Lisa Jewett, MSc

PhD Student

Photo of Lisa JewettLisa completed her MSc in Psychiatry and BA in Honours Psychology at McGill University. During her Masters research, Lisa worked alongside the Canadian Scleroderma Research Group (CSRG) to examine body image and appearance-related concerns among people with disfigurement from the rare, chronic disease systemic sclerosis (scleroderma). As part of this research, she identified important body image concerns for patients and validated a measurement tool that addresses common issues related to physical appearance experienced by patients.

Lisa is currently completing her PhD in Counselling Psychology at McGill University and has continued to pursue her research and clinical interests related to appearance concerns, psychosocial issues, and quality of life among people with scleroderma and those with visible differences. Her Doctoral research involves the validation of a measurement tool that assesses body image avoidance in scleroderma; an exploration of the impact of scleroderma on patients’ social, work, and family roles; and an evaluation of interventions designed to address social anxiety and appearance concerns among people with visible differences.

Lisa is also a trainee with the Scleroderma Patient-centered Intervention Network (SPIN); an emerging international team of researchers, clinicians, scleroderma patients, and patient advocates devoted to developing and implementing patient-centered care that targets important issues related to quality of life and well-being among people with scleroderma.

Photo of Isabelle Leduc-CummingsIsabelle completed her Bachelor’s degree in Honours Psychology and her M.A. in Counselling Psychology at McGill University. She is currently pursuing a PhD in Counselling Psychology at McGill University, under the supervision of Dr. Martin Drapeau and Dr. Marina Milyavskaya.

Isabelle’s principal line of research is grounded in self-determination theory, and focuses on motivation and the experience of obstacles in goal pursuit. More precisely, she investigates how autonomous vs. controlled motivation influences the subjective vs. objective experience of obstacles, and (subsequent) goal attainment. Isabelle is also interested in the self-regulatory strategies that individuals use in the process of goal pursuit when anticipating and encountering obstacles, such as situation selection.
