Carleton University, Department of Psychology

Dr. Michael Wohl (Ph.D. Univ. of Alberta, 2003) is a Professor of Psychology at Carleton University.

Research interests: He is the director of two laboratories. In the Carleton University Gambling Laboratory members examine factors that predict problematic gambling behaviour (e.g., persistent play in the face of continued loss), facilitators of responsible gambling (e.g., monetary limit setting and adherence), and means to overcome barriers to behavioural change. In the Conflict Resolution Laboratory members focus on the emotions that stem from harming or being harmed (e.g., angst, guilt) and their effects on attitudes and behaviour. Ultimately, the work in this lab is oriented toward the facilitation of forgiveness and the advancement of reconciliation.
