Hospital Any institution legally licensed as a medical or surgical facility in the country in which it is located, that is a) primarily engaged in providing diagnostic and therapeutic facilities for clinical and surgical diagnosis, treatment and care of injured and sick persons by or under the supervision of a staff of physicians; and b) not a place of rest, a place for the aged, a nursing or convalescent home or institution, or a long-term care facility.

PSYCHOLOGICAL SERVICES Psychotherapy is not easily described in general statements. It varies depending on the personalities of the psychologist and patient, and the particular problems you are experiencing. There are many different methods I may use to deal with the problems that you hope to address. Psychotherapy is not like a medical doctor visit. Instead, it calls for a very active effort on your part. In order for the therapy to be most successful, you will have to work on things we talk about both during our sessions and at home. Psychotherapy can have benefits and risks. Since therapy often involves discussing unpleasant aspects of your life, you may experience uncomfortable feelings like sadness, guilt, anger, frustration, loneliness, and helplessness. On the other hand, psychotherapy has also been shown to have many benefits. Therapy often leads to better relationships, solutions to specific problems, and significant reductions in feelings of distress. But there are no guarantees of what you will experience. Our first few sessions will involve an evaluation of your needs. By the end of the evaluation, I will be able to offer you some first impressions of what our work will include and a treatment plan to follow, if you decide to continue with therapy. You should evaluate this information along with your own opinions of whether you feel comfortable working with me. Therapy involves a large commitment of time, money, and energy, so you should be very careful about the therapist you select. If you have questions about my procedures, we should discuss them whenever they arise. If your doubts persist, I will be happy to help you set up a meeting with another mental health professional for a second opinion.
Discrimination and Harassment No discrimination, interference, restrictions or coercion shall be exercised or practised by the University or the Union with respect to any staff member in regard to any matter to do with terms and conditions of employment by reason of race, creed, colour, sex, marital status, nationality, ancestry, place of origin, political or religious affiliations, sexual orientation, citizenship, age, record of offences, family status, handicap, language (unless a bona fide occupational requirement of a position), nor by reason of membership or non-membership or activity or lack of activity in the Union.

Harassment means engaging in a course of vexatious comment or conduct that is known, or ought reasonably to be known, as unwelcome.
