As a consequence of his first job as the Resident Psychologist at Her Majesty’s Prison Parramatta in Sydney, he has developed a strong interest in dealing with individuals in confinement, which has been augmented by the global confinement which we are all experiencing in the present, as a result of the COVID-19 disease.
