Because these administrative organisations have quasi-legal and/or regulatory powers they can begin to shape professional practice criteria along ideological lines and, also, remove a therapist’s licence to practise.

The College of Psychologists of Ontario, which oversees practising psychologists in order to protect patients from professional misconduct, has taken exception to some of Peterson’s public statements. It has ordered him to complete a mandatory social media re-education program. He is required to “review, reflect on and ameliorate [his] professionalism in public statements. Peterson has fought back by submittting a request for a judicial review. This is an important test case for the therapy professions. See full article here.
