Collaboration with ACPRO on a working definition of psychologist impairment

Through a joint effort between the Council of Professional Associations of Psychologists (CPAP) and Association of Canadian Psychology Regulatory Organizations (ACPRO) a definition for psychologist impairment has been developed. All CPAP member Associations have endorsed this definition, making this the first nationally recognized and acknowledged definition of this important concept.
