Case Consultation Support Network
APNS is committed to facilitating networking among psychologists. One way we are doing this is to initiate a Case Consultation Network. We have a group of psychologists who have agreed to be on our roster for the Network. This service is now open to APNS members only.
How it works:
- Any APNS member who wishes to consult with another psychologist on a case, can contact APNS and provide basic information on the case and what expertise they require for the consultation.
- Those on the Consultant Roster who fit the parameters would receive an e‐mail from the APNS office with some basic information about the case.
- If the psychologist is available to consult on this case, the APNS office would provide contact information so the two psychologists could connect.
If you are interested in taking advantage of this service please see the Case Consultation Form.
Please note that although APNS will assist in connecting psychologists through this service, APNS does not take any responsibility for the arrangements made once the contact has been initiated.
Cultural Diversity Networking
APNS is developing a Network of psychologists who would be willing to serve as peer consultants to psychologists specifically on cultural diversity issues. This comes out of discussions from the Cultural Diversity Committee about the need to provide a forum for psychologists to be able to discuss diversity‐related issues that they encounter in their client work.
In addition, through this interaction, we hope more psychologists may become involved in promoting diversity in our discipline. The committee has adopted a broad definition for referring to cultural diversity:
The term “cultural diversity” is meant to include not only diverse ethnic groups but any group which would be considered a non‐majority, or an under‐represented “culture” within the field of psychology (e.g., LGBTQ, language, and rural populations, etc.).
Pro Bono Services
This assists members in finding psychologists who wish to offer informal ethical consultation therapy or supervision; it is not intended to provide advice regarding ethical decision-making or advice on legal or disciplinary matters.
Peer Support Services
To provide a link with psychologists willing to offer confidential support to members who would like to talk with a colleague about a particular personal or professional situation. This is not meant to provide psychological counselling or intervention.
ALS Psychological Support Roster
Psychologists who are willing to provide pro bono services for those with ALS or family members who support ALS sufferers.
Peer support Telepsychology Roster
One frequently expressed challenge is the difficulty for Psychologists to access psychological services to meet their own personal needs due to dual relationships/potential conflict of interest. A recent MOU has made it possible for Psychologists within Atlantic Canada to provide telehealth services within the region.
We have a list of Psychologists interested in providing fee for service telehealth counselling to Psychologists within Atlantic Canada. This list would then be distributed to members from all four provinces.
