Biography

Simon has previously been a lecturer at Massey University, and more recently worked as a Learning Advisor and was Head of Academic Support Services at BTI. Alongside and subsequent to this role at BTI, Simon has been a contract educator within the Bachelor of Counselling programme.

He has taught Professional Practice1: Socio-political Considerations and Human Lifespan. His work has involved online teaching, marking and paper coordination. He has received positive feedback from students and colleagues about the quality of his teaching and development of written resources. His expertise around the social effects of language enables him to develop materials that are culturally safe, informed by knowledge of Christian, Māori, feminist, queer, Marxist and many other perspectives and critiques. Through his familiarity with APA’s respectful language guidelines, he is able to educate people in ways that help them to build positive, constructive relationships with diverse communities.

He completed his PhD (Doctor of Philosophy) in 2011 at Massey University. His doctoral thesis aimed at a framework of validation for producing non-violent psychological theory. His formal study has been in the area of psychology, particularly in the “critical psychology” tradition that develops politically and culturally informed critiques of the mainstream clinical approach, and the related areas of discursive and narrative theory. He has spent many years studying and teaching about the relationships between language and human experience, particularly  the relationships between identity and behaviour. As well as a broad interest in spirituality and subjectivity, special areas of focus in his study and teaching of psychology have been violence, truth, and the relationships between these constructs.

He has advanced skills in the teaching of research principles and methods, and the evaluation of research quality. In addition, he has specialist expertise around assessing the quality of research literature in terms of socialimpacts, along with traditional assessments of validity.

He has a strong personal faith.
