The College of Psychologists of Ontario states that members who believe that this would not be appropriate at this time are free to make their own judgment about when it is in the best interests of the client, the community and themselves to see clients again in person.
continues to recommend that when practical and clinically appropriate, members
are encouraged to provide services virtually rather than having clients receive
psychological services in person.
In cases where clients are returning to in-person service, members and clients must remember the need for physical distancing and proper infection control.
In that context of a return
to the office during the COVID-19 pandemic, which is still very present, we will
ask you to please read and sign the following 2 documents (the consent plus the appropriate waiver of liability.
If you can print them at home, sign them and bring them to the office, it will save time. Otherwise, please read them carefully and you can sign them rapidly in the office.
Thank you for your cooperation.
