“I started as a placement student at ACT in the final year of my master’s degree. During this time, I received many opportunities to practice the skills that I had learned in my undergraduate and graduate studies. Right from the beginning, I was welcomed by everyone and made to feel part of the team. Whether I was shadowing behavioural therapists on the floor, learning to implement client programs with clients or working on my practicum assignments, I always felt supported and knew that there was always someone that I could turn to if I needed help.”
