Students will assemble teams of 2-4 (must include 1 CPCF student) to participate in this opportunity to “pitch” a creative communication campaign.

Masters of Psychotherapy and Spirituality program (Counselling and Art Therapy streams)
The Master of Psychotherapy and Spirituality (MPS) program is an academic, professional degree that develops spiritually-informed counselors, psychotherapists, and art therapists who are well grounded in the integration of psychological and spiritual knowledge as a holistic foundation for effective therapeutic practice. The MPS degree has been developed in response to an expressed need for formal graduate counselling training that integrates psychology and spirituality. Prior to 2023, the program could be taken as either a 54-credit Counselling (or Core) stream, or a 66-credit Art Therapy stream. Beginning with 2023 intake, it is expected that both the Counseling and Art Therapy streams will be equally valued at 60 credits. As with all St. Stephen's programs, the MPS is openly accessible to people from any faith tradition or worldview. The program is offered through a blend of online and in-person courses, and can easily be taken from a distance while residing in Canada. There will be a free information session held on January 18 at 9 AM MST. Please click here to sign up. Applications for the 2023 intake are due February 1, 2023. Please visit uab.ca/mps or contact email@example.com for more information.

Professional Development Opportunities
The VSN runs about an 80 person volunteer program, which provides 24/7 services and support to victims and survivors of crime and tragic circumstances throughout the Niagara Region. Our volunteers dedicate a minimum of two 12 hour shifts a month. While on call for their shift, they may be dispatched on-scene with a partner or asked to provide telephone support to victims. Volunteers may have the chance to work side by side with police and other community agencies such as CARSA or SADV unit. We are looking to do a new volunteer training class beginning in January and running until April (I have attached all important dates). We are looking for individuals (age 21+) to think about applying to our volunteer position. These volunteers would be trained in the areas of crisis intervention and the ethics of helping, communication, domestic violence, sexual assault, safety planning, sudden death (including suicide and homicide), elder abuse, property crimes, multi-casualty occurrences, as well as the importance of self-care and debriefing.
