Clinical interests: I have recently begun a new position with the TVDSB (Fall 2017).  My current position involves providing psychological services to four elementary schools and one secondary school.  In addition to providing assessment and consultation services to children, families, and staff, I have also provided several internal professional development trainings (including mental health/trauma, learning disabilities and giftedness).  Within one elementary and the secondary school, I also have the responsibility of providing services to the Transitions Program classrooms.  The students in these self-contained classes have been identified with Behavioural Exceptionalities and as requiring substantially differentiated educational experiences.  Although the school board is not a treatment setting, these children generally present with coomplex mental health and other needs.
My approach to assessment and intervention involves applying a developmental psychopathology view.  For assessment, the goal is to identify issues and develop strategies as appropriate for the educational environment.  For consultation, the goal is to assist school staff and families to better understand needs, and to help identify possible community resources that may also play a role.  There is also regular consultation related to students who have been identified a posing a possible risk to the environment, so a threat-risk assessment lens is used.  As the school board is not a treatment setting, intervention/therapeutic work usually makes use of solution-focused, and supportive strategies.  There is additional opportunity with the Transitions students, particularly in the secondary setting, to employ additional strategies as appropriate.

E-mail:  kim.harris@lfcc.on.ca

Clinical Interests:  I conduct court-ordered assessments of parenting capacity, custody and access, youth mental health, and capacity to testify.  I have been declared an expert witness in Family Court for parenting capacity, methal health, and psychological assessment.  The last five years, I have been actively involved in building diagnostic capacity for fetal alcohol spectrum disorders in the London area, an initiative that has received funding from the Ontario Trillium Foundation twice.  I view mental health from a developmental psychopathology perspective wherein maladaptive functioning is understood in terms of normal developoment recognizing that developoment is a dynamic process and there are a range of different outcomes depending on the individual's personal characteristics, developmental timing, and the risk and protective factors to which they are exposed.  I have found a systematic approach to be a useful scaffold for considering each of these issues in the practice of assessment, case conceptualization, and intervention.  When psychosocial intervention is warranted, I consult the research for treatments with empirical support and employ individualized strategies to promote generalization and maintenance of treatment effects.  Ideally, treatment is conducted in naturalistic settings, drawing upon the individual's strengths and tapping into resources already existing within each system.  It is often beneficial to elicit participation from individuals in each system (e.g., parents, teacher consultation, spouses, cultural/community elders).  Engagement in the treatment process is facilitated when families experience success and I have found that a graduated approach with proper prioritization of treatment goals (e.g., for a family living in poverty, linking them to resources for food and shelter before implementing a home-based intervention for their child with autism) and eventual fading of treatment procedures promotes personal competence and self-esteem.  Finally, because development is a dynamic process, continuous evaluation of treatment gains is essential to meet the changing needs of the child and the systems with which they interact.

Research Interests :  Although the Clinic involves primarily leadership and clinical work, I have undertaken both formal and informal program evaluations within the various programs at the Clinic and at other agencies.  These evaluations are essential to ensure the delivery of high quality empirically supported services.  In addition, within the contest of the various grants I co-lead, literature reviews, program monitoring and evaluation are required. While much of my research has focused on the proximal environmental factors that influence the development of disruptive behaviour, I am also interested in other factors within the individual, familial, social, and cultural systems that place individuals at risk and serve to protect them from risk.  As an adjunct faculty at Brock University, I have had the pleasure of supervising the Masters theses of two students working from my own data sets.  I have also remained involved in projects conceptualized and carried out during my internship and graduate school years, assisting with manuscripts through to journal submission.  At the Clinic I co-authored a book chapter on the bi-directional effects of family violence and involvment in the justice system. Most recently, I am updating several of our publications on Domestic Violence and Children Exposed for the Department of Justice, which will be available to the community in the coming months.

Clinical interests: I provide tertiary level services for children and adolescents both on an inpatient and outpatient basis. Inpatient clients present with a range of psychiatric and socio-emotional difficulties, including, but not limited to, anxiety disorders, mood disorders, disruptive behaviour disorders, disturbances in attachment, trauma, psychosis, disturbances in personality functioning, suicidality, self-injurious behaviour, low cognitive functioning, and learning disorders. I work within an interdisciplinary team to provide comprehensive assessments. I often provide individual and group treatment. I provide consultation regarding treatment planning to community care providers. I also support the residential unit with respect to programming and provide oversight of work done by front line counsellors.
In addition to my role on the inpatient unit, I provide assessment and consultation services on a highly specialized outpatient program that supports youth who present with problematic sexualized behaviour. Through this program, I often provide comprehensive assessments of children and adolescents and support the team in developing a bio-psycho-social formulation of the factors that have contributed to their sexualized behaviour. I subsequently provide consultation to community service providers with respect to the development and implementation of appropriate treatment plans.
I use a multi-method approach to assessment that includes self and other report questionnaires, unstructured and semi-structured interviews, objective and projective assessment tools, and direct observation and behavioural data collection and analysis (i.e., functional analysis of behaviour for inpatient clients).
Therapeutic groups typically focus on skill building and are CBT or DBT oriented. I have an integrative approach to individual therapy and adjust according to the needs of the client (CBT, DBT-informed, interpersonal, behavioural). I incorporate mindfulness skills as appropriate. I also often provide parent training/parent guidance from either a behavioural or cognitive behavioural perspective, or from an attachment-informed or trauma-informed perspective (depending on the needs of the client and family).

