Complaints about Members
Concerns the College Cannot Address
The College can only deal with complaints against members of the College of Psychologists. If there are concerns about a member of another profession, it is appropriate to contact that professional’s own College.
Allegations of Professional Misconduct or Incompetence against a member may be referred to the Discipline Committee by the Complaints or Executive Committee.
The Regulated Health Professions Act requires that Regulated Health Professionals and the operators of some facilities report sexual abuse by a regulated health professional to that health professionals College.
Sexual Contact with Clients is Always Wrong
Sexual contact, in any form, between a psychologist or psychological associate and a recipient of psychological services is strictly prohibited by law and by the College. The profession maintains a zero tolerance policy for any form of sexual contact/abuse of a client by a member. Such conduct by a psychologist or psychological associate is always unacceptable under any circumstances.
