Currently I am working on a project with the working title, The Psychology of God. In my latest work with Children with Autism and their families led me to research theological constructs from a psycholgical perspective. Before I became a psychologist I worked as a professional performing artist, which has greatly influenced and improved my skills in working with children and their families. Due to an illness, I am no longer able to contine this work in practice, but I will continue to contemplate and write about the mysteries of human behavior.

The human sense of humor is an extremely interesting and complicated subject. As an attribute, the human sense of humors has been a source of pleasure, comfort, and defense. It may serve as a moderating social tool, a shield against attack, or a weapon of aggression. The faucets of humor are wide and numerous, which has lead to the practice of usin...
Christian theology and scientific psychology dress many of the same issues but from different perspectives and arrive at different conclusions. This work examines theological concepts from a psychological perspective, and psychological concepts from a theological perspective.

The concept of status, as used and understood in the field of performing arts, is a means of describing, inducing, and controlling emotional co...
This work reviews some of the controversial issues related to ADHD such as Diagnosis, Measurement, Medication, and Therapy. While each of these Issues have been debated in depth in the past 20 years or more of ADHD research, conclusive knowledge of ADHD is yet to be found in terms of causes or cures.

Actors create realistic characters and scenes by increasing their conscious awareness of status, so that they may clearly demonstrate their relationships to people, objects, and environments.

In my dissertation on emotional processing, I would like to cross reference my measurements on emotional communication with a measure of EI and/or personality.
My measurement of emotional communication will be taken with the FACS and an ordinal measurement of the concept of status, as it is understood in the field of the performing arts.
About a year ago I started a book project with the title, “The Psychology of God.” Every week I wrote a 5-page essay, in which I examined various psychological concepts from a theological perspective, as well as various theological concepts from a psychological perspective. As a psychologist, I’ve studied the processes of human development, behavior, and learning. But as a child of God, I find that I too am in a process of development, learning, and behavior regulation. So, I had the idea to write about the psychology of God and found that the development we go through as children is essentially the same developmental process we go through as children of God.
Using the concept of Status, as it is understood in the field of the performing arts and especially improv, an ordinal level of measurement of status will be tested for association to a dichotomous variable of active or in active emotional facial expression, derived by identifying emotion specific action units by means of the FACS.