Clinical interests: Clinically, my main interests are in the treatment of eating disorders and anxiety disorders.  I work exclusively in the area of adult mental health.  I have a strong belief in the importance of empirically supported treatment and strive to use ESTs when available.  My predominant theoretical orientation is cognitive behavioural therapy and I seek to continually improve upon my CBT practice.  Similarly, I am interested in the training of clinicians in the use of CBT and how to do so in an effective manner.
Topics for workshops, seminars: Treatment of eating disorders (topics could include: essential psychoeducation, treatment of body image, addressing patterns of eating)

Clinical interests:  Involve neuropsychological differential diagnosis in complex clinical presentations as well as the use of clinical neuropsychological assessments to aid in pre-surgical planning for complex neurological conditions.  Most typically work with adults and seniors for pre=surgical candidacy, post-surgical follow-up, differential diagnosis, baseline and follow-up assessments to track disease progression, return to work/school/driving, etc.  The presenting conditions with which I most frequently work include: epilepsy, movement disorders, acquired and traumatic brain injuries, hydrocephalus, tumours, multiple sclerosis, etc.
All assessments are based on a biopsychosocial model.  That is, upon receipt of referral, the patient's presenting condition is considered based on current research, which helps to inform the clinical interview and test list selection.  Test selection is further guided by the psychometric properties of the measure, particularly reliability and validity within the patient population being seen.  Diagnostic impressions ar emade based on the available objective data (e.g., neurological exam, neuroimaging and other investigations, objective neuropsychological test data) combined with clinical interview information(from the individual and their collateral), consideration of the system within which the individual is functioning, and qualitative analysis of the individual's approach to neuropsychological testing.  This rich aggregate of information is then utilized to determine the likely etiology of the patient's clinical presentation and to general clinical recommendations, which are tailored to the individual.
Topics for workshops, seminars: Evaluating change in serial neuropsychological assessments

Telephone: (519) 685-4292, Ext. 42943
E-mail: Steve.Orenczuk@sjhc.london.on.ca

Clinical interests: Psychology residents may participate in the Regional Rehabilitation Service that serves persons with Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI; 15 beds) and Acquired Brain Injuries (ABI; 10 beds) who require inpatient care. This includes individuals who have had a spinal cord injury that is either traumatic (e.g., from a motor vehicle accident or fall) or non-traumatic in etiology (e.g., spinal metastases or transverse myelitis) or other neurological disorder (e.g., Guillain-Barre Syndrome). Supportive counselling and psychoeducational groups are available as experiences to the residents working on the spinal cord service. There is a cognitive behavioural emphasis to the treatment interventions that focuses on adjustment of the patient to his or her disability. Evaluations frequently include the psychometric assessment of cognitive functioning. Services often are consultative in nature. Participation in a community injury prevention program is also available.

On the Acquired Brain Injury (ABI) Rehabilitation Program, the inpatient service provides acute rehabilitation to patients referred for assessment and intervention requiring an intensive interprofessional program. ABI may be due to traumatic brain injury (TBI) associated with physical injury sustained in falls, assaults, and motor vehicle collisions. ABI may also be associated with medical conditions that affect the central nervous system, such as anoxia, stroke, brain tumour, or meningitis. Degenerative disease and dementia are usually followed by other programs. Concomitant mood disorders and pain complaints are prevalent, and may require consultation with specialized mental health and/or addictions services. Psychology residents may obtain experience planning and providing clinical interventions for individuals and families. Interventions may include cognitive-behavioural approaches, clinical education on emotional regulation for survivors and spouses, and participation in interprofessional rehabilitation.

Clinical interests: In my hospital clinical work I see adult and senior cardiovascular patients.  The largest portion of these have coronary artery disease, and may have sustained a heart attack, undergon angioplasty or heart surgery; while others may have heart failure; arrhythmias, or congenital heart problems.  Our program has two major goals:  rehabilitation, and secondary prevention.  I participate in each of these as a clinical psychologist through: (1) assessing and greating patients with issues of emotional adjustment, psychological comorbidities or risk factors of heart disease, such as depression and anxiety disorders; 2) modification of health-related behaviours, including smoking cessation, stress management, promoting adherence to secondary prevention medications and to behavioural regimes such as exercise.  Most of this work is done with individual patients, psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioural approaches.

