It is well known that marriage can affect the physical and mental health of the partners (and their offspring) in a variety of ways. My research and professional focus is on the interplay of each partner's 'intrapersonal' cognitive/emotional processing and their joint 'interpersonal' dynamics. Experimental procedures have been developed (and published) to influence these conjoint 'intrapersonal' and 'interpersonal' dynamics so as to enhance the quality of life of the partners. The impact of these dynamics on the health of the partners is being studied. Currently I am focussed on studying South Asian marriages in depth and developing a therapy that is especially efficacious for South Asian marriages that they find highly appropriate to their values, traditions and reality here in Canada.
