In her clinical practice, Dr. Katherine Péloquin takes an integrative approach, stemming from cognitive-behavioural and humanist theories. Eager to offer a service that reflects best practices, Dr. Péloquin keeps abreast of the most recent advances in assessment and intervention, in addition to adapting her interventions to the specific problems and needs of the individuals and couples she works with. Although her clinical practice is diverse, she has expertise in infertility and medically assisted procreation.
Dr. Péloquin completed a doctorate in clinical psychology (PhD) at the University of Ottawa in 2010, where she was trained in cognitive-behavioural therapy and emotion-focused couple therapy. Since 2012, she has been a professor in the Department of Psychology at the Université de Montréal and a researcher at the Interdisciplinary research centre on intimate relationship problems and sexual abuse (CRIPCAS). Inspired by her clinical practice, her research addresses various themes, including marital problems, the effectiveness of couple therapy, attachment, sexuality and infertility. Dr. Péloquin has directed the research program in conjugal therapy at the CCCF since 2011. This unique program in Canada aims to better understand the factors that contribute to the success of couple therapy and to improve assessment and intervention work with couples, in addition to providing clinicians and clients with personalized profile data on their romantic relationship and on the progress of therapy.
In addition, Dr. Péloquin teaches psychology in both the undergraduate and doctoral programs at the Université de Montréal, directs the Laboratoire d’étude du couple, supervises students in their research projects and offers training to various health professionals.
