    Testimonials

    The BPSYC program really is the best of both worlds; it balances the theory of a degree while putting that knowledge into practice. A theoretical foundation is taught from day one, as is research and an understanding of the literature. Alongside these aspects, students learn early on how to comprehensively assess, and create interventions using a client-centered approach. They then apply these skills to real life settings and workplaces, where it is a necessity to be flexible and respectful in multidisciplinary environments. As a graduate of the program, my training and placement experience gave me an edge when applying for graduate school. When I entered my graduate education in Counselling Psychology, I already had a comfort level with reviewing research, determining best practices and assessing case models for clients. I also had the knowledge of many different intervention strategies, as well as when they are appropriate for use and how to use them. I attribute my education at St. Lawrence College to preparing me for this experience and obtaining an SSHRC scholarship to conduct research in the Coping Experiences of 911 Communication Workers. I would not have gotten the training or the experience working closely with my professors and others in the field, had I attended a traditional university setting.
