Dr. Michael Sullivan is currently Professor of Psychology and Medicine at McGill University, and Scientific Director of the University Centre for Research on Pain and Disability. He has lectured nationally and internationally on the social and behavioral determinants of pain-related disability. He is known primarily for his research on the relation between catastrophic thinking and pain experience, and for the development of community-based approaches to the management of pain-related disability. Dr. Sullivan developed the Pain Catastrophizing Scale (PCS) in 1995. The PCS has been used in more than 200 scientific studies, it is translated into 10 languages and is currently the most widely used measure of catastrophic thinking related to pain. Dr. Sullivan also developed the Pain-Disability Prevention (PDP) Program and the Progressive Goal Attainment Program (PGAP); the first two community-based intervention programs designed specifically to target psychosocial risk factors for pain-related disability. Dr. Sullivan has published over 100 scientific papers, 12 chapters, and 4 books. He currently holds a Canada Research Chair in Behavioral Health. Dr. Sullivan obtained his undergraduate training at McGill University and his graduate training at Concordia University in Montreal.
