Short 20 – 30 minute online professional development

Professionals are often well equipped to learn theory, and many have completed studies that require high level theoretical understanding,. Many however, find the translation of theory into practice in the therapeutic setting to be their greatest challenge. Often the most confident articulate worker finds themselves at a loss when confronted with the real life complexity of individuals, couples and families.

How do you make a connection with anyone from a baby to a centenarian? How do you formulate a working hypothesis? How do you ask a relevant question? How do you maintain order and direction in a session without becoming constrictive? All these questions and more made us realise that it was time to run the “How do I?” series.

The series comprise weekly on-line presentations that specifically address these practical skill questions. Each is for 20 minutes and includes an introduction to the question, a brief theoretical underpinning and practical advice, explanation and demonstration of the skill.

Attendees can log on to experience the session in real time and send questions to be addressed by the presenter during the 10 minute response session. The series will also be available as a recording which can be purchased to be viewed over 24hours. For those wishing to claim CPD reading and a post session quiz can be provided.

Cost $10 per session.
