Brief Description of Work: I am currently working on a manuscript, Reclaiming the Self in Psychiatry: Centering Personal Narratives for a Humanist Science (under contract with Routledge), in which I make a case for including the self as an explicit target of research in scientific psychiatry in order to develop humanistic care practices in the clinic and beyond — practices that help persons with mental disorders flourish. Empirical research on psychopathology and first-person narratives are central to this work.
