Professional Training Programs

Since 1993, Changeways (formerly at UBC Hospital) and Changeways Clinic have been offering educational programs for professionals on evidence-based mental health practices. Programs have been presented in almost every province and territory of Canada, as well as in Australia, New Zealand, and Hong Kong. Changeways Clinic is an approved provider of CE credits through the Canadian Psychological Association (more about this here).

Our goal in these programs is to provide quality content in an entertaining and engaging format. Many of our programs come with an extensive resource package ready for implementation in the participant’s own setting.

Use this section of the website to learn about each of the programs we offer. You can then contact us to see about setting up a program for your own organization or in your own community or region. Programs can usually be tailored for particular needs or populations.

We also have a series of online courses at our PsychologySalon education site. For previews and more information on our online courses, click here.
