Psychologist steps aside from teaching as practice placed under supervision

January 15, 2018

Stephen Porter, a University of British Columbia professor, has been reprimanded by the College of Psychologists of British Columbia and has stepped aside from his teaching duties.

In an online notice posted on Dec. 29, the college said Porter had consented to having his practice put under regulatory supervision for 18 months, with a “particular focus” on boundary issues, sexual harassment and power differentials.  The notice also said he would provide letters of apology to an undisclosed number of complainants.

In a statement, the university said Porter has agreed to step aside from his teaching duties, although he will continue to be engaged in other academic responsibilities.
