Thanks for the “Psychology Works” project go to all the authors and reviewers who so generously gave of their time.

It is the policy of the Canadian Psychological Association to review each fact sheet every 5 years after publication or last review. Any such document that has been published more than 5 years ago and does not explicitly state it has been reviewed and retained as an official document of the CPA, either with revisions or as originally published, should be considered as a historical reference document only.
