About the Presenters:

Dr. Margaret McKinnon, PhD, C.Psych. is Associate Co-Chair - Research, Department of Psychiatry & Behavioural Neurosciences; Psychologist and Academic Head, Mood Disorders Program, St. Joseph’s Healthcare Associate Professor, Psychiatry & Behavioural Neurosciences; Senior Scientist, Homewood Research Institute; Fellow, Canadian Psychological Association

Dr. McKinnon's research focuses on the interplay between cognitive and emotional processes at the neural and behavioral level. She is particularly interested in how emotion and cognition relate to autobiographical memory and social cognition, two areas of function commonly affected by neurological illness or insult. Most of her research has been conducted in special populations, including patients with frontotemporal dementia, medial temporal lobe amnesia and post-traumatic stress disorder, along with normally aging adults. With her collaborators in the Mood Disorders Program, she is interested in identifying differences in autobiographical memory for highly emotional events (e.g., an airplane accident) and in social cognitive (e.g., theory of mind and empathy) performance between people with and without mood disorders and/or trauma exposure. An additional research focus concerns the neural mechanisms underlying these differences and the testing of treatment interventions aimed at reducing cognitive dysfunction in patients with psychiatric illness.

Dr. McKinnon received her Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of Toronto in 2003 and subsequently completed her postdoctoral fellowship at the Rotman Research Institute. She holds or has held competitive grant funding from the Bickell Foundation, Canadian Institutes of Health Research, Canadian Institute for Military and Veteran’s Health Research, the National Institute for Mental Health, NARSAD, and OMHF.

Dr. Mary Motz, PhD, C. Psych. is a registered Clinical Psychologist at Mothercraft’s Breaking the Cycle Program in Toronto.

Dr. Motz’s clinical experience is in the area of assessment and treatment of infants and young children whose development and mental health is at risk due to maternal substance misuse, as well as the related systemic factors and determinants of health. Her primary research interests are related to the mechanisms by which vulnerable mothers are able to make changes to improve their own lives and the lives of their infants and young children.

Robert T. Muller, Ph.D. trained at Harvard, was on faculty at the University of Massachusetts, and is currently at York University in Toronto. Dr. Muller is a Fellow of the International Society for the Study of Trauma & Dissociation (ISSTD) for his work on trauma treatment. His new book is "Trauma & the Struggle to Open Up." And his bestseller, "Trauma & the Avoidant Client," has been translated widely, and won the 2011 ISSTD award for the year's best written work on trauma. As lead investigator on several multi-site programs to treat interpersonal trauma, Dr. Muller has lectured internationally (Australia, UK, Europe, USA), and has been keynote speaker at mental health conferences in New Zealand and Canada. He founded an online magazine, "The Trauma & Mental Health Report," that is now visited by over 100,000 readers a year. With over 25 years in the field, he practices in Toronto.
