Workshop Proposal

2020 BCSCA Provincial Conference

Due to the ever-changing circumstances of COVID 19 and the safety of our entire conference the BC School Counsellors Associations’ (BCSCA) 2020 Conference will be held virtually.  We are most excited to have learned from other conferences that have successfully transitioned into a virtual conference so we are following suit.   

Please ignore the April 2020 deadline.   We are accepting proposals now June 2020 until further notice. 

Please let us know if you are willing to present your workshop virtually.  If you are unsure of how that could happen please let us know and we can help you brainstorm ways to make it successful.  The conference I attended even had a basketball workshop which was successful.  Delegates and organizers have reported many benefits to having a virtual conference such as:  


  • Delegates can attend in their jammies
  • Parking is not an issue
  • Presenters don’t have to travel
  • Presenters can present from their own home
  • Everyone gets their choice of food and drink
  • Everyone has their own bathroom
  • Everyone has a front-row seat
  • No one has to worry about a chatty colleague next to them
  • More spots per workshop
  • Much better chairs
  • Much better eco-footprint

The BC School Counsellors Association (BCSCA) 2020 Conference welcomes you to submit an abstract for presenting at our conference on OCTOBER 23, 2020. The 2020 conference theme is The Mind and Body Connection.


The 2020 Conference committee is looking for presenters who will provide information to our delegates related to the Mind and Body connection.  


* We know there is top quality work happening around the province. We want to provide you with a wider audience for your skills and expertise.  

 * A hallmark of our conference is the top quality workshops    

* We want to include YOU  

We would love to have you join us at our conference presenting to our colleagues in the following topics:


  • using the mind to change the body
  • using the body to change the mind
  • the strong connection between mind and body
  • how trauma is stored in the body
  • how to treat trauma through the body
  • what we are learning from the pandemic
  • other topics that may interest delegates
With each conference, we strive to bring together school counsellors, administrators, and community health professionals to share information about therapeutic techniques, skills, programs, practices, and policies related to school counselling at all levels. Our goal is to provide a conference that meets participants' interests and educational needs and also promotes community partnerships that will ultimately benefit counsellors, students, families, and communities. 


GENERAL INFORMATION: Complimentary registration is provided for each presenter on their presentation day.
