Dr. Wright uses an integrative approach adapted to each couple's specific needs. Their priorities, history, life stresses and traumas, personalities, individual difficulties, compatibility, commitment and motivation to change with therapy are taken into account. Assessment and therapy sessions are adapted to the complex reality of each couple in order to optimize their prognosis.
Dr. John Wright obtained his bachelor’s degree in psychology from McGill University before completing his Ph.D. in clinical psychology at the University of Wisconsin in 1972. He taught in McGill’s psychology and psychiatry departments from 1972 to 1978, and then at Université de Montréal’s department of psychology where he directed a research and consultation team specializing in couple psychology and therapy.
In addition to this experience, he worked as a clinician in various specialized clinics, namely at University of Wisconsin, Douglas Hospital, Royal Victoria Hospital and now at CCCF since 1985. He has published over 70 scientific articles and book chapters. He authored the best seller “Survival Strategies for Couples” (1985) and co-authored the Manuel clinique des psychothérapies de couple (2008) with his colleagues Dr. Yvan Lussier and Dr. Stéphane Sabourin. In recognition of his contributions to couple therapy, he received the Noël Mailloux Prize from the Ordre des psychologues du Québec and was appointed Professor Emiritus from Université of Montreal.
