Practitioner CPD

Professional Development Training for your most important assets

Many practiitoners have a requirement to engage in a minimum number of CPD hours every year. This is great for their growth and the skills they bring to thier workplaces, but it can be costly and time consuming, which is a burden on an already overworked and underpaid sector. 

 

Good Psychology aims to bring the training to the workplace, making it affordable and accessible for practitioners and their employers. Our group programs deliver the best and the latest in skills, knowledge and competencies. Whatever your needs we can find a qualified and experienced expert practitioner and educator to deliver it in the way you need.

 

Below you will find a range of programs designed to meet the common needs of our sectors, but feel free to contact us for custom requirements.

Workforce Health and Wellbeing

Turnover is typically high in therapeutic workforces. The pressure of huge workloads, unrealistic expectations, underfunding and lack of resources often combine with the everyday stress of working with distressed and traumatised clients to create burnout and vicarious trauma in therapists. Our programs give you and your workforce the skills to manage these realities and stay engaged and stay well.
