David Fainstein, Clinical Psychology Intern
I am working with Compass as part of my pre-doctoral internship at the British Columbia School and Applied Psychology Internship Consortium. I have the opportunity to provide psychological assessment, therapeutic intervention, and consultation under supervision from Registered Psychologists on staff at Compass. My work integrates several strands of clinical experience and applied research to offer insights on learning and behaviour. I use an open, approachable style to understand more about the kinds of information that I can help uncover through direct psychological service. My collegiate training runs coast-to-coast, with a B.Sc from the University of Victoria, an M.A. in School Psychology from Mount Saint Vincent University, an M.Sc in Special Education from the University of Oregon, and a nearly-complete Ph.D from the University of Oregon. I am specializing in research and practice for psychological assessments for children and youth with complex or developmental needs as well as professional supports to intervene on at-risk learners with useful instructional practices.
