Derek Truscott, Ph.D.


I obtained registration as a psychologist in 1987, earned my doctorate in clinical psychology from the University of Windsor in 1989, and have been on the faculty at the University of Alberta since 1997. I have practiced in hospital, community, group home, rehabilitation, and private settings. 

I can’t imagine a better career than psychology—it is always interesting, often satisfying, and ultimately deeply rewarding. I take particular pride in aspiring to be a good therapist and striving to inspire others to do likewise.
