MESSAGE FROM THE CONFERENCE CHAIR
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2019 McGill Summer Institute for School Psychology that will take place on the 23rd and 24th of May. For the fourth year, we invite school psychologists, mental health professionals, and students from Quebec and beyond to come share knowledge, reconnect with colleagues, and exchange ideas. The conference, as always, will be held at McGill University, in downtown Montreal, QC.
The conference program will feature workshops by Stephen Lewis, PhD (University of Guelph), Gerard Gioia, PhD (George Washington University School of Medicine), Jessica Bleuer, MA, Med, CCC, RDT (Concordia University), and McGill’s very own Nate Fuks, PhD (Director of McGill’s Psychoeducational and Counselling Clinic). We have recruited experts in the field to provide high quality workshops in the hope to promote the development of evidence-based practices to improve the mental health and academic achievement of children. Our speakers will cover current research and provide clinical tools on topics such as, non-suicidal self-injury and crisis intervention, concussion and traumatic brain injury management in schools, alternative therapy techniques, and LGBQT issues among youth in schools.
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, for the third year, we are pleased to once again invite students to share their research at the poster session held during our wine and cheese reception. 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!
All of the members of the Organizing Committee from McGill University wish you a superb conference experience and a memorable stay in Montreal.
Welcome to McGill! Bienvenue à McGill!
