This post-doctoral fellowship will emphasize training in, and implementation of, client-centered best practice in the largest mental health facility in Canada, with a particular emphasis on cognitive behavioural interventions. The focus of this work will be on enhancing therapeutic programming in both inpatient and outpatient settings throughout the CMI Program at CAMH (in both the Schizophrenia and Forensic Divisions), and will include work in development of programming, program evaluation, and training and supervision of allied mental health staff.
