‘Let's Get Practical’

“Knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice.”…….Anton Chekhov

The Association of Cooperative Counselling Therapists (ACCT) is pleased to invite you to the 2018 Annual General Meeting and Conference, Friday, October 12 and Saturday, October 13, 2018, at the Executive Suites Hotel & Conference Centre Burnaby.

Focusing on the theme of “Let’s Get Practical” the two-day conference will include professional development sessions centering on hands-on tools or guidance on all things practical to help ACCT counsellors grow themselves and their practice.  The conference also gives members an opportunity to meet and connect with fellow members.

Bernadine Fox will be our opening keynote speaker and PD session leader on Friday afternoon.  Bernadine will bring awareness to the issue of predatory therapists, doctors, and The Abuse of Power.

Following our opening speaker, Julie Sweeney will lead a workshop on Compassion Fatigue.

Comedian, Matt Turner, will join us for dinner on Friday night and will be our after-dinner entertainment.

The Annual General Meeting which takes place on Saturday morning is important to you as a shareholder in a co-operative association. Your voice and vote are important to the well-being of ACCT.  Attending the AGM is also key to staying up-to-date with your association.  It is your chance to vote on resolutions and policies and elect your board of directors.

Following the AGM there will be a live performance by LifeApp a health and wellness community for relationships.

On Saturday afternoon there are two professional development sessions the first led by Shoshana Allice, is an interactive workshop to learn the five steps to successfully adding group work to your practice and Kristy Higgins, will lead a workshop on Professional Practices which will give you the tools to deal with confidentiality exceptions and therapist absence. 

Following a short break and to end the conference Mike Stephan, ACCT Registrar, Sarah Hughes, ACCT Operations Manager and Shannon Watson, Coordinator of Membership and Administration will be on hand to answer your questions and discuss All Things Membership.
