The Future of Canadian Psychotherapy

Description: The modern landscape of psychotherapy is rapidly changing, making the specifics of its future implementation uncertain. Indeed, popular clinical therapeutic modalities and intervention techniques have seen stark shifts within the past decade. Given psychotherapy’s far-reaching positive impacts on mental health, the details of how it will be conducted in the future are of dire importance. The current study will offer a seminal prediction of what the field of psychotherapy may look like in Canada throughout the next decade by amassing clinician perspectives through a national survey. Clinicians will offer their perspectives on multiple issues, including anticipated shifts to therapeutic modalities (such as mindfulness-based approaches), interventions (such as online therapy), and formats (such as couples therapy). Additionally, anticipated changes to both who will be predominantly delivering (doctoral level vs. master’s level clinicians) and receiving (children vs. adults) psychotherapy will be investigated. Finally, various forecasted scenarios will also be assessed for likelihood (such as whether the presence of clinicians within the hospital system will increase).

Specifics: Study Population:
Any licensed psychotherapist or psychologist current practicing psychotherapy in Canada is eligible to participate (to be sourced through provincial and federal regulatory organizations).

Participant Obligation:
Participants will be asked to complete an online survey which will take approximately 15-20 minutes. Participants are under no obligation to participate in this survey and can quit at anytime. No identifying data will be collected.

Understanding the Parenting Approaches Taught in Clinical Psychology Programs and Students’ Related Perspectives

Description: The current project's primary objective is to examine graduate students' perspectives in clinical psychology programs across Canada on various parenting practices. We are especially interested in exploring their attitudes toward physical and emotional punishment (i.e., time out, withdrawal of privileges, ignoring etc.). The second objective of this study is to examine the knowledge and attitudes of clinical students on children’s rights. Finally, to provide a context for our goals, we will also collect information on clinical students' training around parenting interventions through their coursework and clinical placements. This study will provide information on the perspectives of clinical students on both the use of punitive parenting practices as well as on children’s rights. This study has important implications for clinical training and practice in that it will shed light on the view of training professionals on the use of punitive parenting, and in turn, will inform training recommendations. This project will address the following questions: (1) What are the attitudes toward using various parenting strategies among graduate-level clinical psychology students? (2) What are the attitudes toward children’s rights of clinical students? (3) What is students' general knowledge of children’s rights?

Specifics: Study Population:
Clinical students from CPA-accredited clinical programs across Canada will be invited to complete an online questionnaire. Inclusion criteria include having the ability to understand English and currently being enrolled in a clinical program.

Participant Obligation:
Participants will be asked to fill out a questionnaire on sociodemographic characteristics and aspects of their clinical training as well as several measurement instruments assessing their attitudes toward physical punishment and children's rights.

Effect Sizes in Criminal Justice Psychology: Applied Perspectives

Description: Psychological researchers have been encouraged to report effect size indices along with more traditional measures of statistical significance (i.e., a p-value and a statement of whether a result is statistically significant or not). Effect size indices are thought to help people determine the practical importance of research findings. We are interested in using a qualitative approach to develop a theoretical framework on how individuals who work in more applied areas of psychology, such as criminal justice psychology, think about and use effect size information in their work. There is currently no theoretical framework that describes this process. The results of this study will provide information about how effect sizes are used in applied aspects of psychology, where practical meaningfulness is an essential component.

Specifics: Study Population:
We are recruiting psychologists who work in the criminal justice system (e.g., forensic psychologists, correctional psychologists, etc.). Participants must be licensed and practicing psychologists. All interviews will be conducted in English.

Participant Obligation:
Participants will be asked to complete one in-depth interview (up to 60 minutes) and one follow-up interview (up to 30 minutes) several weeks later. Participants will be compensated with $25 CN (e-transfer or Amazon gift card).

If interested in participating in this study, or learning more about it, please contact Kathleen Soule (kathleensoule@trentu.ca) or Kevin Peters (kevinpeters@trentu.ca).

Location: All interviews will be conducted over Zoom. The project team is located at in Peterborough, Ontario.

