MUN student says psychologist’s past misconduct should be disclosed

October 10, 2018

A Memorial University student who learned of a school psychologist’s past sexual misconduct from a Google search is “furious” that the university has let him continue practicing at its counselling centre. Eve Naji told CBC that she left her initial appointment with Michael Doyle at MUN’s Student Wellness and Counselling Centre feeling optimistic that he could help her, but later found that Doyle had pleaded guilty before a tribunal to sexual misconduct with a female student between 2001 and 2005. MUN Associate Academic VP Sean Cadigan said that the university signed a Memorandum of Understanding that outlined sanctions against Doyle at the time, and that he returned to full duties after the MOU’s stipulations were fulfilled. CBC
