Short Bio:

By training, I received a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Syracuse University in 1968. I joined the Department of Psychiatry at McMaster University after graduating, and then also became a member of the Department of Clinical Epidemiology & Biostatistics at McMaster. Between 1974 and 1986, I was the Chief Psychologist at the McMaster University Medical Centre, and chaired both the Research and Clinical Ethics Committees. After 30 years at McMaster, I retired for one day, and became the founding Director of the Applied Research Unit and the Assistant V.P. of Research at the Baycrest Centre, and a Professor in the Psychiatry Department at the University of Toronto, with cross-appointments in the faculties of Nursing, Social Work, and Rehabilitation. I retired from Baycrest after 11 years, but remain on faculty at both universities. I was one of the founding editors of Evidence-Based Mental Health and was also the Senior Scientific Editor of Health Reports. I sit on the editorial boards of nine other journals, including Assessment, The Canadian Journal of Behavioural Sciences, the Journal of Personality Assessment, and Chest. I have written or edited 9 books, in the areas of statistics, epidemiology, public health, and measurement theory, including Biostatistics: The Bare Essentials and Health Measurement Scales. I have published over 450 articles in these and other areas. My main interests are quality of life in people with various medical conditions, woodworking, scale development, woodworking, research design, woodworking, treatment of the homeless mentally ill, and woodworking.

Coffee and tea will be provided, beginning at 1:00 p.m.
