The Psychology Department invites applications from qualified applicants for a Clinical Supervisor to teach Psych 5091, MA Practicum.  This is a new opportunity in support of a Psychology Training Clinic Pilot being conducted by the Clinical Psychology Programs. This is a 0.75 FCE contract (10 hours/week for 16 weeks) for the Fall 2021 term.

The Clinical Supervisor will provide practicum training to junior clinical psychology students in a pilot Psychology Training Clinic. The Clinical Supervisor will be supported by a Clinic Director who will assist in identifying and screening clinic clients and provide general infrastructure support.

Experience with experiential learning and online or alternative modes of delivery is highly desired. Experience with differentiated instruction is highly desired.

The course description is below:

  • The overall purpose of this placement is to provide trainees with skills and practice in developing therapeutic relationships, basic intervention skills practice, and appropriate clinical documentation. The type of clinical training will depend on the Clinical Supervisor’s practice area(s) and competencies, as well as the service needs identified by our community stakeholders.
  • The Clinical Supervisor will provide clinical supervision to 5 students (the placement will first be offered to entry-level students in our MA Year 2 cohort, and remaining spots filled by upper-year students).
  • There may be an opportunity for 1-2 senior (doctoral) students to gain experience with supervision (“supervision of supervision”); dependent on the clinical service and Clinical Supervisor’s skill set.
  • In addition to providing formally scheduled clinical supervision, the clinical supervisor will review trainee documentation and reports, as relevant to the clinical service provided.
  • We anticipate that this practicum opportunity will provide 25% of MA students’ practicum hours required for their degree (i.e., a 100-hour placement). It will also better-prepare students for external practicum placements. 
  • The Clinical Supervisor will have access to Owl Practice Management Software through our Psychology Training Clinic, which supports scheduling of client appointments, clinical documentation, video sessions, and has many clinical supervision functions (e.g., documentation review; video review).  

Applicants must be registered with the College of Psychologists of Ontario; preference will be for applicants with a doctorate in clinical psychology from a CPA- or APA-accredited program. Our preference is for someone with adult clinical experience who has received training on and/or has experience in supervising the clinical work of clinical psychology students.
