Major Areas of Research:
The broad area of research has been human
development and associated psychological
variables. Specifically areas of research
have centered on human
psychosocial and personal growth particularly during the adult years of life, when the growth loses its concreteness and visibility that is predominant in childhood and adolescence. Doctoral research was on midlife generative concern development and its positive outcomes. Several of the research publications have been extracted from the doctoral work, relationships between personality dimensions, narcissism, self-efficacy and midlife personal growth. Other smaller cross-sectional studies have also been done on adolescent resilience, cognitive errors, metacognition and gender-identity; working woman's marital satisfaction'. Recently a survey was done on ageing mothers' changing perception of motherhood and explorations of adolescents' attitudes toward their approaching motherhood role. Currently, qualitative research methodology and result analyses techniques are being employed in contrast to the previously used quantitative methodology.
