Dr. Barb Backs-Dermott
I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Calgary in 2002. I am an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Calgary in the Department of Psychology. I have been actively involved in research, publishing journal articles and presenting at professional conferences across North America.
I provided individual and group therapy for the past 20 years within the public health system in a specialty mental health clinic. In that setting, I had extensive experience training future Clinical Psychologists. I supervised numerous Clinical Psychology Ph.D. students and Clinical Psychology Predoctoral Residents, providing them with specialized training in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy.
I began a collaboration with other CBT specialists as part of Connect Psychological Services, and have been offering individual and group therapy with Connect Psychological Services since 2014.
I have been in solo private practice since November 2022, as the owner of Backs-Dermott Psychological Services.
