"Training the Trainers": Are you teaching on a UK Health Psychology Course?
Do you want to include more practitioner skills into your training? Do you want to develop your own understanding of Practitioner Skills? Would you like to develop the way that you teach and assess interventions skills within your Stage 1 (MSc) and/or Stage 2 Training?
Our two training days (consecutively) are designed for academic lecturing staff teaching on UK Health Psychology training courses who may have little direct experience of applied practice and are wanting to experience how to teach Psychological Interventions/Behaviour Change knowledge and skills. Our courses provide an understanding of how to deliver health psychology practitioner (individual) interventions and effectively train and assess trainees' interventions skills without having to become an expert practitioner.
Only staff teaching on training courses are accepted onto this course so that the focus of the course can be directed to "training the trainers" - giving those staff additional skills in practitioner training.
