ISSP-R Application Announcement Amended

ISSP is pleased to announce that applications to the ISSP-Registry (ISSP-R) and ISSP-Registry of Approved Supervisors (ISSP-S) will be re-opening. Applications will open on Friday, January 21, 2022. Please refer to the ISSP-R section of the website for full details; however below is some of the key information

There are two routes to being accepted onto the ISSP-R – the Established Practitioner route and the Emerging Practitioner route. Presently, we are accepting applications for both the Established Practitioner and Emerging Practitioner routes. For the ISSP-S, we are currently accepting applications from Established Supervisors. The deadline for submission of applications will be Tuesday March 1, 2022.

The Established Practitioner/Supervisor route to the ISSP-R and ISSP-S is for those well-established practitioners (i.e., greater than 8 years of consulting/supervisory experience post-MSc degree qualification) to apply to the Registry in recognition of their long-standing work in the field. This route will be time-limited, but it is important to encourage our more senior colleagues to become part of the ISSP-R and ISSP-S, continuing to serve as role models for the profession. The Emerging Practitioner route to ISSP-R is for early-career practitioners looking to demonstrate their competence in the field. In addition to the minimum academic (i.e., BSc/BA, MSc) and experiential requirements, applicants will be required to engage in three short ISSP-specific modules focused on cultural competence, ethics, and mental health.

On the website, applicants will find several documents that will be helpful in understanding the criteria and process, as well as two sets of example applications. This information can be found on the ISSP-R section of the website. Please read through the criteria to judge whether you feel an application as an Established Practitioner or as an Emerging Practitioner is the right route for you.
