PVR training comes to Canada
The Center for Psychiatric Rehabilitation (Boston University) is now offering a Canadian version of the Certificate Program in Psychiatric Vocational Rehabilitation (PVR-Canada). The goal of PVR is to support individuals to choose, get and keep the employment and educational roles and settings of their choice. The PVR-Canada program is designed to enhance the skills and knowledge of employment and vocational practitioners in their work with people with psychiatric disabilities. The first PVR-Canada class will be delivered between May 2011 and April 2012, consisting of three training institutes (one week each) taking place in Toronto, with the rest of the program completed in the student’s home agency. (Organizers are currently exploring connecting to the training institutes with videoconferencing for students unable to travel to Toronto.) Application deadline for the 2011 class is March 15, 2011.
