About the author (2005)

Benjamin L. Hankin (Ph.D., Clinical Psychology, University of Wisconsin, Madison) is a clinical psychologist at the University of South Carolina . His primary areas include development of depression in children, adolescents, and young adults; cognitive vulnerability-stress models of depression; developmental psychopathology; gender differences in depression; and comorbidity of depression and other psychiatric disorders. He is particularly interested in research aimed at applying cognitive risk factors to predict depression and anxiety during adolescence and young adulthood and in understanding the developmental origins or cognitive vulnerability to depression. His research also examines the mechanisms through which various developmental precursors of risk, such as personality traits and maltreatment, may operate to contribute to vulnerability to psychopathology. He regularly teaches the basic undergraduate course on Abnormal Psychology as well as graduate courses on developmental psychopathology, theory and research of psychotherapy, and techniques of psychological intervention.

John R.Z. Abela received a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania in 1999. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Psychology at McGill University, where he studies vulnerability to depression in children and adolescents. At the same time, he is a staff psychologist at Montreal Children's Hospital, where he also serves as Director of the Cognitive Behavior Therapy Clinic. At a young age, he has already established a name for himself. He received the Young Investigator Award from NARSAD in 2000 and again in 2003 and received the Young Psychologist Award at the XXVII International Congress of Psychology in July 2000.
