About the SCAP Conference

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, 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. THIS YEAR'S CONFERENCE IS VIRTUAL AND WE ARE UNABLE TO RUN THE SOCIAL PROGRAM. BUT IF WE EVER GET OUT OF THIS PANDEMIC THE SOCIAL PROGRAM WILL BE BACK.

The SCAP conference is a unique experience and attracts delegates from across Australasia and the 2021 Conference will be no exception. We warmly invite all to take part and look forward to seeing you virtually.
