The information in this one day course is a condensed opportunity to develop knowledge and skills in internal control psychology. The concepts presented in this course are those of Choice Theory® psychology which is an explanation of how the brain functions to integrate information.

The aim of presenting a one day course is to encourage people to participate in CPD training in internal control psychology. Participants of this course can then go onto participate in the Basic Intensive Training with a one day credit. It is hoped that this creates a more flexible option for people for training as it can be hard to book in for 4 day courses.
