How has the pandemic changed your practice?

The CYCAA Board of Directors have been inspired by this broadcast and have come up with an idea to ask Child and Youth Care Counsellors to tell us how your professional practice has changed during this pandemic. We invite you to participate in either digital storytelling, like what has been done in the broadcast (linked below) or through a written word reflective journal. We are wondering:


  1. How has the child and youth care practice changed because of Covid-19?
  2. How has Covid-19 impacted you as a professional?
  3. What are your experiences that you would like to share?
  4. Anything else you would like to share about Covid-19 and child and youth care or child and youth care professionals.
We would like to put something together to share about the essential work of CYCCs and the impact of the pandemic for the purpose of advocacy, public knowledge, and collecting/documenting what is happening now in the world as it pertains to our profession.

For inspiration watch the broadcast linked below.
