Dr. Candice Monson Named one of "Canada's Great Gets" in Toronto Star!

Dr. Candice Monson, Partner at EBT3, was named one of "Canada's Great Gets" in the November 22, 2015 edition of the Toronto Star. The article discusses how Canada has begun reversing the issue of "brain drain," which refers to the movement of top Canadian talent to the United States. In fact, the article notes that "Canada's research excellence ecosystem is better than it ever has been at retaining and attracting top talent."

As the article notes, Dr. Monson comes from being a professor of psychiatry at Boston University School of Medicine, as well as the deputy director of Women's Health Sciences Division of the National Center for PTSD at Boston VA Healthcare System.

Congrats Dr. Monson, EBT3 (and Ryerson) are lucky to have you!

Dr. Monson publishes new book!

Congratulations to Dr. Monson, who recently published her newest book, "Treating PTSD With Cognitive-Behavioral Therapies: Interventions That Work".

About the book:

Backed by decades of research, cognitive behavioral therapy is the intervention of choice for clients with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) regardless of their age, gender, ethnicity, or source of symptoms. This compact, clinician-friendly resource walks readers through cognitive behavioral techniques and treatment packages for PTSD, using case studies to illustrate how to troubleshoot common problems.

Explaining each approach's theoretical underpinnings as well as its step-by-step implementation, the authors cover both trauma-focused techniques such as prolonged exposure, cognitive processing therapy, and stress inoculation training, and non-trauma-focused or present-centered techniques such as breathing training, relaxation training, and positive self-talk. The book also addresses depression and social isolation, symptoms that often accompany PTSD.
