    Please join our own Dr. Lesley Lutes, CCPPP Past-President, with Dr. Antoinette Minniti and Dr. Scott Sperling representing the APA Education Directorate to talk about "truth in advertising" in our training programs, and a walk through of a new web-based tool to help you get the word out.

    Registration is required at:



    CCPPP member program representatives may be more or less aware that there has been a movement towards using consistent language in describing our training experiences gaining momentum in the US training community over the past decade.

    A specific "A Taxonomy for Education and Training in Professional Psychology Health Service Specialties" has been adopted as a policy by APA. The APPIC directory service has restructured the way that member programs are being asked to describe their offerings in accordance with this. The CCPPP has been involved in stakeholder conversations about this taxonomy and sees potential application and benefit to our membership.

    For more background, please see the APA website devoted to the topic or our members-only discussion board thread.

    At our June 2020 Annual General Meeting, our membership began some productive conversation about making more intentional efforts in our Canadian training community to apply the "truth in advertising" logic that underpins the Taxonomy. As you may know, 2020 was a rough year, and 2021 hasn't offered a ton to redeem it.  Follow-up conversations have been deferred, and we are eager to resume making progress at this time.
