The National School Counsellors & Psychologists (SCAP) Conference is an annual conference held each year in November. It is held over two days and in the last few years has made its home at the stunning location, the Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre. 

The SCAP Conference is specifically designed to provide continuing professional development to psychologists and counsellors working within a school context. It aims to provide the most up to date research on adolescent mental health as well as opportunities to acquire new therapeutic skills. This is achieved through a combination of informative keynote presentations, as well as workshops; providing the scope for more in-depth, interactive and hands-on learning.

One of the aims of The SCAP conference is to provide opportunities for school psychologists and counsellors to meet others in the field, in order to broaden networks and working relationships. A feature of the SCAP conference is the professional networking session at the end of the first day of the conference. This session provides an opportunity for delegates to enjoy the social and professional interaction of meeting other colleagues, and indulge in a little self care by way of refreshments and entertainment.

The SCAP conference is a unique experience and attracts delegates from across Australasia.