Building Resilience and Well-being in Primary Care During and After the Covid-19 Pandemic: A Multiple Case-study in Continuing Professional Development

Description: Across all waves, the Covid-19 pandemic is continuing to place a severe burden on the mental health and psychological well-being of primary care practitioners (PCPs), including feeling at risk of contagion due to lack of personal protection equipment and testing and high workload. Healthcare organizations have been called upon to support their professionals’ well-being through leadership by supporting interventions to enhance their resilience. However, there is a substantial mismatch between PCPs’ perceived needs and available interventions. Most interventions address individual professional support needs whereas most PCPs report greater interest in occupational protection, rest, and social support. Healthcare leaders argue that an integrative approach to continuing professional development (CPD) could play a key role in the pandemic by assisting PCPs in retooling and learning new skills and competencies. However, the impact of CPD interventions aimed at supporting PCP’s mental health has not been systematically evaluated over time across the micro, meso, and macro system levels. This pilot study aims to contribute to this emerging critical gap by exploring the psychological needs of PCPs in Canada and the availability and use of individual, team and organizational interventions for building PCPs’ resilience.

Specifics: Study Population:
Psychologists, practicing in Ontario, Quebec, or British-Columbia. Primary care (clinic(s), office(s), nursing home(s), long-term care facilities and/or emergency department(s)). Practice in urban, suburban, rural or remote area(s).
Participant Obligation:
Participants will complete a sociodemographic questionnaire and interview (30 – 45 minutes; recorded with the permission of participants and transcribed). (They will be able to access and comment on interview transcripts.)

Accessing and Utilizing Services for Intimate Partner Violence: Centering the Voices of Survivors and Service Providers who Serve Them

Description: Despite the growing body of research literature pertaining to the understanding of survivors' help-seeking behaviours, limitations remain with respect to adequately understanding and conceptualizing the service utilization of survivors using intersectionality theory. More research is needed to bridge the gap between the intersectionality theoretical framework and the development of service programs and policies that reach to the diverse groups of survivors. In order to promote equitable, accessible, and inclusive services for all survivors, it is imperative to learn how various groups of survivors experience services and how these services attend to their intersecting identities and unique social locations. It is also essential to explore how providers who serve them understand survivors' experiences. Therefore, the aim of this research is to explore from multiple perspectives, how survivors of IPV and service providers who serve them understand survivors' experiences of accessing and utilizing mental health and social support services. I hope that this study can make a contribution to the field of domestic violence, ultimately improving services for all survivors. If you are in Canada and interested in participating, please do not hesitate to contact me via email address at asra.milani@mail.mcgill.ca

Specifics: Study Population:
Participants are adult survivors of intimate partner violence (IPV), have left abusive relationship and are safe. Participants also are licensed mental health practitioners who worked with survivors of IPV and have five years of experience.

Gay-Straight Alliances On University Campuses: Impact and Implications for the LGBTQ+ Community

Description: The current study looks to investigate the presence of Gay-Straight Alliances (GSAs) on Canadian University campuses to compare how awareness of GSAs impact mental health in LGBTQ+ university students. The impact of GSAs in similar literature has contributed to higher rates of academic achievement, better mental health, increased support from peers and teachers, reduced LGBTQ+ discrimination, and reduced suicidality in LGBTQ+ youth (Russell et al., 2011; Davis et al., 2016; Baams & Russell, 2020; Fetner & Elafros, 2015; Saewyc et al., 2014; Poteat et al., 2013). However, literature that examines the impact of GSAs in universities is sparse, and even more limited in regard to their effect in Canadian universities. Understanding how GSAs contribute to the psychological profiles of LGBTQ+ university students will provide universities with a better understanding of how to assist these individuals. The purpose of this study is to investigate and expand the current body of literature regarding the positive influence of GSAs on the LGBTQ+ community, and to determine if their influence is pervasive in LGBTQ+ university students. Further, the study also seeks to examine anti-bullying and discrimination policies implemented by universities and at the participant’s previous high schools to better understand their impact.

Specifics: Study Population
Must be 19+, enrolled in a Canadian university, identify as LGBTQ+, and live in Canada.

Participant Obligation
Participation in this research entails electronically completing several questionnaires through the platform "SurveyMonkey", which will take approximately 45 minutes to an hour to complete.
