He has received international recognition for his research as well as support from national and international granting agencies.
Throughout his 31-year career at the University of New Brunswick, Dr. McDonnell was a professional child clinical psychologist. His practice is viewed as a model for others in the field and - through more than 80 invited talks and workshops - he has enhanced the impact of clinical psychology in New Brunswick and helped parents and professionals alike.
Dr. McDonnell's professional and academic endeavours have been critical to the development of the university's graduate program in clinical psychology. A popular and award-winning teacher, he continues to be sought as a supervisor by graduate students.
