Position: Author
Emma Pivato spent her childhood in a rural area in northeastern Alberta but has lived most of her adult life in Edmonton. She earned an MA in Philosophy and a Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from the University of Alberta and worked for twenty years as an assessment and counseling psychologist before joining Athabasca University, a distance learning institute, in 2004. She teaches in their Interdisciplinary Studies program and does most of her work from home. Emma lives with her husband, Joe Pivato, and younger daughter, Alexis, who has multiple challenges. The various efforts involved in organizing a positive life for her daughter have provided some of the background context for this book. Emma is the editor of Different Hopes, Different Dreams, (1984, 1990), a collection of Alberta stories about the impact on the family of raising a child with developmental challenges.
