About Neville

I teach in the Community Psychologyprogramme. I have a particular interest in domestic violence and child abuse, an area in which I have worked for 30 years as a researcher, as a practitioner (facilitating groups for men who batter) and consultant (providing training and advice to agencies).

Research Interests

As a community psychologist, I have 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. I am particularly interested in community and institutional responses to violence against women and children.
