Violence, particularly violence against women and children; institutional responses to violence (police, courts, health, social services etc.); community psychology.
Research InterestsAs a community psychologist, Neville has a strong preference for applied research on community issues, particularly those in which issues of social justice are at stake. This includes programme evaluation - research which helps the development of social services and assesses their effectiveness.
He is particularly interested in institutional responses to violence against women. Other areas of interest are child abuse, the prevention of family violence, crime prevention generally, community development, and gender and cultural justice.
