South Island Pre-Doctoral Residency Program in Clinical and Counseling Psychology

The South Island Pre-Doctoral Residency in Clinical and Counseling Psychology is one of only a small number of community based residency programs available in Canada. This residency program is well suited for PhD candidates in psychology who would like to gain in depth experience in the field of Child and Youth Mental Health (CYMH).

This residency is located in Greater Victoria and hosted by three local CYMH teams: Saanich Child and Youth Mental Health Services, Victoria Child and Youth Mental Health Services and Westshore Child and Youth Mental Health Services. These CYMH teams are three of the seven teams serving the residents of Victoria on Southern Vancouver Island and are funded by the Ministry of Children and Family Development.

The program submitted an application for accreditation in Spring 2019, completed a site visit in July 2019 and is currently awaiting the decision of the accreditation panel.
