2 PACFA PD opportunities in Brisbane

November 13, 2015 @ 3:15 pm - 8:00 pm

The PACFA Research Committee is pleased to announce two upcoming professional
development opportunities……

 

1.   Mental illness is a family matter

Mental illness does not impact solely on the individual.  When a parent has a mental illness,
the family environment can be affected and the risk for children acquiring mental health
problems is increased.  This presentation provides a snapshot of interventions available to
different family members and the challenges faced in delivering and evaluating these
programs.  The Let’s Talk about Children initiative will be showcased as a vehicle for
supporting parents and children, within an implementation and research framework.

When:   3.15 – 5.15pm Friday 13 November 2015

Where:   Australian College of Applied Psychology, Room G.28 (Ground Floor) 410 Ann Street Brisbane City (opposite St John’s Cathedral)

Who:   Associate Professor Andrea Rupert & Dr Nicky Jacobs, Monash University

How much:   ACAP students / QCA members – NO COST; All others – $40.00

Registration:   No registration required (pay at the door)

2.   Research Forum – Supportive Counselling

In this forum counselling and psychotherapy researchers will present on the research evidence base for the effectiveness of Supportive Counselling (including PCT, EFT and other humanistic therapies).  The forum will include an overview of the findings of PACFA’s recent literature review of these modalities, opportunities for interactive discussion with panel members, and a question & answer session.
