    Testimonials

    The Bachelor of Applied Arts in Behavioural Psychology (BPSYC) program at St. Lawrence College provided me an excellent academic foundation on which to start my career. The knowledgeable and friendly faculty, quality academic programming, and numerous supervised clinical placements have fostered my academic, clinical, and interpersonal growth in a field that I truly love. The academic work and placement opportunities assist students to find a meaningful, rewarding, and stimulating career within the greater scope of behavioural psychology. The faculty are tremendously gifted with the ability to identify students' strengths and interests. Upon graduating, I immediately obtained full-time employment with Counselling Services of Belleville and District (CSBD), providing Intensive Behavioural Intervention (IBI) to children with moderate to severe autism spectrum disorder (ASD). My position entails working one-to-one with children in a specialized teaching environment. During instructional time, I utilize teaching principles derived from Skinner's Verbal Behaviour (1957) to teach skills to clients (e.g., language, self-care, play skills, etc.), reduce challenging behaviours, and promote social interaction. I also recently obtained part-time employment with Bayfield Treatment Centres as a behaviour therapist in a multi-disciplinary team. In my position at Bayfield, I design behavioural interventions for youth with challenging behaviours living in a residential treatment centre. Both of my positions have been tremendously rewarding, exciting, and challenging.  I have maintained my relationship with St. Lawrence College after graduation by tutoring BPSYC students. I have also co-founded a behaviour analysis reading group with current and former BPSYC staff and students. In the future, I plan to become involved with supervision of BPSYC placement students.
     I attribute all of my success and experience so far in my career to the BPSYC program. The program teaches current skills and knowledge that are critical in the field. The faculty in the program have a vast amount of knowledge and experience, which they used within course work and field placement to offer high-calibre education. I have been afforded many experiences and opportunities from the BPSYC program and I believe that there are many more career experiences to come.
