This website is dedicated to my writings and research in psychology, with a focus on several subjects: Memory, Trauma, Violence, Restorative Justice, and the Self. More generally, this website draws connections between psychological research and meaningful problems in the world, establishing a dialog between research and everyday life.
The website links to my Psychology Today Blog, “Defining Memories,” which addresses a range of psychological subjects, including memory, forgiveness, violence, ethics, and wine. New blog posts appear every month.
The Liberal Arts are conveyed in the TED Videos and the Favorite Links. The TED videos are meant to teach current subjects in and around psychology, including happiness, personality, and decision making. Favorite Links will send people to a diversity of websites about creative, contemporary activities in art, architecture, music, literature, movies, psychology, biology, philosophy, and sustainability.
Two of my books are featured on the website – for those interested in more in-depth qualitative research in psychology. One book is a revealing study of the memories of Holocaust survivors. The other book explores how ordinary people commit extraordinary acts of violence and how perpetrators and victims manage in the aftermath.
