He also has an interest in the interaction between individual and group dynamics, including family relationships.
He is also administrator of general dynamics Sydney, facilitator of the Australian Psychological Society (APS) Peer Consultation Groups Network for NSW, and a member of the APS Sydney Branch Committee. He was convenor of the Sydney ISTDP Study Group from 2011 to 2015.
