  • Not the years in your life, but the life in your years: Lessons from
           Canadian psychology on living fully.
    • Abstract: Over the past couple of decades, there has been an increasing focus on positive psychology in both the popular media and the scientific literature. Prior to this time, the predominant focus has been on what is aberrant or deficient, and how to ameliorate problems or dysfunction (i.e., a psychopathology orientation). Indeed, my own research has focused on cognitive vulnerability to depression and how we can understand and modify underlying core beliefs and cognitive structures. In this article, I deviate from my own “comfort zone” to highlight some key concepts related to understanding what makes life fulfilling and meaningful. Specific lessons from research in the areas of happiness, passion, humour styles, thinking with evidence, self-compassion, mindfulness/acceptance, taking risks, and interpersonal connectedness are reviewed. Throughout this article, I highlight how Canadian psychological science has contributed in important ways to helping us to live more fully.

  • Dissemination: Science and sensibilities.
    • Abstract: This article resulted from the 2017 Canadian Psychological Association award for Distinguished Contributions to the International Advancement of Psychology to the author. The author is a developer of cognitive–behavioural therapies, and has had the good fortune to promote this work in a broad range of countries and cultures. This article presents a dualistic portrayal of dissemination of evidence-based psychotherapy. The article opens with some of the key theoretical and research-based considerations in the development and evaluation of evidence-based practice, and how these issues are manifested in cross-cultural dissemination. The latter part of the article offers a more personal reflection on the sensibilities of cross-cultural dissemination, and offers personal reflections on the practice of dissemination science.

  • Le traitement de l’anxiété généralisée: Plus on en sait, moins on
           en fait.
    • Abstract: In collaboration with my students and colleagues of the past three decades, my research and clinical interests have focused on the aetiology and treatment of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). During my doctoral training at l’Université Laval, our research group developed a cognitive-behavioural treatment that includes four modules: the reevaluation of the usefulness of worry, behavioural exposure to uncertainty, problem-solving training and imaginal exposure. From 1998 to 2013, as professor at Concordia University and scientist-practitioner at l’Hôpital du Sacré-Coeur de Montréal, I conducted a series of clinical trials showing that the treatment is effective for most people with GAD and that the main treatment mechanism is change in intolerance of uncertainty. Given the latter finding, my students and I elaborated a new single-component treatment for GAD: behavioural experiments for intolerance of uncertainty. Since moving to l’Université du Québec en Outaouais in 2013, I have been engaged in testing the new focused treatment. Preliminary data suggest that the single-component treatment produces effects that are similar to those of the earlier multicomponent treatment, while being less costly, easier to disseminate and more closely tied to theories of social learning, cognitive science and neuropsychology. In summary, my work as a scientist, practitioner and teacher over the past 30 years has led me to conclude that simple and parsimonious treatments are preferable in cases where the treatment target is clearly identified. When it comes to clients with GAD, the treatment target seems clear: helping them to increase their tolerance for uncertainty. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Psychological aspects of medical assistance in dying: A personal
           reflection.
    • Abstract: Bill C-14 introduces a new era in end-of-life care by permitting death to be hastened through medical assistance in dying (MAiD). This article reviews those aspects of MAiD that are of particular relevance to psychologists, as seen through the perspective of the author’s research. It includes a brief overview of the major legal cases that led the Supreme Court of Canada to overturn the laws against assisted suicide. It addresses such issues as the prevalence of the desire for death in the terminally ill, reasons for requesting MAiD, the concept of “intolerable suffering,” and the association between MAiD, depression, and suicide. Findings from the Canadian National Palliative Care Survey are highlighted, which document the attitudes of patients receiving palliative care for cancer. Data from the Netherlands, Belgium, and Oregon are also reviewed briefly and contrasted; differences in the incidence of MAiD in these jurisdictions point to the importance of permitting MAiD to be provided by clinicians (euthanasia) rather than requiring patients to self-administer lethal medication (assisted suicide). It is concluded that Bill C-14 aligns with the opinions expressed by the majority of terminally ill participants in the National Palliative Care Survey. It remains to be seen whether new legal challenges will lead to the extension of MAiD to other patient groups. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Work experience, the scientist-practitioner model, and cooperative
           education.
    • Abstract: Cooperative education and the scientist-practitioner model have in common a belief in the value of a period or periods of work related to the academic program of students. This article examines research on the effects of such work in these programs and how the construct of work experience might contribute to our understanding of these effects. It is suggested that outcomes of work experience are more likely to be related to future behaviours if more specific measures are made of experience and its outcomes, such as the number of times a task is performed and the skills learned on the job.

