The Clinical Psychology: Applied Developmental Emphasis graduate program in the Department of Psychology has been re-accredited by the Canadian Psychological Association for the next six years.
The program focuses on the developmental paths of children and youth experiencing psychological disorders within the contexts of family, school and community. Student training follows a scientist-practitioner model in which an integrated series of courses and practica at the master’s and PhD levels contribute to the acquisition of competence as both child clinicians and researchers. Students take on cases in the department’s Centre for Psychological Services and complete off-campus practica in hospitals, mental health settings and schools under the supervision of registered psychologists.
This training prepares students for registration as psychologists with provincial licensing boards.
