Definition of Counselling Psychology

In 2009, CPA adopted a formal definition of Counselling Psychology, describing the nature of this distinct specialization within professional psychology. To download a copy of the definition, click here.

The definition was the result of a 3-year consultation process between the Section Executive, Section Membership, and the Executive Committee for a Canadian Definition of Counselling Psychology (composed of the following CPA members: Robinder Bedi (co-chair), Beth Haverkamp (co-chair), Romeo Beatch, Douglas Cave, José Domene, Greg Harris, Anne Marie Mikhail).
