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.
