Dr Judi Malone


I reside in Canada where I am a registered psychologist in Alberta. I am also registered (non-practising) in Australia. I am a Certified Canadian Counsellor, am on the Canadian Register of Health Service Providers in Psychology, & am active in clinical practice, academia, & in support of the profession. I identify as an existential-feminist practitioner with a clinical practice in a rural community and for a First Nations community. 

I teach undergraduate psychology and counselling for Athabasca University, Canada’s Open University, and supervise honours and postgraduate students for CSU.

My research interests lie in the areas of professional ethics, rural practice, social justice, and interdisciplinary collaboration, and I am predominantly a qualitative researcher. Recent projects include an Alberta-wide rural human services research gathering, co-editing a book on interdisciplinary collaboration & rural practice, & a national Canadian professional practice study replicating a study underway in Australia.

I am currently the chair of the Northern and Rural Section of the Canadian Psychological Association and am on that association’s Professional Affairs Committee.
