Evandro Lopes BA (Hons) (McMaster), MA (Seattle), PhD (Magna Cum Laude) (Southern California)
I'm a Registered Clinical Psychologist who has worked in the field of clinical, neuro and forensic psychology for over 20 years. For a decade I held the position of Chief of Psychology at various Federal institutions followed by a position as a Clinician at the Regional Treatment Centre Psychiatric Hospital. I still maintain contracts with the Provincial Health Services Authority. I have also been teaching at Universities for two decades. I enjoy the experiential approach to teaching and learning and that is reflected in my classrooms. A fun fact is that I also use my previous experience as a professional magician to help illustrate various psychological topics!
