The students and faculty gathered in the Centre for Mental Health Research on September 29, 2017 to bid farewell to our CMHR Director, Dr. Ian Nicholson. We are grateful to Ian for his dedicated service to CMHR training and education, clinical services, and research.
The Centre for Mental Health Research was pleased to host Dr. Carole Sinclair for a workshop on “Revisions to the Canadian Code of Ethics for Psychologists, Fourth Edition (CPA, 2017)". Dr. Sinclair, chair for the last several years of the Canadian Psychological Association Ethics Committee, walked through the history of the code and how it has developed to meet the needs of our profession in Canada.
The Centre for Mental Health Research is proud that the important service with refugee mental health provided by one of the Department of Psychology's doctoral student's, Brenda Chiang, and one of our adjunct faculty, Dr. Nicole Ethier, is highlighted in the current issue of the Faculty of Arts's publication for its alumni and friends, Arts & Letters.
Earlier this month, at the Canadian Psychological Association’s 78th National Convention in Toronto, the University of Waterloo’s Clinical Psychology students were a strong presence. Our students were involved in 9 posters and 3 talks during the three days of the convention at the Fairmont Royal York.
