Active, interactive CPD

Written by experienced trainers, we know that you don't learn well just watching pre-recorded webinars.  This module is truly interactive with a constantly changing combination of videos, readings and activities to keep you engaged and encourage deep learning.

A deeper understanding

This module prompts reflection on the evaluation of psychological interventions, focusing on papers by Scott Lilienfeld and subsequent researchers. Lilienfeld highlighted interventions with potential harm in 2007, and a posthumous paper in 2020 refined this list using advanced meta-analysis techniques. The module also goes deep into the challenge of evaluating emerging therapies and offers red flags to maintain scientific standards.
