Dr. Howard’s research centers around improving research methodology in several applied areas of psychology. His research with assertion training, communication skills, interviewing skills, teaching improvement, and social skills training suggests that several traditional research practices are inadequate to many of the tasks to which they are put. These inadequacies often result in misleading or incorrect conclusions. More appropriate alternative research procedures are then developed, and the adequacy of these innovations documented. By thus expanding and updating our research methodologies, social scientists are better able to conduct more sensitive and accurate evaluation efforts.
