Paul is an occasional contributor to the Working with ACT site.
I am an organisational psychologist and Associate Professor in Leadership and Organisational Behaviour at the Crawford School of Public Policy, Australian National University. You can see my Crawford page here. That page lists my publications and provides links to some of them.
Workwise, some of the things I am most passionate about include improving mindfulness and relationships and making sense of consciousness and identity using relational frame theory. My research is focused on studying the effects of mindfulness and psychological flexibility training on increasing work engagement, reducing defensive behaviour and improving relationships at work.
I have four wonderful PhD students working on ACT/RFT related topics and have recently published an article on psychological flexibility and compassion in organisations in Academy of Management Review.
I also teach a “Mindfulness for Living and Working Well” program at ANU. The Human Resources department at ANU has been extremely foresighted in funding these extremely popular 8 week programs twice a year to help improve staff wellbeing and performance.
