Adam Blake is in the final year of his PhD in Clinical Psychology. He is currently creating a scale to measure the subjective experience of mental effort. He hopes this new scale, the Mental Effort Questionnaire (MEQ), will be a useful clinical tool in the treatment of ADHD. Adam also works part-time in private practice. As an integrative therapist, he draws on client-centered, emotion-focused, and cognitive-behavioural therapy to help cients with low mood, self-esteem, anxiety (ocd, social, generalized, panic), ADHD, academic/vocational and relationship concerns.
He is the recipient of two NSERC Research Awards and a SSHRC Doctoral Fellowship.
