He has worked in a mix of settings from urban hospitals, to rural outpatients, through to remote aboriginal communities in the Kimberley. He has presented at national and international conferences, run small parenting groups, and spoken to hundreds in lecture halls. With his colleague Amanda Baker he runs seminars for teacher groups to better understand the strong emotions and tricky behaviours of students and how to manage them. Together they are in the process of writing "The 'Good Enough' Teacher", due out in 2019. He is a visiting lecturer at Melbourne and Monash University, and is involved in the training of future psychiatrists through "mindful". "The 'Good Enough' Parent" is his first book.
