Research and Training
Our staff is strongly committed to the enhancement of psychology as a profession through continuing staff education and leadership in organizations devoted to professional growth. Psychology Staff includes 20 full-time and 4 part-time psychologists, 1 psychological associate, 5 psychometrists, and a number of support staff and research assistants. We also have 2 psychologists who are full-time faculty with Western University. Despite diverse services and different geographic locales, Psychology maintains its cohesion as a profession through regular meetings and rounds.
As clinicians, we are committed to the promotion of health in its broadest sense, including the enhancement of physical, emotional, cognitive, and social well-being. Compassion and care, coupled with clinical innovation, are distinguishing features of our patient service. Integrated, comprehensive health care is emphasized through program-based management and inter-professional teamwork.
Psychologists at LHSC provide clinical psychology and neuropsychology services through consultation, assessment, diagnostic, and treatment services to a wide variety of adult and child/adolescent inpatient and outpatient programs, for individuals and their families. Clinical referrals reflect a diversity of patient needs and staff expertise. Assessment strategies include cognitive, behavioural, personality, and neuropsychological approaches; therapeutic modalities include individual, group, and family work; and theoretical orientations include cognitive-behavioural, developmental, and eclectic approaches. Psychologists serve as valued consultants to physicians and other health care professionals, both within the hospital and throughout the community.
London Clinical Psychology Residency Consortium
The London Clinical Psychology Residency Consortium emphasizes clinical service, teaching, and research. The aim of the program is to prepare residents for post-doctoral supervised practice in psychology, particularly within the health care system. This aim is pursued through identification of individual interests, enhancement of strengths, and broadening areas of clinical interest and skill.
