Mission

The mission of the Clinical Psychology Program at the University of Regina it to train our students in the scientist-practitioner tradition so that they will be prepared to work as either a researcher, teacher or practitioner or all of these within a variety of settings (academic, clinical, or research setting).

Philosophy/Principles

In keeping with the motto of the University of Regina as “One Who Serves” the philosophy of the clinical program in the Department of Psychology is characterized by a commitment to our responsibility to society and to our responsibility to the profession. In fulfilling these responsibilities, we endeavour to ensure that our students are not only knowledgeable and competent in both delivery of services and in the conduct of creative research, but that they also endorse an ethic of care. Underlying these skills and attitude acquisitions is the principle of integrity in relationships, which, in turn, is characterized, by respect for the dignity, and welfare of others.
