Practitioners’ Responses and Experience of the Psychotherapy Act

Dear registered health professional,

I am a Master’s student at the University of Guelph studying Couple and Family Therapy, working under the supervision of Dr. Olga Smoliak. I am seeking participants for a research study that explores practitioners’ responses and experience of the Psychotherapy Act, which was fully enforced in January 2020.

This survey will provide valuable information regarding how the Psychotherapy Act is being taken up by covered professionals and how it is impacting their relationship to their profession, other colleges and institutions. It also provides you a chance to anonymously voice your opinion and reflect on your experiences of the new legislation.

The survey should take 15 to 20 minutes to complete. The link to the survey is:
