Clinical psychologists promote optimal levels of psychological functioning to decrease levels of psychological distress. They have expertise in the assessment, diagnosis, treatment and prevention of a broad range of emotional and behavioural problems including anxiety, depression, stress, substance addiction and abuse, adjustment to physical illness, relationship difficulties and learning disabilities. This program provides knowledge and professional skills in the area of clinical psychology through a combination of coursework, supervised practice, and research. Students gain a foundation in the scientific bases and practice of clinical psychology. The training in clinical practice employs evidence-based best practice models in health and mental health settings.
