Hugh received a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of British Columbia and a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from the University of Regina. For his master’s thesis, under the supervision of Dr. Heather Hadjistavropoulos, Hugh conducted a meta-analysis of unguided Internet-delivered cognitive behavioural therapy (ICBT) interventions for depression and anxiety and a meta-regression to determine whether persuasive design elements predict treatment efficacy. Hugh is currently continuing his studies in clinical psychology at the doctoral level, also at the University of Regina and under the supervision of Dr. Hadjistavropoulos. For his doctoral dissertation, he is conducting a randomized trial to examine the impact of discussion forums on outcomes in ICBT for public safety personnel. Hugh's primary research interests include the use of ICBT for treating depression, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress among public safety personnel and the role of persuasive design in ICBT.
