Chapter Update - Fall 2021 Newsletter

We hope that the start of the academic year has been peaceful and rewarding. We appreciate that our roles can be rewarding, yet exhausting. Our work is incredibly valuable to our students and campus communities and while you’re likely in the role for these reasons, it never hurts to have a reminder. Thank you for everything that you’ve done, that you continue to do and we hope you’re able to take time to care for yourself.

We wanted to provide some updates regarding what the chapter has been up to since our last update:
 
Research and Issue Papers
Over the last year, we’ve had a number of our executive members working on issue papers and conducting research on the experience of post-secondary counsellors all across Canada. We heard from nearly 100 respondents and data analysis is currently underway!

We’ll be presenting some of the findings at a CACUSS webinar on October 28th at 11:00am EST. If you are interested in attending, you can sign up here. We’re considering the mediums we’ll be presenting the data analysis and findings once we’ve finished the analysis, so stay tuned!

Practitioner Research Grant
In the spring, we introduced a post-secondary practitioner research grant to support practitioners in our efforts to shape the future of post-secondary counselling in Canada by contributing to the scholarly literature that informs evidence-based practice.

The Post-Secondary Counselling Chapter practitioner research grant is meant to showcase the value, importance, and results of applied research performed by post-secondary counsellors in the community and/or workplace. Projects ideally suited for this initiative would benefit from a small seed grant of $500 ($1000 in exceptional circumstances) over a one-year term.

Eligible applicants are members in good standing of CCPA and the PSC Chapter, and carry the CCC designation. For additional details about eligibility and to access the application form, please see the Proposal, the Application, and how it will be Evaluated on our chapter webpage: Post-Secondary Counsellors Chapter.

Executive Members
We have a fantastic team of executives, but we do have a couple of spots vacant. We’re seeking a President-Elect and a Secretary! If you’re interested in either of those roles, send an email to Sheldon at [email protected] and we can discuss the role and the experience is like.
