BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CRPO AND OSRP?

  • CRPO (the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario) is a regulatory body that focuses on protecting the public
  • OSRP is your association; we focus on protecting your interests

The Ontario Society of Registered Psychotherapists has so much to offer its members beyond the traditional concepts of a professional association. We do advocate for our members and set a high standard that builds trust with existing and potential clients, and we do so much more. The Society is a community that supports registered psychotherapists through opportunities and events that promote learning and research.

LIABILITY INSURANCE

We connect you to affordable liability insurance

Insurance through CRPO is approximately $275. OSRP members can get their professional liability insurance for $215. Plus, our policy provides broader coverage that OSRP negotiates on your behalf on a regular basis.

CONNECTION

Meet and connect with other therapists! Your community of peers: for RPs, by RPs

Many Registered Psychotherapists work as individual practitioners. Having a community of RPs allows for the sharing of ideas and creates an environment of mutual support. We act to strengthen and unify the psychotherapy profession.

ADVOCACY & RESEARCH

We are your professional voice on issues that affect your practice.

OSRP represents the interests of psychotherapists with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario and with the government. We provide support through the complaints process and help to create awareness of psychotherapy and its benefits with the general public. We also play an important role in furthering psychotherapy research.

SUPPORT

We are the professional home for your protection and professional development.

If a complaint has been made against you, please contact us as soon as possible so we may offer you support through this process. A complaint does not jeopardize your membership at the OSRP, nor your insurance if it is through McFarlan Rowlands on the OSRP's professional liability insurance program.
