Tribute to Dr. John Walker

Dr. John Walker had a passion for providing evidence-based treatments for anxiety and related disorders. In keeping with this passion, he co-founded The Cognitive Behavior Institute of Manitoba with the vision of being a centre of excellence in CBT-based treatments.  He believed that conducting research and providing evidence-based training for new clinicians were important ways to serve the community and he was greatly involved in both.  In each endeavour, Dr. Walker brought exceptional kindness and compassion to everything he did.  Sadly, Dr. Walker passed away in 2018 but his values live on in us at CBTI as we continue to keep his legacy alive.
