John Cunningham received his Ph.D. in experimental psychology from the University of Toronto in 1995. He has spent his career at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and is currently Associate Professor of Psychology and of Public Health Sciences at University of Toronto. His research is driven by the question, “how do people change from addictive behaviours?” To answer this question, John has combined population research methods with clinical and other research traditions. The findings from these studies have been translated into a series of brief interventions for problem drinkers and other drug users that can be applied in treatment or community settings.
