Dr. Pardy has been an adjunct professor with the
Counseling Centre since 2010, primarily in the role of supervision
of Doctoral interns and PsyD students. She works with Eastern
Health in the Mental Health and Addictions program in a position
called Eating Disorder Transition and Consultation. The target
group is individuals between the ages of 18-21 who are in need of
adult eating disorder services and who may be transitioning from
the pediatric eating disorder program. Services include assessment
and diagnosis, individual, group and family therapy, and referral
to and consultation with medical, dietetic, psychiatric, and
psychological/counseling services. She manages a caseload of
approximately 15-20 clients consisting primarily of young women
diagnosed with AN-R, AN-B/P, BN, and ED-NOS. Many of her clients
have a concurrent diagnosis of anxiety, depression, or an Axis II
disorder. Dr. Pardy’s theoretical orientation combines
cognitive behavioral, interpersonal, and psychodynamic therapies,
all from a motivational interviewing stance. Dr. Pardy has formal
postgraduate training in advanced clinical supervision, and engages
in ongoing professional development through seminars, consultation,
and participation in supervision of supervision. She has supervised
at all levels of professional training including practica, doctoral
internships, and professional registration. She takes a
developmental approach to supervision, focusing on both the process
of development as a psychologist, with an emphasis on the affective
component of self and other awareness, and on the attainment of
specific competencies for professional functioning. She
accomplishes this through a combination of direct observation and
self-report. Her supervision style is also influenced by her
clinical stance and theoretical orientation: potential supervisees
must have good interpersonal skills for working within a
multidisciplinary framework, and be open to discussions regarding
their own reactions and biases. Previous work in the areas of
eating disorders, adolescence, family therapy, and motivational
interviewing would be an asset. Shortlisted applicants will be
scheduled for an interview. Please feel free to contact Dr. Pardy
if you have any questions about the supervision experience she
offers at email@example.com

Eastern Health as the sole psychologist in the women’s health
program, where she developed groups on perinatal bereavement and
infertility management, and practiced individual and couple
therapy. Since 2011, she has worked at the Terrace Clinic, which is
an adult mental health outpatient treatment facility providing
brief and long-term psychotherapy to individuals ages 18 to 65. She
is currently developing a process-oriented psychotherapy group,
Developing Healthy Relationships, which will start in September
2012. Her primary theoretical orientation is brief psychodynamic
therapy. She is also strongly influenced by feminist theories and
epistemologies. Dr. Newman has 3 years of supervisory experience,
and in September 2012, she will begin working with two pre-doctoral
interns per year. Her preferred method of supervision is to review
segments of video-taped sessions using Interpersonal Process and
Recall. Dr. Newman’s research portfolio is concentrated on
elucidating varied aspects of women’s lives and psychologies
through the use of qualitative methodologies. In particular, she
has conducted research on university women’s understandings
of emotional abuse, narratives of British war brides, maternal
ambivalence, and the experiences of mothers of children with autism

Ambivalence. Paper presented at The Primary Healthcare
