A psychologist/psychological associate studies how we think, feel and behave from a scientific viewpoint and applies this knowledge to help people understand, explain and change their behaviour. To become a psychologist, a person has to have completed a graduate university degree in psychology. Psychologists usually have extensive experience conducting assessments, using empirically validated tools, in order to address specific questions around behaviour and interventions. Generally, psychologists engage in activities such as diagnosing disorders or problems of clients, determining appropriate interventions based on assessment results, clinical diagnoses and/or observations. Psychologists assist individual clients and third party agencies in making decisions about the best next steps. This can include a range of services from individual support and treatment, recommendations related to specific referral questions and/or in a consultant role. Only individuals registered with the College of Psychologists of Ontario (CPO) can use the title “Psychologist” or “Psychological Associate”.
