PSCTC Child and Youth Assessment Clinics and Adult Assessment Clinic

The PSCTC Assessment Clinics offer psycho-educational assessments and/or consultation for children, youth and adult students (grade 12 to post-secondary) who have questions about their cognitive, academic, social-emotional, or behavioural strengths and weaknesses in order to provide diagnoses and/or to develop strategies to meet their individual learning needs. Young clients are referred by their parents, community agencies, or practitioners in schools and agencies, while many adult clients (post-secondary students) are referred either by themselves or on the recommendation of a secondary school or post-secondary institution. Clinicians include graduate students under the supervision of Registered Psychologists, recent graduates from the UBC school psychology training program, or Certified School Psychologists. Overall coordination of work in the Clinics is provided by the Director, supported by the assessment clinic coordinator and our administrative team.

The assessment process in the Assessment Clinics is oriented toward efficiency for the client with a clear focus on referral problems and a commitment to detailed recommendations for intervention and support in educational and workplace settings. The wait list is currently closed but we hope to reopen in during the Summer of 2022. The assessment process is expected to be completed within about 6 weeks from the first intake meeting with the assessor. Current fees for assessment are $1,800.00 for assessment with a clinician under supervision. Assessments undertaken by Registered Psychologist carry a fee of $2,500.00.

For further information, or to be included on the waiting list, please contact the PSCTC by phone 604 822 1364 or e-mail regarding referral procedures.

PSCTC Counselling Clinic

As part of the Counselling Psychology program, the PSCTC also offers counselling sessions to adults, students, and children over the age of 10 from September to April. The counsellors are UBC Counselling Psychology Master’s and Doctoral students in training, with an instructor who is onsite supervising the counsellors. The counselling sessions offer support with stress-management (work, home, school stress), anxiety, depression, school, or relationship issues. Referrals to other services are also available, if we are not able to help, or should clients need extra support. Counselling sessions are currently offered primarily in person but with some opportunities for online counselling using Zoom.

Please note that all clients must complete a telephone intake interview prior to their first counselling session. The waitlist is now open. Interested clients can call our reception at 604 822 1364 and we will send a link for our intake form. Once the form is completed, our clinic coordinator will follow up to complete a intake interview by phone.
