The purpose of this handbook is to provide students in the CD area with information and guidelines that will aid in the completion of their degrees. This information has been taken from a variety of available resources both inside and outside of York University. It is important to note however, that this information will change from time to time at the original source. Subsequently, information in this handbook should be confirmed by referring to the original source as the original information supercedes that reported in this document.





Furthermore, although future editions of this handbook will be updated to reflect any changes in the original documents, students should continue to verify the information at the original source.

It should be noted that official policies and guidelines for completing M.A. and Ph.D. work at York University are available from the Faculty of Graduate Studies website and the Graduate Studies Calendar. If a discrepancy is observed between this handbook and the FGS policies, the information from FGS should be viewed as the official policy.

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome students to the Clinical-Developmental Program at York University. This handbook was made to help guide you through the graduate process and to make your journey a little easier. There are a lot of forms to fill out and people that you need to talk to during your years at York. A lot of the information found in this handbook is from various other sources, but we hope to save you some time and frustration by putting it all together for you.

You will notice that not only does this handbook contain official and unofficial information about your studies at York, it also contains a section on ‘Life Outside of Graduate School’. Yes, it is possible. And, it is necessary. While your time at York will be a busy one, it is most important to maintain perspective, avoid burnout and be productive. Locking yourself in your office and reading for days at a time will not help you accomplish these goals. The current graduate students at York University have some suggestions to get you out and enjoying what Toronto has to offer.

We hope you will enjoy your time at York University. Please keep a copy of this handbook for your records and refer to the timeline at the beginning of the handbook for a quick reference on how to proceed through the program in a timely manner. If you have any suggestions to make this handbook better, please feel free to talk with the CD area student representative in your cohort.

CURRICULUM CHANGES

Please note that the CD area has changed its curriculum to match the requirements of the CPA for clinical training in Clinical Developmental Psychology. These changes are outlined beginning on page 24. For those students who were in the program prior to the implementation of the changes in September 2013, the existing program at the time of their entry into the CD area is the one they should follow.

The rationale for these changes is outlined here, verbatim from the proposal submitted by the CD area curriculum committee in 2012 for approval by Senate. These changes were approved in the 2012-2013 academic year.

Since the establishment of the Clinical Developmental (CD) Graduate Program over 30 years ago, the area has undergone one review of its graduate degree requirements. This previous review compared the CD Area to other clinical psychology areas across Canada and concluded that the CD Area had fewer required courses and clinical training, particularly in the M.A. degree.

Given the changing landscape of psychological practice in Canada, an area review at this time is warranted and overdue.

The CD Area underwent an accreditation review of its program by the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) in 2009, which accredits the area to provide training to graduate students intending to become registered as clinical psychologists. Overall, CPA provided very positive feedback about the CD Area, including its faculty, graduate students, and university administrative support. Recommendations from CPA for improving the area include further integrating the York University Psychology Clinic into the CD Area, introducing experiential clinical training earlier in graduate training, and providing formal training to students in theories related to developmental psychopathology, and diversity and cultural psychology.

The Department of Psychology at York University was affiliated with the opening of the York University Psychology Clinic (YUPC), which is a new, state-of-the art community mental health and training centre. The clinic provides a range of leading edge, effective mental health services to keep people of all ages living healthy, productive lives. YUPC is committed to, among other things, the provision of evidence-based training to graduate students and community-based practitioners. In order to maximize graduate student involvement in clinical services available through YUPC, and promote in-house experiential 10 learning in assessment and intervention, there is a need to integrate YUPC graduate training opportunities by CD faculty more systematically throughout the CD curriculum at both the M.A. and Ph.D. levels.

In 2010, current and past graduate students completed two surveys about the CD Area. Based on their responses, it was suggested to expand graduate training in intervention modalities, integrate additional clinical training into the M.A. Area, and be mindful of student workload issues. In 2010 and 2011, graduate students were also provided an opportunity to participate in a Student Town Hall Session to review and approve the proposed curriculum changes presented in this document.

The introduction of recently accredited Clinical Psychology graduate training programs in southwestern Ontario (Clinical Psychology Applied Developmental Emphasis Graduate Program at the University of Guelph and the School and Clinical Child Psychology Graduate Program at OISE/University of Toronto) has increased the competitiveness for practicum and internship placements in the GTA. Ensuring that the CD training at York is current and comprehensive will help to strengthen the scientist-practitioner foundation of York students and keep them competitive and successful throughout all stages of their training.
