Educational Psychology Services involvement in delivering therapeutic interventions: sharing the practicalities

Friday 8th February 2019 at BPS Offices, London, Tabernacle Street

This day conference was for Educational Psychologists (EPs) and Educational Psychology Services (EPSs) to share good practice in delivering therapeutic interventions. It was a joint event planned together with NAPEP.

EPSs from a range of settings (Devon, Bristol, Enfield & Blackburn and Darwin) presented their experiences, including their approaches to commissioning, the practicalities of delivery and their evaluation findings. The recently produced DECP Commissioning and revised Ethical Trading documents was available, as well as the DECP Delivering Psychological Therapies in Schools and Communities.
