2018-2019 Kingston Internship Consortium Brochure

Kingston Internship Consortium

Ongwanada is the lead agency for the Kingston Internship Consortium (KIC). The Consortium is designed to prepare a psychology intern to practice as a Clinical Psychologist. This Canadian Psychological Association-accredited internship provides a breadth of training experiences with a diverse population. The interns work with individuals with physical, emotional, cognitive, social and/or occupational impairments. These impairments may have occurred as a result of developmental, illness, trauma, or injury processes.

Recognizing that disabilities present different challenges to individuals at different stages of their development, the internship also exposes interns to a lifespan perspective. To accomplish these goals, the Kingston Internship Consortium (KIC) unites the resources of five agencies in the Kingston Community, which each provides a unique perspective on the role and skills required of psychologists in the identification of function and disability, the promotion of maximum participation, and the minimization of limitations.

The five agencies are Ongwanada, Queen's University , Providence Care Hospital, KidsInclusive and Pathways for Children and Youth. The Kingston Internship Consortium is endorsed and supported by the administration within each agency.

In October 2012, the Kingston Internship Consortium was re-accredited for a period of six years by the Canadian Psychological Association. The Accreditation term runs until 2017-2018.

Kingston Internship Consortium Mission Statement

The Kingston Internship Consortium's training focus is to develop psychologists whose broad knowledge, skills and values can be applied in clinical psychology as well as to ensure they are competent to utilize the knowledge, skills and values working within a wide range of clinical areas and populations.

In addition to applied training in the core competencies of Psychological Services practice (Interpersonal Relationships, Assessment and Evaluation, Intervention and Consultation, Research, Ethics and Standards, Supervision) our approach emphasizes the scientist-practitioner model to all aspects of Psychological Services.

Training opportunities occur while working with multifaceted complex cases within the contexts of populations with acquired and developmental disabilities, using the resources across five agencies. The collaboration among the varied agencies (which are funded by different government ministries) provides exceptional opportunities for clinical and role diversity in settings that are hospital and community based, involve multiple interprofessional teams, various supervision roles, and a variety of practice models.

A unique aspect of our training program is this rich diversity with a core emphasis in training across the lifespan in the breadth and depth of psychological practice.
