Clinical Psychology at the University of Toronto Scarborough (UTSC) adheres to the Clinical Science model of training (see Kazdin, 2008; McFall, 1991). The central tenet of the clinical science model of training is that scientific method and evidence are the core of clinical psychology. We follow a generalist model of training, with a primary focus on adults. Our program also maintains that clinical scientists are best trained through a mentorship model. We provide instruction in psychopathology, assessment and intervention.
Faculty at UTSC have research expertise and provide graduate training in:
- clinical and cognitive neuroscience
- psychological assessment & clinical neuropsychology
- psychopathology (including psychosis and mood disorders)
- mindfulness- and acceptance-based psychotherapies
Distinguished by our innovative cross-disciplinary approach to clinical science, we emphasize innovation through novel research programs that push traditional boundaries in psychological clinical research and practice. To learn more, download our Brochure.
