What is happening with the proclamation of the controlled act of psychotherapy?

Good question. The last time you heard from the College about this subject, we were getting your feedback about a clarification document and YouTube video that was developed by Colleges with future access to this controlled act, to further explain the meaning of the controlled act. The survey, which was conducted with anyone with an interest in psychotherapy across the province, was analyzed and the result was generally that most regulated health professionals felt that the resources were helpful, while non-regulated health care providers and the general public still did not really understand.

Decisions about proclamation of the controlled act of psychotherapy rest with the government and it is in their hands at the moment. The College is actively monitoring the progress of these decisions and will provide updates as they become available.
