A misguided but charming socialist gets more than he bargained for when he sets out to gather an army of revolutionaries…from a ladies’ college. 

The best-kept secret of British comedy, SMASH is the ultimate faceoff between Men and Women, Labour and Capital, Love and Idiocy. Crackling with political satire and romantic foibles, this deliciously clever laugh-riot is proof that even socialists can be funny!

Tues – Sat 7:30 pm with Sat matinees 2:00 pm, Freedom Hall, RNT, TWU

MA Counselling Psychology Research and Clinical Colloquium

Fred Chou, "Enhanced CIT"

We will welcome submissions from all areas of Counselling Psychology - career counselling and development, health and wellness, counselling process and multicultural counselling (to name just a few). We invite members of the CPSY community to present their empirical work, clinical cases and developments, and theoretical presentations. Three different presentation formats are possible: Papers, Posters or Symposia.

There is no cost to attend, but pre-registration is mandatory. Pre-register for the entire day, or just the morning or afternoon session. invite@eventbrite.com

Morning session - 9:00am-12noon

A workshop on Critical Incident Technique (CIT) with Fred Chou, M.A., Ph.D. student (UBC). CIT is a practical and helpful research tool that can be used for evaluation and joint inquiry.  It is an approach for examining what helps and hinders a particular phenomenon, such as interventions, practices, and programs. This workshop will help students and community members understand the basics of CIT as well as its recent developments--the Enhanced Critical Incident Technique (ECIT) and Participatory Critical Incident Technique (PaCIT). Fred has published a paper on the development and use of PaCIT in the Canadian Journal of Counselling and Psychotherapy.  He is currently a 3rd year doctoral candidate at UBC, and has also written articles about research and collaborative practice for the Institute of Families.

This portion of the day is co-sponsored by the Ministry of Child and Family Development.

Afternoon session - 1:00-4:30pm

The primary purpose of this event is to offer MA-CPSY faculty, students and alumni an opportunity to showcase their empirical, theoretical and clinical work through a variety of clinical and research presentations. We are therefore issuing a call to all MA-CPSY faculty, alumni and students to consider presenting their work during this one day event.
