CBT Associates Clinical Psychology Residency Program is one of the first exclusively in a private practice setting. We currently have three resident positions that we select from some of the most qualified candidates across Canada and the United States. The Clinical Psychology Residency Program is committed to the Scientist-Practitioner model, which is reflected through the use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) as our main treatment modality.
Research has indicated that the way we think and behave powerfully affects our emotions. CBT helps clients change their negative and anxious thoughts and behaviours, so they can feel and function better, in order to improve quality of life. Rigorous clinical trials have proven that CBT is effective in improving symptoms of depression, anxiety, psychosis, amongst other conditions.
Through an evidence-based education, Residents will learn how to collaborate with clients to design personalized case conceptualizations and treatment plans that may also integrate a number of related therapeutic approaches. These include, but are not limited to, Motivational Interviewing (MI), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness Meditation, Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT), and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). Residents within our program are encouraged to anchor their clinical service in a thorough review of existing scientific literature and evaluate their interventions systematically.
CBT Associates is committed to assisting Residents in developing advanced clinical skills in CBT and provide effective and evidence-based treatment to clients. This immersive experience will ensure that Residents develop assessment, treatment, consultation and ethical skills to prepare them to work as independent practitioners.
