Matt Danbrook is an Intern in Clinical Psychology working with children, adolescents, parents, and families under the supervision of Drs. Horvath and Hopton.
His clinical and research experience include working with survivors of complex trauma. He has been trained and/or worked in community agencies, school boards, and hospitals across Canada. Matt has experience in completing a wide range of psychological assessments and provides treatment with diverse populations (e.g., First Nations, culturally diverse, various socio-economic levels). Regarding his research experience, he investigates the link between child sexual abuse and suicidal ideation among youth in foster care. He has published in this area and has presented his work at national and international conferences.
Matt takes a systems approach to helping families grow and develop whenever possible. He works with individuals and carefully considers how to incorporate the family, or other important relations in the client’s life, in the intervention.
Matt is currently on leave to complete his thesis. We look forward to him returning to OCFR soon to complete his supervised practice.
