Role and profile
Professor Day is a clinical and forensic psychologist who has an interest in the application of psychological theory and knowledge to the criminal justice system. He has particular expertise in the area of offender rehabilitation and correctional programming.
Unit Chair and lecturer in the D.Psych. and Clinical Masters programs
My disciplinary area represents an area of teaching and research that exemplifies the need for individuals to make positive change, both for themselves and for the communities in which they live. My research interests encompass all of the key areas of clinical-forensic psychology, although my specific expertise lies in the treatment and rehabilitation of offenders. This is an area which, in recent years, has become heavily influenced by psychological thought and practice both in Australia and internationally, and one in which significant opportunities arise for psychologists to make a valuable contribution to community safety. There is a clear focus in my teaching and research on bringing about change at an individual and community level, and through the development of both skills and knowledge that inform and enhance the delivery of professional psychological services in the criminal justice arena.
