Coming Fall, 2016, WLU’s Faculty of Social Work (Professional Development Program) & Qualia Counselling Services Inc. have partnered to bring an exciting new program to Waterloo Region.

Certification in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (Level 1 and Level 2)

PROGRAM OVERVIEW
The CBT certificate is designed to provide an in-depth understanding of one of the most prevalent and effective forms of psychotherapy in the marketplace today. A highly structured and concrete therapy, CBT will introduce its’ Level 1 students to a set of skills that are highly tactical and that can be brought to clinical practice within the first week. In Level 2, students will learn to use those skills and interventions within the world of mental health and DSM-5 disorders. Over the two levels, students will experience an increase in their knowledge through training, will increase their practical skills within their professional interactions, and will become able to competently bring this powerful therapeutic model to their helping context. The certificate is open to professionals and graduate students across disciplines and worksites.

Clinical Supervision

Qualia offers the opportunity to receive clinical supervision to the KW community of psychotherapists. This is a formal, supervisory relationship that has as its goal the development of clinical skills for the Supervisee, as directed by the Supervisor. Methods such as taping sessions, reflective observation, verbatims and process recordings are used. Supervision format can be as frequent as is wished by the Supervisee, and where recommendations are given by the Supervisor based on current skill level, career aspirations and previous training.

McMaster Residency “CBT Immersion” Module

Throughout the year, Qualia offers a 4 week “CBT immersion” experience for learners within the Michel G DeGroote School of Medicine Residency Program. Topics cover small-scale CBT interventions that might be used in medical interviews, as well as orientation to the nature of the CBT paradigm alongside of medical care for emotionally distressed Patients. Interested Residents should contact heidi.hallman@family-medicine.ca to coordinate the module with their course of study.

Clinician Internship

On a case-by-case nature, Qualia will at times accept Masters level student Interns. The ability to accept an Intern is based on our current business demands, ability to supervise a student given our current resources, and the potential we believe we see in prospective Interns to eventually work within our company. Interns are generally groomed for hire in one of our areas of clinical practice (children and youth, adults, etc). Interested parties should send their resume and covering letter, that gives a description of career ambitions and areas of clinical interest, to: info@qualiacounselling.com.
