Who Can Register?

ASPM is proud to be able to launch another virtual Focused Psychological Strategies Skill Training 'Level 2' series in March 2021.

The training will be delivered online over 14 hours, with 6 hours of online follow-up through case consultations with our skilled facilitators or online content completed at your own pace. The 14 hours of workshop sessions will be conducted online across Saturday afternoons in March 2021. Numbers are capped to ensure good quality small group discussion and practical learning – so register as soon as you can. Your registration enables us to continue to offer high quality training ‘for GPs by GPs’, and to build the strength of our organisation to serve GPs who highly value whole person care and Generalist Mental Health clinical skills training. 

Participants will be eligible for 80-120 CPD points, depending on the pathway chosen to complete the training. Each module in our training will introduce foundational information and skills, and (perhaps more importantly) provide you with links to resources for further development and psycho-education for patients in any of the domains that interest you.

A wide variety of resources and self-help activities are provided, all of which are high quality, online and free to access; most of these come from the rich suite of resources produced by Universities and other Mental Health Research and Advocacy organisations in Australia. In addition a comprehensive reading list is provided for those who wish to develop greater depth in particular areas of interest.

The training is highly interactive and very practical. It is suitable for all GPs with an interest in Mental Health from Registrars to the very experienced, and many of the skills are also transferable to other areas of General Practice. We encourage contributions from and interaction between our participants, and we always learn from attendees at each workshop. Our trainers are GPs and ASPM is dedicated to supporting our GP colleagues in this way.
