Sir Syed University of Engineering & Technology (SSUET) Karachi signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Transformation International Society (TIS) to prepare interns through supervised clinical training to the ability to play the role of entry-level Clinical Psychologists to implement their skills effectively in psychological assessment and intervention.

Initiated about two decades ago, in Canada, the Transformation International Society (TIS) emanated from the credence that every individual has the potential to engage his senses to evolve thinking, skills and perspective in life.

The agreement is to enhance cooperation by providing students with the opportunity to practical function in a clinic and to recognize and reform abnormal behavior, cognition and emotions through the application of psychotherapeutic principles and techniques.

The association of the two organizations would facilitate the students with secure knowledge, skill and ability to reach sound judgment in the detection, evaluation and diagnosis of various psychological conditions.

Cdre (R) Engr Syed Sarfraz Ali and Prof Dr Qudsia Tariq, Board Member TIS signed the MoU on behalf of the Sir Syed University and Transformation International Society respectively, while Dr Sumbul Mujeeb, Sr Lecturer SSUET and Amima Salam, Assistant Medical Director, TIS, singed as witness.
