The Psychological Services and Research Centre’s House on Sunset recently played host to UWindsor president Alan Wildeman. Dr. Wildeman stopped by to tour the facility and visit graduate psychology students taking part in clinical training programs which provide services to the community under the direction of faculty advisors.
The centre’s treatment program has been running in various capacities at the university for the past 40 years and provides more than $5.3 million annually in mental health care services through the on-campus clinic itself and the placement of trainees at more than 30 hospitals, schools and agencies across Windsor and Essex County.
The centre trains approximately 30 clinicians a year and is considered to be among the highest regarded in North America, with PSRC students consistently scoring in the top 10 percent on professional licensing exams among their North American peers. Because of Windsor’s multicultural makeup, its students have an opportunity to work with diverse populations, gaining unique perspectives on cultural differences that can be critical to understanding and helping with emotional health, says centre director Antonio Pascual-Leone.
