 My research has focussed on psychological implications of stress from a gender-role perspective. In particular we have focussed on factors related to Type A behaviour, gender differences, and stress. Another area we are investigating is burnout in teachers and its behavioural and psychological correlation. Recently, my research is investigating the relationship between social support, stress and gender factors. Other areas of interest include role conflict, the changing role of women and psychological factors, and the study of "wellness" from a psychological perspective. Other ongoing research interests include the study of the relationship between hostility, anger and social support and the psychological effects of downsizing and restructuring on nurses (with Ron Burke). Recent work also includes the development of a coping scale (with Ralf Schwarzer), The Proactive Coping Inventory, a multi-dimensional coping scale that focuses on how individuals utilize resources in the development of coping strategies.
