October 29, 2010
Dr. Louisa B. Gembora, Clinical Psychologist, presented on " Drivers - Behaviour, Perception, Personality”. Delays caused by road congestion increases driver frustration and impatience and often precipitate a lack of courtesy toward other road users. A central issue regarding the promotion of active transportation is how to safely share the road right-of-way among cars, trucks, bicyclists and pedestrians.

Dr. Gembora will address a number of related factors from the perspective of her practice involving Clinical, Forensic, and Rehabilitation Psychology plus her experience as a race car driver as well as instructing and coaching high performance driving. She enjoys showing the average driver and the competitive racer how to improve their cognitive agility, focus, accuracy and efficiency of thinking with respect to attention, working memory, and executive decision-making while helping them learn to control emotions such as fear, anger, and excitement. For several years she has been one of the judges on the TV show, Canada’s Worst Driver.
