- Author BiographyGrant T. Harris, PhD, is adjunct associate professor of psychology at Queen's University at Kingston, Canada and adjunct professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto, Canada. He is a fellow of the Canadian Psychological Association, received the Career Contribution Award from the Criminal Justice Section of the Canadian Psychological Association, and is a member of the research group awarded the Amethyst Award for Outstanding Achievement by Ontario Public Servants. Dr. Harris has been awarded several competitive research grants and has published more than 150 scholarly works on the topics of actuarial violence risk assessment, sexual aggression, psychopathy, and the assessment and treatment of offenders and psychiatric clients. For each topic, the work has long addressed four issues: risks for the phenomenon, appropriate intervention, translation of knowledge for practitioners, and policy implications of the findings. Marnie E. Rice, PhD, is a fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, Canada's highest academic accolade. She has worked at Waypoint Centre for Mental Health Care (formerly called the Mental Health Centre Penetanguishene) for 40 years as a clinical psychologist, researcher, and, for 14 years, director of research. She is currently Research Director Emerita and continues her research part time. Dr. Rice is also professor of psychiatry and behavioural neurosciences (part time) at McMaster University, Canada, professor of psychiatry (adjunct) at the University of Toronto, and associate professor of psychology (adjunct) at Queen's University, Canada. She has more than 150 scientific publications, including approximately 30 on the topic of violence risk assessment. She has been the recipient of many awards, including APA's Award for Distinguished Contribution to Research in Public Policy and the Career Contribution Award from the Criminal Justice Section of the Canadian Psychological Association. Vernon L. Quinsey, PhD, is Professor Emeritus of psychology, biology, and psychiatry at Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario, Canada and former director of research at the Penetanguishene, Ontario, Canada, Mental Health Centre. He is a recipient of a Significant Achievement Award from the Association for the Treatment of Sexual Abusers, a Career Contribution Award from the Criminal Justice Section of the Canadian Psychological Association, and the Donald Hebb Award for contributions to psychology as a science from the Canadian Psychological Association. Catherine A. Cormier, BA, was for many years a research and clinical psychometrist with the Research Department at the Mental Health Centre Penetanguishene, now the Waypoint Centre. Her work was devoted to research, and clinical assessment and treatment for violent offenders, particularly sex offenders and psychopaths. Ms. Cormier and her colleagues also developed the Ontario Domestic Assault Risk Assessment, the actuarial prediction instrument for domestic assaulters in conjunction with the Ontario Provincial Police, provincial corrections, and emergency clinics. Her last project involved the evaluation of the implementation of an evidence-based, integrated 3-month treatment for people with substance abuse and concurrent psychiatric diagnoses. She was a member of the former research team that received several awards, including the Outstanding Achievement by Ontario Public Servants. She is forever grateful for the immeasurable knowledge gained from having worked for many years with her fellow authors and friends.
