    As readers may be aware, the COVID-19 pandemic has triggered much discussion among our membership and related stakeholder groups about moving to virtual interviews for the 2020-21 season. Key benefits include include minimizing stress and financial cost to applicants. Feedback from our membership and students has indicated strong support for making virtual interviews "required" as opposed to "preferred," as a means to avoid potential equity problems that may arise if sites permit on-site visits for local candidates.

    In light of this, the CCPPP executive is strongly recommending that internship sites offer exclusively virtual interviews for the 2020/21 application cycle.

    This recommendation was disseminated to our membership by email on June 15, 2020.  Members with questions or feedback about this recommendation are encouraged to participate in the discussion board thread on this topic, or email any member of the executive directly.

    From the document linked below:

    The Council of Chairs of Training Councils (CCTC) provides this guidance document for decision-makers in doctoral programs, practica and externships, internships, and postdoctoral residences to use in considering resumption of in-person psychological services and training in Health Service Psychology (HSP). The guidance includes general considerations as well as some specific recommendations. The CCTC recognizes, however, that every training program and training site is different, and that the considerations and recommendations provided in this document may not apply to all situations. Further, although the guidance provided in this document is intended to be comprehensive, it is not exhaustive. Indeed, more specific guidance is not possible due to variability in institutions, available resources, and the laws, orders, and regulations affecting each training site.

    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.
