I am a Professor Emeritus of counselling psychology (Simon Fraser University -Canada). This link will take you to an abbreviated vita (usually somewhat out-of-date; sorry). The relationship in helping situations (therapy) is one of (but not the only) long standing research interests. I am also a practicing psychotherapist.
You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org; I usually get around to respond to WAI related correspondence at least once in every 10 days -unless I am on vacation or traveling. I don’t do Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn.
