Curriculum

Curriculum

  • One of the first actions of APTI was to draft an entry-level curriculum, formulated to offer “high minimum standards of practice” qualification.

  • June 27, 2006, Linda Page (President of Adler Professional Schools) submitted a draft of this proposed curriculum to the MOHLTC.

Review of Health Professionals Regulatory Advisory Council (HPRAC), New Directions Document

  • Proposed curriculum grounded in the recommendations of New Directions. 

  • New Directions recognizes the independent nature of psychotherapy, the diversity of its modalities, and the need to train specifically in psychotherapy and in the modality to be practiced.

New Directions Document (cont’d)

  • New Directions noted the necessity both for a common body of knowledge (nonexistent in any accessible form until APTI brought the various contributors together) and for experiential training in the modality chosen.

  • New Directions also proposed the need for equivalencies, grand-parenting and ongoing professional development, effectively inviting the creation of APTI.

Draft curriculum

Draft Curriculum

  • On April 14, 2007, APTI submitted a more fully developed draft curriculum within a long explanatory brief to the Social Policy Committee of the Ontario Legislature.

  • The curriculum is a major work of collaboration, representing evidence of the maturity of self-regulation of psychotherapy in Ontario.

Professional representation

Professional Representation

  • APTI represents a collaborative network of teaching and training institutes.

  • Psychotherapy is well placed for interprofessional collaboration: it has always had strong interdisciplinary links through the breath of its origins and continuing relations with spiritual and religious traditions and praxes, philosophy, medicine and the physical sciences, psychology, social work, the social sciences, arts, humanities, and so forth.
