One of the most enjoyable aspects of my role as Editor-in-Chief of Sexual Abuse: A Journal of Research and Treatment (SAJRT) is the opportunity to meet and interview the authors of SAJRT articles, who include many of the top experts in the field.  These interviews are available as free podcasts (downloadable sound files) at the SAJRT page at Sage Publications.

In the news



All research is for the public good, and it is a duty of a scientist always to make the results of one’s work as available as possible to the public.  I am grateful to the media for their interest.
