inding balance in life can be difficult, especially when Fdealing with challenges such as posttraumatic stress
disorder (PTSD), anxiety or chronic pain.
World-renowned clinical psychologist Dr. Gordon Asmundson
has dedicated his career to identifying, understanding and
treating anxiety disorders and chronic musculoskeletal pain.
His pioneering work in this field was recognized by the
Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) when they selected
him to receive their highest honor: the 2014 Donald O. Hebb
Award. The award is presented to CPA members or fellows
whose research has enhanced the knowledge base of
psychology, who demonstrate leadership as a teacher or
theorist; and whose work has substantially influenced the
development of psychology.
Asmundson says, "True gratification comes from knowing that
my peers hold in such high esteem the products of the work
my team and I are doing at the University of Regina to
understand and alleviate various forms of human suffering.”
The award will be presented at the upcoming CPA Convention
in June, at which time Asmundson will be invited to present
an address to members.
