Practicum Program

Our Vision 

CITC is an innovative and leading psychology practice that offers specialized treatment in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Interpersonal Psychotherapy (IPT) for adults, adolescents and children. Our vision is that both cognitive and interpersonal factors play a significant role in psychological health and that by helping clients make changes to how they think and how they relate to others, we can have a profound impact on their day-to-day functioning.

Our Training Program

The Cognitive and Interpersonal Therapy Centre (CITC) is proud to offer a comprehensive practicum and internship training program to students in master’s (e.g., M.A.) or doctoral-level (e.g., Ph.D., Psy.D.) psychology programs. Clinical placements typically follow the September to May academic year schedule, but training opportunities are available throughout the calendar year. 

We accept students who are training in intervention and assessment for adults, adolescents, and children. Intervention will focus on learning how to deliver manualized, empirically validated CBT and IPT. Assessment will focus on clinical interviewing and the application of personality, mood, and interpersonal psychological measures.
