Psychotherapy now a regulated profession

On April 1, 2015, the Psychotherapy Act, 2007 came into effect and the College of Registered Psychotherapists and Registered Mental Health Therapists of Ontario (CRPO) was created.

Nurses can no longer use the title “psychotherapist” because the new Act restricts its use to CRPO members. There are no other changes that affect nursing practice at this time because the controlled act of psychotherapy is not yet proclaimed.
