Dominique Morisano, PhD, CPsych, is an Independent Scientist at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in the Provincial System Support Program, an affiliate scientist in the Social and Epidemiological Research Department, and an Assistant Professor at the Dalla Lana School of Public Health, University of Toronto. She is also a licensed clinical psychologist (children, adolescents, and adults) in both ON and NY. She completed her MA and PhD at McGill University, as well as a postdoctoral clinical research fellowship (in Addiction Psychiatry and Schizophrenia) at CAMH and the University of Toronto's Department of Psychiatry. Prior to joining CAMH as a scientist in 2011, she worked in NYC at St. Luke's-Roosevelt Hospital (SLR) directing research within SLR's Child and Family Institute, teaching/supervising, and providing direct psychological services for adolescents and families in Harlem suffering from complex mental illness and substance-use disorders. Over the past 2.5 years at CAMH, she has worked as an implementation scientist, studying methods that promote the systematic uptake of clinical research findings and other evidence-based practices into routine clinical care, in order to improve the quality of social services. More recently, she has begun collaborative work with CAMH's Aboriginal Community Engagement unit on several projects. She is particularly interested in co-occurring disorders, moving evidence to action, and making a difference in client outcomes both at the individual and system levels.
