Members of the CCPPP executive have been working closely with representatives of Association of Canadian Psychology Regulatory Organizations (ACPRO) and and the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA) Accreditation Panel to address the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on psychology training. A result of this work is the attached package of statements.
Exerpt from the document:
Attached, you will find a statement from ACPRO containing their response to licensure concerns amid the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as a statement from the CCPPP and CPA Accreditation Panel regarding their responses to accreditation- and training-related concerns. With these statements, our organizations want to communicate our commitment – to the extent possible – to minimize the disruptions that the pandemic has on students’ training, on programme operations, and ultimately on the availability of competent practitioners to meet the public need for mental health services at this time, while also maintaining the highest levels of integrity in our training, licensing, and accreditation processes. We also want to reassure our stakeholders of our commitment to maintaining an open dialogue among our organizations as this situation unfolds to ensure that we continue to be responsive to all of your needs.
