MESSAGE FROM THE CONFERENCE CHAIR
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2018 McGill Summer Institute for School Psychology that will take place on May 31st and June 1st. For the third year, we invite school psychologists and students from Quebec and beyond to come share knowledge, reconnect with colleagues, and exchange ideas. Like every year, the conference will held at McGill University, in downtown Montreal.
The conference program will feature workshops by Jonathan Weiss, PhD (York University), Jessica Toste, PhD (University of Texas at Austin), Sam Goldstein, PhD (University of Utah), and Jeffrey Derevensky, PhD (chair of the Department of Educational and Counselling Psychology at McGill University). This year again, 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. As mandated by professional orders, our applied workshops will contribute to the continuing education of attendees. 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!
