THE SCHOOL COUNSELLORS & PSYCHOLOGISTS (SCAP) CONFERENCE IS GOING VIRTUAL IN 202012-13th November 2020 - VIRTUAL EVENT
The National School Counsellors & Psychologists (SCAP) Conference is an annual conference held over 2 days each November. Due to the COVID 19 crisis, the 2020 SCAP Conference is going virtual. The ongoing crowd and travel restrictions across large parts of the country leave us with no certainty that we will be able to run a face to face event this year. Therefore, in the interests of some certainty we have made the difficult decision to hold the 2020 SCAP Conference Virtually. We will certainly miss seeing everyone in person but are excited to be proceeding with our highly regarded SCAP Conference. We are hopeful that a virtual event might provide an opportunity for more people in regional/remote areas to attend.
Early Bird Extended until 8th October - What a year!
Early Bird Registration: $330 inc GST (by 30th September 2020)
Standard Registration: $385 inc GST (before 5th November 2020)
Melbourne: 12-13th November 2020
The SCAP Conference this year is a VIRTUAL EVENT. Held over two days, it will combine keynote sessions with short, active segments to provide variation and encourage maximum engagement. To provide additional flexibility, a recording of all sessions will be available to delegates for a period of time post conference.
Conference Opening: The fabulous and fun conference opening will again form part of this year's SCAP conference. Join us for virtual cocktails and canapes. Bring along your favourite drink and a small list of ingredients to make your own with directions from Michele Chevalley Hedge, or just come along and join the fun. A list of ingredients will be sent to you prior. The conference opening is optional.
Thursday Program: 9am-4.15pm
Friday Program 9am - 3.45pm
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.
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 social program, usually consisting of the CONFERENCE OPENING on the eve of the conference; an opportunity for delegates to enjoy the social and professional interaction of meeting other colleagues, and a little indulgence, and the CONFERENCE DINNER on the Thursday evening.
An important part of the collegial feature of the conference, there will be a social segment in 2020. It may look and feel a bit different but as always, we endeavour to deliver!
The SCAP conference is a unique experience and attracts delegates from across Australasia and the 2020 virtual event will be no exception. We warmly invite all to take part and look forward to seeing you virtually.
