Kinetik Rehabilitation Services (Saskatoon, SK) – Saskatchewan Health Authority is seeking PhD Psychologists to join our dynamic interdisciplinary team.

Kinetik offers interdisciplinary rehabilitation programs to individuals experiencing mental health challenges following physical and/or psychological injuries. In the mental health stream, psychologists provide specialized assessment and psychological treatment to individuals dealing with post-traumatic stress, anxiety, depression, pain, sleep disruption, and stress related to difficult work experiences.  In the physical injury stream, psychologists provide tertiary-level assessment and treatment to clients struggling with pain, loss of function, sleep disruption, life role/relationship changes, and mental health concerns following a physical workplace injury. Within both streams, clinicians work closely with a team of other professionals (including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and exercise therapists) to assist clients in symptom management and resumption of function, including the creation of formal return to work plans. Applicants may express interest in either or both streams, with work allocated accordingly.

A background in evidence-based treatment for trauma, anxiety, depression and pain coping is an asset for this position; however, training and mentorship will be provided as part of employment. This includes regular peer consultation, conference participation, as well as formal training in relevant interventions such as Prolonged Exposure Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy and/or other appropriate modalities.
