Attention, Behaviour, and Compassion Lab

If you are interested in gaining research experience (e.g., a Master's or doctoral thesis, a paid Research Assistantship) at the ABC Lab, please email Dr. Jiang. We value the wisdom of individuals with lived experience, who are especially encouraged to apply.

The ABC Lab is situated in the Master of Arts program in Counselling and Spirituality, conferred jointly by Saint Paul University and the University of Ottawa. This 2-year program has an in-house Counselling and Psychotherapy Centre for on-site training and is officially recognized by the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). It prepares students to start the path of becoming a Registered Psychotherapist in Ontario (R.P.) and is also an eligible program to apply for Canadian Certified Counsellor (C.C.C.) designation with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). Graduates who have begun their registration process with CRPO as part of this program can begin employment in psychotherapy under qualified supervision while they accrue hours for independent practice with CRPO.

Our current mental health needs require an all-hands-on-deck approach. Let's all work together to increase the availability and accessibility of skilled mental health care to our communities.

Saint Paul University is a spiritual, human, open, and engaged community of learning in which all are welcome. It has some of the lowest tuition rates in Ontario and is located in one of the top 20 cities in the world to study according to students. More information about the university can be found here, along with the application process.
