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.
