2020 PLP Summit  - POSTPONED

We have decided to postpone the PLP Summit 2020. We are guided by university, provincial and federal guidelines regarding COVID 19 in the protection of your health, as well as protecting the health care profession’s ability to serve Albertans during this health crisis.

If you submitted an abstract, we encourage you to keep any materials you have developed, as our hope is to reschedule the summit at a future date.

If you already registered, full refunds will be made to registrants and will be processed by the Registration Specialist. Refund processing will likely take up to 7 business days. Should you have any questions, kindly contact  


Cognitive Coaching

This 8 day workshop (offered in two 4 day parts) focuses on skill development.

Participants will refine and enhance their abilities in mediating others' thinking by building rapport, posing questions, and providing structure in conversations. Extensive practice in the seminars will train practitioners in becoming a “sounding board” for patients, encouraging the use of the patient’s internal resourcefulness. By tapping into beliefs, values, and goals of the individual, practitioners will learn to support the self-directedness of their patient in a positive way. At the end of the two-part seminars, participants will learn to guide others through problem-solving, rather than telling someone what to do.
