Dale has a particular interest in research methods and statistics for psychology in general, continuing to develop his skills using the R statistical environment for data analyses. For his doctoral thesis, Dale will be using vignettes based on Finkelhor’s model of child sexual abuse to investigate the variables which predict the ability of professionals, parents and the general public to spot the signs of child sexual abuse in perpetrator behaviour.


Dale received his BSc (Hons) in Psychology from Swansea University. He recently completed an MSc in Psychological Research Methods at Lancaster University. While at Lancaster, Dale also worked as a research assistant on a project looking at how self-persuasion could be used alter people’s attitudes towards meat consumption. Dale has since commenced PhD studies at the University of Chester.
