Psychology: Applied Performance Practitioner

This course will help support you as a psychology practitioner by sharing the essential elements of effective practice punctuated with practical examples that you won’t learn from a textbook. 

The programme will help you overcome common issues for the practicing psychologist such as being expected to know everything about humans and behaviour, expected to ‘sort problems’ overnight. You will learn critical professional skills, frameworks and approaches such as case formulation, developing your philosophy and working with ethical dilemmas. All with the aim of adding clarity, enabling you to work with confidence and create impact for your clients.
