Mr Steve Campbell, MA
Hello, my name is Steve Campbell and I have been a psychologist for almost thirty years. My professional background is quite diverse.
First, in the 1990s, during my studies, I developed an interest in stress and crisis situations. Consequently, my master’s thesis focused on stress in a police environment.
Following this, with my knowledge of stress and crisis, I began my career on humanitarian missions abroad in the context of armed conflicts: in Rwanda, Albania, and later Kosovo.
I acted as a consulting psychologist for local intervention teams. I worked for French and Canadian organizations.
I returned to Quebec in the early 2000s and was recruited by a private employee assistance program firm: Jacques Lamarre et associés (now merged with the Morneau-Sheppel group). At that time, I provided individual psychotherapeutic follow-up to a diverse clientele, as well as group interventions during workplace crises.
At the same time, I continued my humanitarian involvement with the organization Médecins du Monde (MDM), at their Montreal office. My role was to offer psychological support to the workers of various community organizations.
Then, in 2008, I returned to my native Abitibi, for the Centre intégré de santé et de services sociaux de l’Abitibi-Témiscamingue (CISSS-AT). My work consisted mainly of individual psychotherapeutic follow-ups with a clientele suffering from various problems, such as adjustment disorders, anxiety and depressive disorders, personality disorders, and gender dysphoria.
I remained at the CISSS-AT for almost fifteen years. During this period, I was also able to act as a clinical supervisor for the Centre d’aide aux victimes d’actes criminels (CAVAC) of Abitibi-Témiscamingue, as well as for doctoral students in psychology at the CISSS-AT.
I have also developed an expertise in assessment, particularly psychometric assessments and the evaluation of gender dysphoria.
Today, propelled by the desire to take on new challenges, I am entering into a more autonomous and private practice. On the other hand, I continue my involvement in public service, as an administrator at the Ordre des psychologues du Québec since 2018.
In my spare time, I enjoy outdoor activities, such as hiking, snowshoeing, and canoeing – activities in which my Bernese Mountain Dog, “Fay”, also participates.
In addition, I am involved in the maintenance and protection committee of the network of hiking trails in my region, as well as in various environmental causes.
