PRESENTATIONS FOR PROFESSIONALS

Stacks Image 1485
I provide a variety of training programs on mental health topics for mental health professionals. Programs have been presented in almost every province and territory in Canada, as well as in Australia, New Zealand, and Hong Kong.

The goal in these programs is to provide quality content in an entertaining and engaging format. Many programs come with an extensive resource package ready for implementation in the participant’s own setting.

Use this section of the website to learn about each of the programs we offer. You can also contact me to see about setting up a program for your own organization or in your own community or region. All presentations are prepared or adjusted to suit the needs of the participants.

Most programs are sponsored by outside hosts: Agencies, health regions, corporations, CE suppliers, or professional bodies. Click here to learn more about hosting.

Changeways Clinic is approved by the Canadian Psychological Association to offer continuing education for psychologists - both in-person presentations and our online courses for clinicians. Changeways Clinic maintains responsibility for these programs.

I also have a series of online courses at the PsychologySalon education site. For previews and more information on our online courses, click here.
