In 2013, Calgary Counselling Centre had 26 intern and 18 resident positions throughout the year. The Centre continues to be recognized as a national leader in professional training in counselling, specifically in the fields of psychology, social work, and marriage and family therapy.
The Haskayne Learning Centre for Graduate and Post-Graduate Counselling Studies provides students with fully accredited Post-Graduate and Graduate training programs building experience in both individual and group counselling best practices.
We focus on creating a collaborative workplace that allows students to learn from each other and receive feedback from their supervisors while working with clients through a broad range of emotional, social psychological and interpersonal issues. The fast-paced training environment gives interns and residents the opportunity to be trained in leading counselling techniques providing a professional edge as they move into the workforce.
To achieve the best results for our clients and our community Calgary Counselling Centre offers a wide variety of professional development. In 2013, we continued to offer training for staff and students with Dr. Scott D. Miller, renowned author and founder of the International Center for Clinical Excellence, and co-creator of Feedback Informed Treatment practiced at the Centre.
We also offered workshops with Dr. Michal Yapko, esteemed clinical psychologist, author and expert in the areas of depression, family therapy, and hypnosis; the workshops included themes of "Treating Depression Strategically" and a 100-hour comprehensive training program in clinical hypnosis and strategic psychotherapy.
Moving forward into 2014, we will continue our commitment to provide innovative and leading-edge education and training opportunities to our staff, residents and interns. In 2014, we will hold a research conference, which was originally intended to be held in 2013, but due to the flood it was rescheduled for 2014.
I love the variety of clients and experience the Centre offers, along with the support from the staff to grow and develop as a professional."– Bryanne Miller, Counselling Intern
