Dear Colleagues:

Do you supervise counsellors and psychologists-in-training? If so, do you ask them for feedback about your own supervision? If you do, then this study is for you. If you're interested in participating, please let me know. All interested supervisors will, first, complete a short, 4-item measure of supervision practice and, second, a 30-minute phone interview. This particular study will involve 10-12 registered psychologists who supervise students, interns/residents, and provisionally licensed psychologists.

Your identifying information will be kept confidential. If you are interested in participating and/or have questions, please contact me at for further details.

I greatly appreciate your help and look forward to hearing from you!

Dear Colleague,


I am recruiting Registered Psychologists in the Alberta area to participate in a brief phone interview regarding their experiences conducting suicide risk assessments. If you are a Registered Psychologist who works in the Alberta area who regularly conducts suicide risk assessments, I would be interested in having a one-on-one phone interview with you to gain an understanding of your experience. I believe your experience can help us understand the factors that ameliorate and interfere with the ethical practice of suicide risk assessments.


The phone interview will last 25-30 minutes. Your identifying information (e.g., name, age) will be kept confidential. If you are interested in participating and/or have questions, please contact me ( for further details.


I greatly appreciate your assistance, and look forward to hearing from you!
