About The Author:
David A. Moscovitch received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology in 2006 from Boston University. He is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of Waterloo (UW), where he holds the Canada Research Chair in Mental Health Research, serves as the Executive Director of the UW Centre for Mental Health Research, and teaches and supervises graduate students at UW’s CPA-accredited Doctoral Training Program in Clinical Psychology. Dr. Moscovitch specializes in the research and treatment of anxiety disorders, with a particular focus on CBT models of social anxiety.
Drawing upon both clinical observation and a variety of experimental methods, Dr. Moscovitch and his students investigate how socially anxious individuals view themselves and appraise others, and how these perceptions influence the way they process social information, remember and imagine interpersonal events, regulate their emotional, behavioural, and biological responses to social stress, and respond to psychological interventions. He has published widely on these and related topics. Finally, Dr. Moscovitch is a proponent of the scientist-practitioner model and a CACBT-credentialed CBT clinician. He maintains a small but active private practice.
