Prescribed Therapies Regulation under the Psychotherapy Act, 2007
The College of Registered Psychotherapists and Registered Mental Health Therapists of Ontario (“CRPO”) is proposing under the Psychotherapy Act, 2007 a regulation that would allow Council to make regulations prescribing therapies involving the practice of psychotherapy, governing the use of prescribed therapies, and prohibiting the use of therapies other than the prescribed therapies in the course of the practice of psychotherapy. This new regulation would apply to all Registered Psychotherapists, both in the provision of the controlled act, as part of the practice of psychotherapy and in the broader scope of practice.
