|Description:||The Ph.D. program in Clinical Psychology is fully accredited by the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA). The mission of the graduate clinical program is to pursue excellence in psychological research, professional education, and training, as well as public and community service. We are committed to fostering a community of intellectual excellence that promotes an evolving understanding of psychological science and the provision of high-quality graduate education and training in the profession of psychology. The programs strive to develop and nurture skills within our students that are grounded in science, critical thinking, and ethics, so that they may serve as competent researchers, clinicians and educators. We are dedicated to increasing the scientific understanding of the behaviour of individuals, groups and social systems, and to the application of this understanding to enhance the functioning and well-being of individuals, groups and societies.
The programs adhere closely to the scientist-practitioner model of training and practice in psychology. Specifically, we subscribe to the view that the practitioner who can critically evaluate these research findings will make the soundest contributions to society and the profession by supporting evidence-based practice. Similarly, a clinical researcher who is knowledgeable about best practices will make the most significant contribution to clinical research.
