Group Practitioner Development Award for clinicians with a minimum 2 years’ active practice in group psychotherapy
Up to 2 Awards of $500 each are available annually to support experiential training or supervision.
These Awards are named for Dr. John Salvendy, the first president of the Canadian Group Psychotherapy Association (1980-1982).
Salvendy was a very notable contributor to the group psychotherapy field in Canada
and abroad for over four decades, as an expert clinician, educator, and mentor/supervisor.
Through the Salvendy Development Award, the Canadian Group Psychotherapy
Foundation aims to encourage this same perspective on continuous learning among
Canadian practitioners of group psychotherapy.
The Salvendy Development
Award is open to clinical practitioners with a minimum of two years of active group
psychotherapy practice. The Award aims to support the development of group
therapy practitioners by facilitating experiential education in one of two ways:
through participation in an experiential workshop or institute, or through supervision.
