Research interests include parent abuse (also known as child to parent violence, where individuals under the age of
18 years old use violence at home) violence within the family and the effective engagement of clients who deny that
there is a problem leading to the involvement of social work or allied services. Declan is also interested in the
effective engagement of individuals who deny that he/she has any role in changing the circumstances that led to a
referral to services (sometimes called resistant clients or clients in denial). He continues to have an interest in work
with young people who have sexually abused and their families. He has published articles and facilitated workshops
and seminars in the areas of child to parent violence, domestic violence, child protection, therapeutic interventions
and preventing and responding to child sexual abuse perpetrated by young people. He supervises Masters of Arts in
Social Work students during their practice placements and supervises students in their research activities and
