Anyone whose work falls within the scope of the practice of psychotherapy, and who is not already registered with another Ontario regulatory college whose members can provide the controlled act of psychotherapy, should consider becoming a member of CRPO.
This self-assessment tool is intended to assist unregulated practitioners in determining if they should consider applying for registration with CRPO or another regulatory college, or if they need to consider restricting their practice. There are four components assessed by this tool:
- the scope of psychotherapy
- the controlled act of psychotherapy
- the psychotherapeutic relationship
- the entry-to-practice requirements
All seven questions should be answered and considered in determining what course of action a provider should be taking with their practice.
NB: This tool is intended as a resource to aid individuals in deciding whether to apply for registration with CRPO. It does not serve as evidence that an individual meets the registration requirements. All applications are subject to detailed review by the college.
