Please note, this event has been postponed.

Thursday 11th December 2014 at Refectory Building, Stranmillis College

Often Clinical and Educational Psychology work alongside each other, this workshop wishes to explore and promote the value of working together. The workshop will offer professionals an opportunity to reflect on their current biases about professional groups, information about an effective model of working together and a space to plan and problem solve different ways of working in the future. We will consider the similarities and differences in our roles and responsibilities and how we all work together as Applied Psychologists for children, young people and their families. The facilitators both work for the Family Advice & Support Service in Kingston, South West London. FASS is co-managed by the Principal Educational Psychologist and a Clinical Psychologist and co-located with the Educational Psychology Service. This unique management and service design has provided opportunities and challenges for managing the relationship between Clinical and Educational Psychologists.


The workshop will provide members from both Clinical and Educational backgrounds with CPD time together, this opportunity for shared time together will provide an opportunity for thinking together which can often be overlooked in the workplace.
