Thanks to all who submitted papers this week for the 3rd Annual Counselling Psychology Research Conference in British Columbia, taking place March 1-2 at the Adler School’s Vancouver Campus.

The Adler School is honored to organize and host this year’s conference, chaired by Lee D. Butterfield, Ph.D., R.Psych., Director of  our M.A. in Counselling Psychology and Master of Counselling Psychology programs.

This annual conference brings together counselling psychology researchers, trainees, educators, and practitioners from throughout British Columbia and Canada in ymultiple areas: career counselling and development, health and wellness, counselling process, therapeutic interventions, multicultural counselling and more.

This year’s conference theme and focus on “Making an Impact:  Diversity, Social Justice and Socially Responsible Practice” reflect the Adler School mission to graduate socially responsible practitioners, engage communities, and advance social justice, as well as the Canadian Psychological Association’s 2009 call for counselling psychology to “enhance and promote the positive growth, well-being, and mental health of individuals, families, groups, and the broader community.”
