Dr. Douglas French (Ph.D. L.Psych.)
A proud native of New Brunswick, Dr. French obtained his Ph.D. in psychology from Laval University in 1995. He went on to complete post-doctoral studies in the area of pain at Ohio University where he further cemented his interest in the physical and psychological factors related to the experience of pain and how these factors can help or hinder the quality of life of individuals suffering from chronic pain.
Dr. French has been a licensed psychologist since 1997 and was a full professor of Clinical Psychology at the Université de Moncton before deciding to devote his energy and enthusiasm to full time clinical practice at the Atlantic Pain Clinic. He has published extensively in the area of pain and his research has appeared in national and international psychology and medicine journals.
As the director of psychology at the Atlantic Pain Clinic in Moncton New Brunswick, Dr. French manages ongoing research at the clinic and provides psychology assessment and treatment services to both individuals and groups undergoing functional restoration.
In addition to his primary interests in pain, Dr. French also has expertise in the diagnosis and treatment of Depression and Anxiety Disorders with a particular interest in PTSD. Personally, he enjoys salmon fishing, struggling with his golf game and talking about pain.