  • University and community acting together to address youth violence and
           gang involvement.
    • Abstract: Youth involvement in violence and criminal gang activities impacts the whole society. It is a multidimensional issue that demands a multilayered systemic response. The goal of this paper is to reflect on the highlights, achievements, and challenges of a research project that brought together a collective of seven academics from four postsecondary institutions, and 11 community groups to address youth involvement in violent and criminal gang activities in their suburban region. This academic and community collaboration included research, training workshops, ongoing dissemination of research knowledge through the academic as well as popular media, and a series of meetings with policymakers to facilitate action strategies targeting prevention. Aligning rigors of academic research with every facet of the community engagement demanded that we all learn to shift gears in our heads and remain willing to step outside of our comfort zones and territories of expertise. While acknowledging the rewards and challenges involved in bridging the academic ways of examining social issues with the community wisdom and actions, we also reflect on the larger ideological as well as practical grounds for pursuing goals that demand a certain commitment to continue past data collection and data analyses to community-wide research impact. The opportunity to become part of the solution to a social problem has led us to conclude that as social scientists we must ensure that our research and its impacts are weighed equally with the involvement of the community at large.

  • Goal pursuit: Current state of affairs and directions for future research.
    • Abstract: Personal goals are ubiquitous in everyday life, with people typically pursuing multiple personal goals at any given time. This article provides a review and synthesis of the vast and varied research on personal goals. A growing body of research shows that goals are best conceptualized as a distinct unit of analysis, with extensive within-person variations in both goal characteristics and attainment. In this article, the authors review existing literature on personal goals, examining the process of goal pursuit from start to finish, including goal setting, goal pursuit and self-regulation, and the outcomes associated with attainment and/or failure. They also address the many aspects of personal goal pursuit that are still poorly understood, highlighting directions for future research. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)

  • Treating insomnia in patients with comorbid psychiatric disorders: A
           focused review.
    • Abstract: Despite its known negative effects on physical and mental health, insomnia is an often-ignored condition. Insomnia is both a risk factor for, and a symptom of, several psychiatric disorders and a predictor of death by suicide, making it an important target for intervention. It is the position of the American College of Physicians and the American Academy of Sleep Medicine that the first-line treatment for sleep continuity disturbance should be Cognitive–Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I); however, medical, psychiatric, and psychological communities remain largely unaware of the existence and effectiveness of this therapy. The purposes of this article are to review the following: (a) literature on the relationship between insomnia and psychological health; (b) official guidelines and recommendations for the treatment of insomnia; (c) typical delivery of CBT-I; (d) evidence for the efficacy of CBT-I in insomnia that occurs cormbid with depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder, and psychotic conditions; and (e) need and opportunities for additional education and training.

  • Rethinking the concept of learning disability.
    • Abstract: Learning disabilities are assumed to result from a neurological disorder that makes it very difficult for children to perform well in school. The unstated assumption is that there is a discontinuity in the distribution in aptitude for academic studies such that these children can be objectively categorised as having a learning disability or not. This assumption is based on an analogy with medical diseases or disorders in which certain tests can indicate whether or not a disease is present. However, this analogy is not appropriate and results in a number of practical problems. An alternate view is presented according to which the efficiency of mental processes required for learning to read or do mathematics varies on a continuum. If there is a continuum, attempts to develop objective criteria for diagnosing learning disabilities will necessarily be arbitrary, and will result in unfairness in provision of special resources. Rather than focusing on diagnosing learning disabilities to determine which children get special help, the suggested goal is to develop curricula in academic subjects that allow for individualized academic programs. In this way, all children would progress at their own pace always being mildly challenged and mastering the material before progressing to new topics.

  • La transformation des saines habitudes de vie liées à l’obésité en
           contexte d’intégration sociale des immigrants récents.
    • Abstract: Tens of thousands of immigrants settle in Quebec each year, an event that produces changes in their lifestyle habits that have a direct impact on the health of those immigrants. As part of a mixed methods study, group interviews were used to isolate variables of behaviour, opinion or values to gain a better understanding of certain characteristics of the migrant’s journey and their effects on lifestyle habits. The analysis of those interviews strongly influenced the construction and validity of a very detailed questionnaire to measure variable on a self-reporting basis. The areas examined were: profiles of acculturation, health, physical activity and food. 506 immigrants responded to the questionnaire and the responses are valid in 90% of the cases. Body measurements (height, weight, waist circumference) were obtained for 274 subjects from a different sample, but from the same population, to determine a body mass index and their weight gain after immigration. Overall, a rather positive picture emerges but in 10% of the cases, the subjects experienced food insecurity and 27% of the sample ate fewer vegetables, fruit, dairy products, legumes and seafood. A developing sedentary lifestyle appears to be the chief cause of increased weight and deteriorating health among the respondents. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)
