Fred Chou, "Enhanced CIT"

We will welcome submissions from all areas of Counselling Psychology - career counselling and development, health and wellness, counselling process and multicultural counselling (to name just a few). We invite members of the CPSY community to present their empirical work, clinical cases and developments, and theoretical presentations. Three different presentation formats are possible: Papers, Posters or Symposia.

There is no cost to attend, but pre-registration is mandatory. Pre-register for the entire day, or just the morning or afternoon session.

Morning session - 9:00am-12noon

A workshop on Critical Incident Technique (CIT) with Fred Chou, M.A., Ph.D. student (UBC). CIT is a practical and helpful research tool that can be used for evaluation and joint inquiry.  It is an approach for examining what helps and hinders a particular phenomenon, such as interventions, practices, and programs. This workshop will help students and community members understand the basics of CIT as well as its recent developments--the Enhanced Critical Incident Technique (ECIT) and Participatory Critical Incident Technique (PaCIT). Fred has published a paper on the development and use of PaCIT in the Canadian Journal of Counselling and Psychotherapy.  He is currently a 3rd year doctoral candidate at UBC, and has also written articles about research and collaborative practice for the Institute of Families.

This portion of the day is co-sponsored by the Ministry of Child and Family Development.

Afternoon session - 1:00-4:30pm

The primary purpose of this event is to offer MA-CPSY faculty, students and alumni an opportunity to showcase their empirical, theoretical and clinical work through a variety of clinical and research presentations. We are therefore issuing a call to all MA-CPSY faculty, alumni and students to consider presenting their work during this one day event.
