Full-day, in-person workshop: Your Professional Will – A Facilitated Workshop

Friday, April 12, 2024 – 9 am to 4:00 pm.
Mount Saint Vincent University, Rosaria Building, Don MacNeil Room #401,
Presented by Kim O’Connor, R.Psych., with Special Guest, Tanya L. Butler, Touchstone Legal.

Workshop Overview:

Although we may not like to think about it, life circumstances can happen to any of us at any time which can impact our ability to act to ensure the best interests of our clients. 

The purpose of a professional will for a psychologist is to ensure that their clients receive appropriate care and support even if the psychologist is unable to continue their practice due to unforeseen circumstances, such as illness, disability, or death. At the basic level, it is a document that gives instructions to a designated individual regarding your psychology practice as well as the authority to act on your behalf in the event of your death or incapacitation. The goal of this workshop is to provide information and examples about professional wills for psychologists on how to devise the plan and create such a document.  Bring your laptop – this is a facilitated workshop designed to have participants start to create a draft document that day!
