Description


Overcoming Professional and Clinical Impasses:

Access to Multi-modal Practice/Supervision groups



This free one-day event is being run by senior psychologists linked with the West Midlands Division of Clinical Psychology to facilitate effective sharing and learning for ALL qualified Clinical Psychologists working in all areas, in a professional confidential environment. We would particularly like to draw this event to the attention of all colleagues including new and recently qualified colleagues as this is one way that the local DCP committee supports you.

Throughout the day, facilitated workshops (see overleaf) will provide the opportunity for helpful peer support, drawing on different theoretical models, to bring different levels of experience to those cases where individuals may feel the need for new thinking and new ideas.

The aim is to provide an opportunity to ask the "obvious" questions without worrying about appearing “silly”, and to free up your thinking from a new perspective. It is also intended to be a way of finding about different models and theories from an experiential position of peer supervision with real cases.

The event is FREE for ALL qualified Clinical Psychologists who work within the West Midlands (you do not have to be a member of the DCP).Unfortunately we are unable to offer places to Clinical Psychologists who are not already qualified, nor to other psychologists or psychotherapists, due to restrictions arising from the source of funding for this event. Attendees will need to bring a current form of photo identification so we can cross ref your registration against the HCPC website.
