Psychologist Research & Resources

Welcome to my Research page.  Psychologists offer a science-based practice in order to provide you with the most effective and efficient ways to resolve your problems.  I have added some articles and information which may be of interest to you.  If you are a clinician and wish to access the Professional Portal, please contact Dr. Piché for further instructions.

Do you need psychological services? Taking the time to explore your personal difficulties is the first step to determining how to solve your problems.  Speaking to a Registered Psychologist can be very helpful in deciding what you want to address and improve.  This problem exploration guide can help you to summarize your thoughts about your current difficulties or concerns.  Text created by Dr. L. Piché. Problem Exploration by Dr. Pich.pdf

Learning to better manage your thinking is an important part of psychological health.  Here is an outline that discusses frequent thinking errors which people tend to make.  These can negatively impact your relationships, your decisions and your ability to solve problems effectively.  Stemming from cognitive therapy techniques, identifying poor thinking patterns is an essential part of improving your relationships, your mood and yourself.   Original text created by Dr. J. Hanley, J. Lukjanczuk and Dr. L. Piché (2010). Learning about thinking

Learning to better manage your relaxation, breathing and anxiety is also an important aspect of psychological health.  Here are some meditation instructions which you may find helpful.  Text summarized by E. Reeh taken from Cormier, W.H. & Cormier, L.S. (1991). Interviewing strategies for helpers. Brooks/Cole: Belmont, CA.
