The Psychology Association of Saskatchewan (PAS) is very aware of the wide-reaching impact COVID-19 is having on the people of our province. In this time of uncertainty, existing mental health concerns may worsen or new ones may arise. To provide assistance to those looking to garner mental health support we have compiled a list of our members who are willing and able to provide virtual care. Please see Public Resources. This list will be updated over time.

Recommended Fee: $200 per hour

The above fee recommendation derived by the Psychological Association of Saskatchewan represents a general guideline to assist individual psychologists in determining fee rates for services. The fee recommendation is also made available for reference to users of psychological services such as individual clients and insurers. Each practitioner sets their own fees, incorporating this fee guideline into their particular circumstance. It is expected fees will be adjusted based upon the specific credentials of the psychologist and nature of services being offered (e.g., legal and consultation services may garner a higher hourly rate).

This fee recommendation came into effect on January 2022. It is the intention of the PAS to review the fee on an annual basis.

CRSI is excited to present our  2023 Spring Conference at  TCU Place in Saskatoon: 

“THE SCARF MODEL:  Conflict Formation and  Resolution” 


Samantha Karlin of the NeuroLeadership Institute 

June 8, 2023 

9:00 am – 4:30 pm 

Registration for In-Person: 8:30 am June 9, 2023 

8:00 – 9:00 am Breakfast & Registration 

Conference: 9:00 a.m. to  12:00 Noon {Central/SK time} 

Samantha will be presenting the  SCARF Model a framework of basic  human social needs and their role in conflict formation and resolution. 

David Rock and the NeuroLeadership Institute have developed, since 2009, a  brain-based model of basic human social  needs. The far-reaching implications and  benefits of this model continue to accrue  with further research and practice.  Conflict Resolution Saskatchewan Inc.  offers a unique opportunity to explore the  model in the Saskatchewan context with a  full day of Samantha Karlin of the  NeuroLeadership Institute on June 8  followed by a facilitated morning with  Sherry Van Hesteren on June 9, including  a panel of professionals who incorporate  the SCARF model into their daily work.  Sherry will moderate the panel discussion and then lead an engaging and interactive  discussion, applying and finding the  relevance of the model for participants. 

We’ve all heard of Maslow’s hierarchy of  basic human needs - but what about  psychological needs? Join the  

Neuroleadership Institute for an interactive  day of training on the SCARF model- our  copyrighted model of psychological needs.  We are going to take a deep dive into the  neuroscience of emotions. Participants will  learn emotional regulation strategies, how  to re-interpret triggers, and discuss tactics to  defuse the flames of heated moments in  order to prevent and de-escalate conflict.
