  Graduate school applicants: Because of impending retirement, I am regrettably no longer accepting PhD students.

Where else can you do research on personality and psychopathology?

   There are a number of outstanding Canadian clinical psychologists whose research lies in the broad area of vulnerability to depression and anxiety.  Here's a partial list:

        Myriam Mongrain, York University, Toronto, Ontario

        Darcy Santor, University of Ottawa

        David Dunkley, Department of Psychiatry, McGill University

        Gordon Flett, York University, Toronto, Ontario

        David Clark, University of New Brunswick, Fredericton, NB

        Paul Hewitt, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, British Columbia

        Brian Cox, University of Manitoba

        Simon Sherry, Dalhousie University

        Allison Kelly, Waterloo University

        Mike Bagby, University of Toronto Scarborough


 McGill undergraduate research courses:  I hope to recruit two U-3 Honours students who have already done one honours thesis and want to do a second 9-credit thesis. This years projects will be somewhat demanding and therefore I do not want to recruit students in 380 or in the 6 credit, 1-semester courses such as 395, 396, and 495. One project will connect the literature on personality vulnerability to depression (dependency and self-criticism; Zuroff et al., 2004) and the social psychological literature on forgiveness. The other will link dependency and self-criticism and the social psychological literature on jealousy and/or envy. Personality vulnerability is my area of expertise, but I am not knowledgeable about jealousy and forgiveness. Therefore a significant part of the challenge for students will be to conduct extensive literature reviews on one of these areas. Because of the foci of these projects, I will only consider students who have at least one social psychology course beyond the core course (e.g., 332, 333, 471, 473, 474).

Undergrads interested in my research might also be interested in working in the lab of Dr. David Dunkley.
