MESSAGE FROM THE CONFERENCE CHAIR

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, I am delighted to welcome all the delegates and attendees to Montreal, Quebec, for the second annual McGill Summer Institute for School Psychology that will take place on August 23 and 24, 2017. This is Canada’s first event dedicated solely to the practice of school psychology, and it will give participants a platform to exchange ideas, discover novel opportunities, reacquaint with colleagues, meet new friends, and broaden their knowledge. The conference will held be in the Frank Dawson Adams Auditorium at McGill University; an iconic facility in the heart of beautiful downtown Montreal.

The conference program will feature workshops by Peg Dawson, Ed.D. (Centre for Learning and Attention Disorders), Elizabeth Laugeson, Psy.D. (University of California, Los Angeles Semel Institute), Sonia Lupien, Ph.D. (Université de Montréal), as well as William Harvey, Ph.D., a faculty member of McGill's own Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education. This professional conference that brings together school psychologists and students from across North America aims to provide and consists of a series of high quality professional development workshops for school psychologists, conducted by experts in the field. Workshops will be applied in nature and contribute to the continuing education of attendees, such as mandated by their professional order. All of the members of the local Organizing Committee from McGill University wish you a superb conference experience and a memorable stay in Montreal. Welcome to McGill! Bienvenue à McGill!
