My research interests include mental health (individual/group psychotherapy), cutaneo-chroma, intra-racial racism, Bleaching Syndrome, and black male Cool Pose concept. My social work research interests extend to four areas in particular. They are as follows: colorism litigation, special populations, and human behavior and the social environment. I intend that these interests provide a means that will be instrumental in the advancement of casework, clinical social work, and various aspects of society-at-large.