Clinical interests: I have worked with adolescents for the majority of my career and, in particular, with marginalized youth.  For the past 16 years, I have worked with criminally involved young people in the London and surrounding county area, conducting psychological assessments (Section 34 reports) for youth court.  I have also been involved in  research with street youth from across Canada, working to understand their sexual attitudes, knowledge and behaviours for the Street Youth and AIDS Study and, as well, have worked in a similar capacity with HIV infected youth in Toronto.  As such, much of my work has included research as well as assessment and clinical intervention with high-needs and high-risk youth.  My training and clinical work has largely been informed by a psychodynamic approach and attachment theory.  My psychological assessment work for court purposes is also trauma informed with a forensic lens, and an awareness of the Justice System and the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA) is critical to my practice.

Research interests: I have previously been involved in a number of research activities and community-based program evaluation projects.  My experience includes National survey research with youth as well as program evaluation projects related to improving services for youth as well as high-risk families of young children.  General areas of interest at this time would include youth in the justice system and qualitative research methods.  Currently I am involved at the LFCC with the Poverty Reduction Project, which is a 3 year initiative funded by the Poverty Reduction Strategy Office of the Ontario Treasury Board Secretariat.  As youth living in poverty are represented in the court system an estimated 10 times higher than in the general youth population, we see this project as offering opportunity to respond to the current and future needs of court involved youth.  The project will allow us to more clearly understand the characteristics of young people in the justice system, and specifically, those factors that contribute to poverty (i.e., school dropout, lack of job skills, homelessness).  As part of this project, we will seek to improve young people’s access to services in the community through a specialized clinical team intervention, involving service coordinators.  It is hoped that through a more immediate and collaborative response following court involvement, youth can be encouraged to improve their service engagement and accept needed supports for improving their lives (i.e., mental health services, school programs, housing) – and also be supported in sustaining these gains over time.

Clinical interests: Assessment: Comprehensive assessments (cognitive processing and social-emotional issues) of students – typically between the ages of 7 and 17 to explore learning difficulties and make any appropriate diagnoses and recommendations; younger students are assessed when intellectual disability is suspected.  Intervention: Individual counselling is offered to students from age 8 to 18.  Presenting issues primarily include anxiety, depression, and stress management and occasionally include trauma, bereavement, and issues with executive function. The opportunity is available for clinical interns to run a small group focused on one of these issues if they have the interest. My primary theoretical orientation is CBT.  I also draw upon Motivational Interviewing (MI), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Mindfulness.  Consultation: There is consultation required in both the assessment and intervention components of this setting; however, more extensive exposure to the consultation role can be gained by interns by shadowing me at team meetings (typically conducted with parents, teachers and principals) and in my role on the Traumatic Event Response Team (TERT).  As well, more advanced clinical interns can be assigned one or more families to work with as a consultant, under my close supervision.

Clinical Interests:  My clincal interests include evidence-based assessment and treatment of children and youth presenting with complex internalizing difficulties, including mood, anxiety, and emerging personality disorders.  This also includes differential diagnosis of these and other disorders, particularly Autism Spectrum Disorders.  The primary theoretical approach used is cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT); however, treatment more often than not involves an integration of other approaches such as motivational interviewing, interpersonal psychotherapy, and dialectical behaviour therapy, and is conceptualized within a developmental biopsychosocial model.  I provide therapy in group and individual formats, with parents typically involved in treatment (particularly for younger population).  The age range of patients seen in our clinic ranges from 6 to 17 years old.  Additionally, I have strong clinical interest in children and youth with gender dysphoria, including adolescents who are considering or going through gender transitioning.  Starting in 2016, our program expanded our service mandate to include patients referred for gender dysphoria. The referral rates have been quite high, particularly considering the low base rate of this population.  These patients currently comprimise a significant portion of my caseload.
Types of workshops; seminars:  Gender dysphoria in children/adolescents; Learning disabilities; Adolescent mental health; Anxiety disorders in children/adolescents; School refusal in children/adolescents; Group treatment for anxiety; Assessment and treatment of depression in adolescence; Assessment of Autism Spectrum disorders; Completing suicide risk assessments.

E-mail: csmith@vanier.com
Clinical interests: I primarily provide service to children (and their families) who are clients of the residential treatment program at Vanier.  The children are referred for residential treatment primarily because they present with disruptive behaviour problems at home, at school, and/or in the community.  However, clients tend to present with a range of concerns in addition to disruptive behaviour, including anxiety, depression, developmental and learning disorders, post traumatic stress, and disturbances of attachment.  My role as team psychologist primarily involves providing individual psychological assessments (psychoeducational, social-emotional, diagnostic, or comprehensive); providing consultation to the interdisciplinary team (which includes Child and Youth Workers, Child and Family Therapists, Teachers, and Psychiatrists); providing consultations to families and community partners (e.g., parents, grandparents, foster parents, CAS Workers, school personnel); and providing individual therapy for children.  My theoretical approach is mainly centred on Cognitive--Behavioural theory as well as attachment theory. 
Topics for workshops, seminars: Milieu treatment (residential and day treatment), behaviour management approaches during assessment and therapy with children with disruptive behaviours, bullying reduction, strength-based approaches to treatment, intergenerational trauma, the application of attachment and trauma theories to clinical practice.
Type of practica: Initial assessment, Initial intervention; Advanced practica
