About Wolfgang Linden

Author #1: Wolfgang Linden is a Full Professor in Clinical Psychology whose work has centered on psychological factors in the etiology, prevention, and treatment of cardiovascular disorders and cancer. He has taught 'Introduction to Clinical Psychology' as a 2-semester, 4th year undergraduate course for over 20 years at the University of British Columbia. His course is organized as a co-op environment such that students spend an additional half-day per week in a clinical or clinical research placement to gather hands-on experience. This teaching model is so appealing to students that the available spots in the course usually fill within 24 hours of open registration. Dr. Linden received clinical training and accumulated clinical experience over three decades, in three countries, and in two languages. He maintains a private practice, has twice served as Director of Clinical Training in UBC's APA/CPA accredited training program, and volunteered a great deal of time for improvements in mental health care delivery. He takes pride in having developed a research program that bridges experimental research in the laboratory with descriptive and intervention studies in clinical populations. Dr. Linden's work has appeared in 6 books and roughly 130 peer-reviewed journal publications and book chapters. Author #2: Dr. Paul L. Hewitt is a Full Professor of Psychology in the Department of Psychology at the University of British Columbia and a practicing Clinical Psychologist in the Vancouver, British Columbia metropolitan area.

He has been conducting research on perfectionism and psychopathology since his undergraduate training and has published over 130 refereed journal articles, 17 chapters, and 3 books. His research and writing focuses extensively on perfectionism and maladaptive outcomes such as suicide, depression, and interpersonal problems, although he also publishes in the suicide and eating disorder literatures. Dr. Hewitt's clinical work tends to focus on individuals experiencing difficulties from perfectionism and conducts workshops, training seminars, symposia, and educational media presentations regarding perfectionism and clinical psychology more generally. He is asked regularly to speak at national and international conferences and meetings on his perfectionism research and treatment.
