptive contextualist approach to the practice of psychology. Descriptive contextualism emphasizes the social, historical and relational contributions to psychological knowledge and interventions. As such, it continually examines the values and priorities of the discipline, including ways that psychological discourses (e.g., psychopathology, psychotherapy) contribute to the social construction of human distress.
