POSTDOCTORAL CERTIFICATION IN ADULT CLINICAL PSYCHOLOGY
Psychology offers a postdoctoral certification in Adult Clinical Psychology. (Note that postdoctoral certification programs in Child Clinical Psychology or in Clinical Neuropsychology are not offered.) The Postdoctoral Certification Program in Adult Clinical Psychology is designed for psychologists who: a) hold a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Psychology in areas other than clinical psychology; b) have had a minimum of three years of postdoctoral experience; and c) wish to retrain as clinical practitioners.
A committee of three faculty members (including the Adult Clinical Coordinator and the Postdoctoral Certification Program Coordinator) will constitute the admissions committee. Inquiries and requests for application forms should be addressed as follows: Postdoctoral Certification Program Coordinator, Department of Psychology, University of Windsor, Windsor, Ontario N9B 3P4.
The following courses are required and will be used by the advisory committee as the basis for designing the trainee's program:
46-581. Ethical and Professional Issues in Psychology
46-582. Clinical Assessment I
46-583. Clinical Assessment II
46-589. Advanced Adult Assessment
46-674. Introduction to Psychotherapy
and two two-term course sequences in psychotherapy.
In addition to required courses, the Post-doctoral Certification Program requires completion of a 2000-hour clinical internship. Trainees should not expect to complete the program in less than two to three years.
The advisory committee will be composed of three faculty members, including the Adult Clinical Coordinator. The committee will evaluate the specific needs of the trainee and modify the program as necessary to meet individual training needs. The advisory committee is also responsible for guiding the trainee through the program, evaluating the trainee's progress and, ultimately, verifying that the trainee has successfully completed the certification program.
