Date Event Location
22 & 23 April 2020 Focused Psychological Strategies for Social Workers

14 CPD hours

**FPS Relevant Activity**

**Can count towards AASW Mental Health Accreditation CPD requirements**

The Focused Psychological Strategies workshop offers a comprehensive and accessible exploration of the broad and eclectic strategies contained in the Medicare protocol. Beginning with a brief historical overview of mental health interventions, we then investigate the theoretical underpinnings, diagnostic categories and treatment strategies of the four main therapeutic modalities: psychological (cognitive behavioural therapy and neuroscience), psychotherapeutic (the unconscious mind and ‘therapeutic relationship’), systemic (family and narrative) and holistic (mindfulness and mind/body). This two day workshop includes a colourful slide presentation, individual experiential exercises, pair-work and group discussions; and the opportunity to develop and consolidate your therapeutic skills and knowledge.
