All training workshops utilize a lecture-demonstration-practices format. Professionals will spend the majority of time in direct experiences, deriving extensive familiarity with various techniques. Hence the training is a stimulating blend of theoretical, vicarious and experiential learning.

Workshop fees for South African participantsR1000.00 per day , unless otherwise specified on the training programme. 5 Hour workshops: R800.00.

Eligibility: Open to clinical, educational, industrial and counselling psychologists registered with the Health Professions Council of South Africa. Other professionals registered with the HPCSA may attend provided that the training falls within their scope of practice.

Disclaimer: Please note that the attainment of continuing education units (CEU's) does not license any professional to practice outside their official scope of practice, nor does it allow them to execute any psychological act or do psychotherapy should they not be qualified or accredited by their respective professional board to do so.

CEU's are intended to broaden the knowledge of professionals but do not constitute professional training.
