General Comments

The Australian Psychological Society advise that APS Members may accrue Continuing Professional Development (CPD) hours by participating in activities that they determine to be relevant to their specific professional approaches. CPD activities do no need to be endorsed by the APS.

Courses in bereavement counselling are best not undertaken by people who have experienced the death of someone close to them in the previous twelve months. The courses are skills focused and do not provide therapy.

All courses are from 9.30am to 4.30pm unless stated otherwise. Doors will open 30 minutes before commencement of course. It is important that participants attend all sessions so that group dynamics are not disrupted by absences.

Light lunch, morning and afternoon tea provided. Special diets not catered for.
