Although the UBC Psychotherapy Program does not operate a clinical service, it is engaged in a variety of activities that help advance psychotherapy service provision. These include the development of specialized resources for clinicians and members of the public, as well as consultation to community mental health clinicians and programs regarding service provision and psychotherapy supervision. Furthermore, various members of the Program provide independent psychotherapy services.
