Violence (psychological, physical, sexual) in the home has increased worldwide during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Any CPA member, or any member of a provincial/territorial association of psychology, who purchased the Clinic/Business insurance package through BMS, in the year ending June 2020, and wishes information or advice about practice disruption coverage as the result of COVID-19, please contact Chris Blom at Miller Thomson email@example.com
The Canadian Psychological Association rests on a foundation of policy and principle of anti-discrimination and respect for the dignity of persons. These policies and principles are embedded in the Code of Ethics which guide the science, practice and education of psychology in Canada.
2020 has challenged Canadians, and citizens of the world, to be brave; to overcome stresses to our health and welfare and to do it with kindness, respect, and compassion. Anti-Black racism jeopardizes our success as individuals, families, communities, workplaces and societies. Our success depends on our willingness and ability to look after ourselves and each other and to work together. There is no room for racism, prejudice or systemic discrimination in a just society.
A just society enables all its members to contribute, to thrive, and to make a positive difference when facing fortune and when facing adversity. The CPA invites people to stand together, to stand up and to stand close against anti-Black racism and discrimination of all kinds.
The CPA Title Task Force has produced a new Position Paper: CPA Task Force on Title: Model Language Suggestions (PDF).
At the 2020 Annual General Meeting, the CPA was glad to announce the launch of its 2020 Strategic Plan. The plan was developed in consultation with CPA members and prospective members, affiliates as well as its Board and staff. It defines the CPA’s mission, vision, guiding principles, operating principles, as well as six strategic goals which will guide the organization’s activity from 2020 through 2025. I would like to invite you to review our new Strategic Plan and consider how you can help your association work for you.”
