I have been studying and writing about the roles played by mothers and fathers in children’s lives for some decades.  It is clear that fathers play psychologically significant roles in the lives of most children, and that family relationships are the most important factors influencing psychological adjustment. My current work focuses on child witnesses.

Many thousands of children experience potentially life-changing abuse every year and many of these are denied help because their abuse remains undiscovered. Effective forensic interview practices mean that more victims are identified and protected.
