Dr. Paula C. Miceli

Paula Miceli completed her Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology in 2015, and is currently completing her supervised clinical practice in the Greater Toronto area. She began her career as a biological scientist, and completed her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in this field. She conducted physiological studies of inflammation-induced neural changes in the gastrointestinal tract. Her interests in clinical research led to a position with a pharmaceutical company, where she led industry-sponsored drug efficacy studies in post-surgical pain and urgency incontinence in Canada. Her work has been published in journals including Pain Research and Management, British Journal of Urology International, Journal of Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology, American Journal of Physiology, Clinical Therapeutics, and Autonomic Neuroscience. While conducting her doctoral studies, Dr. Miceli supervised many undergraduate psychology research projects, and instructed third and fourth year courses in health psychology. She is currently a guest editor with the Journal of Phenomenological Psychology. One of her continued interests is to enhance the translation of health-related knowledge for psychologists and psychotherapists who work with medical patients, as well as for general audiences. Currently, she writes and publishes on the topics of urgency incontinence and temporomandibular joint disorders.
