Position Overview

The Clinical Health Psychology Program is responsible for psychological services in WRHA and Shared Health facilities and clinics across the lifespan, from the very young to the elderly. The Program is dedicated to providing timely, evidence-based psychological consult, assessment, and treatment for a range of mental health and acute & chronic medical conditions, in health region settings that span hospitals, health centres, and primary care clinics.

Responsibilities and clinical population for the Psychologist in Adult Services vary depending on the specifics of the position, and may include some of the following aspects:

  • psychodiagnostic and cognitive assessment.
  • individual or group treatment flexibly incorporating a number of evidence-based intervention approaches.
  • work with interdisciplinary teams, inpatient, outpatient or community clinical care and clinical service development.
  • consultation to/supervision with clinical staff and trainees as appropriate.

 

This position involves providing leadership in a community-based mental health team (Behaviour Resource and Consultation Team -BRaCT) which provides behavior management plans and implementation guidance for support staff who work with adults with chronic, complex mental health presentations. In this 0.5 EFT role, the Psychologist would provide clinical evaluation, behavioral plan development, and consultation for implementation to community clinicians and support workers who provide care to individuals with behavior challenges (e.g. verbal and physical aggression, medication adherence) in supportive housing. The role also includes clinical consultation to other mental health professionals in the housing support community and long-term care community who provide services on behalf of the WRHA; the role can involve service development as well as staff training to facilitate capacity building.

The position can be flexibly expanded to full time with an additional 0.5 EFT in Generalist-Adult Services to provide assessment and evidence-based treatment, rotating approximately annually in clinical areas, related to service needs in the CHP Program. The Psychologist provides psychodiagnostic and cognitive assessments, clinical evaluation, and individual or group treatment for a range of clinical conditions. The CHP program offers supervision and mentoring to facilitate mastery in newer areas of practice. The role also involves clinical consultation to other health professionals.

For both roles there may be opportunities for clinical teaching with residents in our CPA-accredited residency training program.
