Marjorie Aunos, Ph.D.
Psychologist and Researcher
Marjorie Aunos, Ph.D. is a psychologist and researcher from Montreal, Canada. Her expertise is working with parents who have intellectual disabilities. She has published a number of book chapters and peer-reviewed articles on this topic. In 2012, she sustained a Spinal Cord Injury in a car accident. Mother to a 16 month old at the time, the accident and subsequent injury gave her an interesting perspective on parenting and disability. Grieving her ‘old self’ came to be harder than she thought until she learned about Positive Psychology and Character Strengths. Unequivocally, her Love for her son saved her and the Love of Learning helped her understand how.
