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

Kinetik offers interdisciplinary rehabilitation 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 experiencing posttraumatic stress, anxiety, depression, pain, sleep disruption, and stress.  In the physical injury stream, psychologists provide assessment and treatment to clients struggling with pain, loss of function, sleep disruption, life changes, and mental health concerns. Within both streams, clinicians work closely with other professionals (including physiotherapists, occupational therapists, and exercise therapists) to assist clients in symptom management and resumption of function, including return to employment. 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.

OFFERING:
