MESSAGE FROM THE CONFERENCE CHAIR
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is a pleasure to welcome you to the 2020
McGill Summer Institute for School Psychology that will take place on the 26th and
27th of May. For the fifth year, we invite school psychologists, mental health
professionals, and students from Quebec and beyond to come to share knowledge,
reconnect with colleagues, and exchange ideas. The conference, as always,
will be held at McGill University, in Montreal, QC.
The conference program will include four guest speakers who will provide workshops
with applied suggestions and practices across various domains of school psychology.
Furthermore, it is with great excitement that we are announcing the addition of three
francophone workshops for this year’s conference, a first since the beginning of the
Summer Institute for School Psychology.
As mandated by professional orders, our applied workshops will contribute to the
continuing education of attendees. This conference is an excellent opportunity for
mental health professionals and students alike to foster new relationships and promote professional development. Additionally, we are pleased to once again invite students to share their research at the poster session held during our conference. All abstracts undergo a blind review process and are evaluated by McGill professors in the field of school psychology. Further, all posters are automatically considered for our yearly poster award!
From the members of the Organizing Committee of McGill University, and the
department of Educational and Counselling Psychology, we wish you a superb
conference experience and a memorable stay in Montreal.
Welcome to McGill! Bienvenue à McGill!
