The Canadian Council of Professional Psychology Programs (CCPPP) executive is seeking nominations for our annual Awards for Excellence in Professional Training (ccppp.ca/awards). Please consider nominating your amazing colleagues and/or mentors for their outstanding contributions to the professional psychology training of graduate students/interns by December 31, 2020!
Contributions can include teaching in the area of professional psychology, supervision in practica and internships, development of textbooks on professional training, administrative mentorship, citizenship within the larger training environment, and the development of innovative programs for professional training of graduate students/interns. It is not necessary that a recipient of the award excel in more than one of those areas of professional training. Past award recipients have often made multiple contributions over a period of time. Only psychologists who are members of internship sites or university programs that are CCPPP members are eligible for the award. Nominations may be made, though, by any graduate student(s)/interns(s) in psychology who has received or is currently receiving training from an eligible psychologist, or by any psychologist(s) in a CCPPP program.
Full details on the award and nomination process can be found on the CCPPP website at ccppp.ca/awards.
Nominations should be sent to Sara Hagstrom at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 31, 2020.
These should include a nomination letter containing information about the basis of the experience the nominator has had with the nominee, relevant evidence to document the person’s excellence in professional training, and may also include letters of support from the nominee’s peers, as well as opinions of current and former graduate students/interns.
Please share broadly with colleagues and students in your programs!
