    Towards Independent Practice offers clinical psychotherapy supervision as part of the suite of services and training available to interns, new graduates, and seasoned therapists.

    Calling all Interns: Interns require one hour of clinical supervision per week throughout their internship. All our supervisors are registered with Yorkville University, and familiar with Yorkville’s requirements.

    New Graduates: As a qualifying member of CRPO, a graduate psychotherapist is required to get one hour of clinical supervision per four to five hours of client contact time. The average graduate psychotherapist in Ontario will require regular weekly supervision until they have become a registered psychotherapist with the CRPO.

    Seasoned Therapists: Once registered, supervision drops to one hour of clinical supervision after ten client contact hours, and this must continue until 1000 hours of client contact hours have been reached.

    All applicants to CRPO must complete at least 50 percent of their supervision hours in individual or dyadic forms, and the other 50 percent can be in group form. Towards Independent Practice offers the full range of options.

          Group Psychotherapy Supervision | 2 Hours $95 plus HST

          Dyadic Psychotherapy Supervision | 1 Hour $80 plus HST

           Individual Psychotherapy Supervision | 1 Hour $130 plus HST

    We have brought in the best supervisors in Ontario to help you with your supervision. All the supervisors on our team have extensive experience. Check out the team.

    Booking supervision could not be easier. To book your sessions, head over to Towards Independent Practice and book your supervision today.

    Join us at our Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Friday, November 18!

    Where: Online. You’ll receive a confirmation email that includes the Zoom link when you register.

    When: Friday, November 18 from 1-4 p.m.

    We are thrilled to announce that in the last two years we have gone from just over 350 members to over 1,000 members! That is unprecedented growth in our 30-year existence. More members mean we have more capacity to bring you more value. For instance, we will be announcing a new member benefit at the AGM!











    Everyone who attends has the chance to win one of THREE $50 gift certificates donated by Caversham Booksellers www.CavershamBooksellers.com and other prizes!

    The AGM is also where you get a chance to create the change you wish to see...by voting! Because we are so numerous now, our quorum requires more people. If you can’t make it, you can vote by proxy.

     Here’s what’s happening:

    • Confirmation of incoming Board
    • Approval of financial statements
    • Presentation of Honours of the Society Award
    • Introduction of a new member benefit
    • Prize draws!

    We look forward to seeing you!

    Click here to register for the AGM.

    Can't come? Submit your vote by proxy!

    Our AGM is where we conduct our business: approve revisions to our by-laws, elect our board of directors, approve our financial statements from the previous fiscal year and make important decisions regarding our association. We also bring you up to date on what your Board and committees have been up to and answer any questions you may have.

    As a member in good standing of OSRP, you have the privilege of voting and having your voice heard. One way to do this is to attend our AGM and use your vote there. However, if you are unable to attend in person, you may still weigh in by assigning someone else to vote for you by proxy.

    What is a proxy and why is it important?

    proxy is a member to whom you assign the authority to vote on your behalf.

    OSRP has experienced monumental growth in its membership, which means that quorum for our AGM — the minimum number of members who must be present to make the proceedings valid — has also increased. If we do not have quorum, we cannot proceed with the AGM.

    If you register to attend our AGM, there is nothing more you need to do. You will be able to vote in person during the meeting.

    How do I assign a proxy?

    Assigning a proxy is easy. If you know a *voting member in good standing who will be attending the AGM, ask if they are willing to be your proxy. If yes, complete our short Proxy Application Form and enter their name as your proxy.

    That’s it!

    *Voting members are Clinical, Qualifying, Student, Honorary and Retired members.

    When The Couch Isn’t Enough

    Time: 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. EDT

    A Virtual Event Via Zoom Videoconference.

    About The Presentation

    Morning Session:

    The Absent Witness: Mourning, Virtually

    Is it possible for us to mourn the losses of 2020 and 2021 when, in 2022, we are at best semi-post-Covid? Do we analysts have the requisite psychic and reflective space to help our patients with something that continues to upend the quotidian for all of us?  This presentation explores the impact of existential crises (Covid, political, social, and climate) on our and our patients' ability to mourn within and outside analytic space. 

    Afternoon Session:

    Sequel: Can We Transcend The Transference

    Therapeutic sequels — post-termination friendships between therapist and patient—are an open secret. Although they are hardly uncommon, sequels are rarely named, much less explored. Using the unfinished story of a good treatment and its yet-to-be-defined ending to illustrate, I query and unpack the complexities of treatment sequels for both patient and therapist.

    Accreditation:

    This program has been approved by the Ontario Psychological Association to offer continuing education for psychologists and psychological associates. This program meets the criteria for 4 continuing education credits. This event is an accredited group learning activity (section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada, and approved by the Canadian Psychiatric Association (CPA). The specific opinions and content of this event are not necessarily those of the CPA, and are the responsibility of the organizer(s) alone.

    On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Ontario Society of Registered Psychotherapists, we invite you to join us for our 30th Annual General Meeting and Town Hall on Friday, November 18, 2022 from 12-4 p.m. The AGM and Town Hall will be held via Zoom.

    The theme for this AGM is “Acknowledging The Land Within.” The back story fuelling this Annual Report is born out of OSRP’s intention to embed Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) principles into every aspect of the organization as a demonstration of our intention to address issues of structural racism, oppression and marginalization that impact the lives of both psychotherapists and the communities they serve. To do this with true efficacy, we must always begin by dismantling the first offense that continues to this day in myriads of ways and speaks to the call for Truth and Reconciliation across this Nation. We are committed to the work that kind of growth requires because we are committed to being a place where RPs in Ontario who intersect across social, cultural, religious, racial, ability and other dimensions feel represented, respected, protected, connected and advocated for. 

    If there’s anything you can do to give back to your association, read through the AGM package and engage with the discussion and voting at the AGM. And, if you want to be even more engaged, consider joining the Board or one of the committees — we’re really busy and need all hands on deck! 

    Your tasks in preparing for the AGM:

    • Pre-register in advance by Wednesday, November 16.
    • Read the Annual Report so you can discuss and vote.
    • Consider volunteering for a Board or committee role.
    • Read up on the Board and committee positions and consider being nominated on November 18.

    We look forward to seeing you!
