About Catherine Gildiner: 

Gildiner did a Ph.D. on Darwin’s influence on Freud. She was a psychologist for 25 years in Toronto, while also writing for various newspapers and magazines. She was on an international rowing team for fifteen years and owns a working farm. When not at her farm she, lives mostly in Toronto with her husband. She has three grown sons.

About Good Morning Monster: A Therapist Shares Five Heroic Stories of Emotional Recovery: 

In Good Morning, Monster, Gildiner focuses on five patients who overcame enormous trauma--people she considers heroes. With a novelist's storytelling gift, Gildiner recounts the details of their struggles, their paths to recovery, and her own tale of growth as a therapist.

The five cases include a successful but lonely musician suffering sexual dysfunction; a young woman whose father abandoned her and her siblings in a rural cottage; an Indigenous man who'd endured great trauma at a residential school; a young woman whose abuse at the hands of her father led to a severe personality disorder; and a glamorous workaholic whose negligent mother had greeted her each morning with "Good morning, Monster."

Each patient presents a mystery, one that will only be unpacked over years. They seek Gildiner's help to overcome an immediate challenge in their lives, but discover that the source of their suffering has been long buried. It will take courage to face those realities, and creativity and resourcefulness from their therapist.
