    **New this year** This workshop and our AGM/Town Hall will be part of the regular program, between June 23 and 25, with no pre-convention offerings.

    To register for the convention, visit https://convention.cpa.ca/. You do not need to register separately for this event.


    Workshop Summary

    Self-care has been described as an ethical imperative for professional psychologists; over the last year this topic has become increasingly salient for those involved in professional psychology training. Drawing from the ethical, professional, and empirical literature this workshop provides participants with an overview of the relevance of self-care through a training lens, focusing on both the program and the trainer (director/supervisor/psychologist). The primary goal of the workshop is to share resources and to further develop a self-care culture in our training programs.

    The first part of the workshop will review the ethical and professional underpinnings of self-care. The workshop will provide an update on the trainee and program self-care literature, examining the role that trainers and programs can play in supporting trainee self-care. A combination of small-group discussions and reporting back to the larger group will occur to identify current practices and problem-solve common obstacles.

    Building on the concept of trainers as models, the second part of the workshop will focus on self-care for trainers (directors; faculty; supervisors; etc.). The workshop will review self-care guidelines and resources for professional psychologists. Participants will engage in small-group discussions with their peers to discuss and/or further develop self-care strategies and to problem-solve common barriers to self-care.

    Learning Outcomes:

    This workshop is designed to enable participants to:

    1. Describe the ethical and professional context of self-care.

    2. Apply a training lens to the self-care literature.

    3. Develop and/or update a training program strategy for self-care.

    4. Review and refresh one’s own self-care strategy.

    Register

    In past, CPA and CCPPP have partnered to host an annual internship fair at the CPA convention. Internship programs were invited to set up a table and send a representative to showcase their program to interested prospective applicants.

    This year, we are again going virtual.  The internship fair will be hosted within the virtual CPA convention platform. Please note that registration for the CPA convention is a prerequisite for participation in the internship fair. To register for CPA, visit https://convention.cpa.ca/

    To assist CPA in coordinating this event, the CCPPP has set up this registration to collect presenter information.

    Please register here if you would like to have a "table" (e.g., Zoom breakout room) assigned to your program at this event. 

    The registration process will allow you to specify an alternate or co-presenter if desired.

    We will pass along the final list of presenters to CPA, who will run the event at the appointed time.  

    If you have any questions, please contact Susan Vandermorris at svandermorris@baycrest.org.
