Doctoral research was conducted through a four year longitudinal study of school children's writing development and that work led to the publications of Writing Development-Magic in the Brain (Open University Press, 1991). The model of writing development elaborated in that book is used in teacher education courses. From that longitudinal study she elaborated a concept of psychodynamic pedagogy, which has been developed over the past decade into a theory of empathic intelligence. Professor Arnold has supervised a number of Ph.D projects in areas of writing development, psychodynamic pedagogy, English education and drama in education.
