Except from the attached document introduction:
The Canadian Council of Professional Psychology Programs (CCPPP) Training Directors’ Finances Committee would like to acknowledge the important work of the CCPPP Student Finances Committee and the numerous pre-doctoral psychology residents who responded to the Residency Finances Survey Report. In particular, the remarkable vulnerability of the qualitative responses has offered a valuable window into the challenges most residents face in coping with financial insecurity during their final year of training. This is an important issue facing the training community that demands a response.
To this end, the linked report of the CCPPP Training Directors’ Finances Committee presents a synthesis of the relevant issues, and a toolbox of strategies to advocate for adequate financial support for residents.
We invite all interested parties to join us at the CCPPP Annual General Meeting on June 22, 2023 in Toronto to discuss these important issues and work together as a training community for urgent change.
