Program Description

Since establishing The CAP Centre in 2008, Drs. Moulton and Chapnik have prioritized training and mentorship. The large clinical team, all working at one site, comprised of current interns, practicum students, and other clinicians trained Psychology at various stages of their careers, provides opportunities for peer consultation and collegiality that is perhaps unique in a private practice setting.

The CAP Centre offers interns a set of rich and diverse clinical experiences, having establishing itself in York Region as a go-to resource for children, adolescents and their families. As such, The CAP Centre has a large pool of potential clients of all ages and presentations for trainees to work with.

Major rotations (one in assessment and one in intervention) focus on training in assessment and treatment of learning, emotional, behavioural, and social-developmental disorders in cients from preschool to university age. Experience and training in family intervention / therapy as well as assessment and treatment of ASD are the focus of minor rotations. A component of training focuses on the development of relevant practical, ethical, clinical and client management skills necesary for private practice. However, the internship will prepare candidates to thrive in a range of future positions, not only private practice, but also within community mental health centres, hospitals or school boards. 

The CAP Centre was accredited with the Canadian Psychological Association in 2022 for a period of 4 years.
