Tell the Ontario Government to pass the Controlled Act of Psychotherapy!
Until the controlled act is passed, the provision of psychotherapy services continues to be in the public domain. No legislation outlines who can provide psychotherapy services, despite the creation of the College of Psychotherapists.
This incomplete legislative framework does nothing to protect patient safety as the only thing that is restricted is who can use the title “Psychotherapist.” Until the controlled act is passed five professions, which includes social workers, are being denied access to use that title.
