Mental Health – Clinical Practice


other currencies available

Having a specialist understanding of how and why members of GSRD populations are at greater risk of mental health disorders is vital if you’re a Counsellor, Therapist or Mental Health Professional who reaches out to diverse client groups. You’ll also be keen to develop your understanding of the predominant models that inform therapeutic practice when mental health is a presenting issue.

Pink Therapy’s Mental Health Clinical Practice online-learning CPD module offers valuable insight into the area of mental health within the GSRD context. The module will develop your professional understanding of treatment planning and interventions for these clients so that you feel equipped to explore the complexities of each case with sensitivity and confidence.

If you select ‘Self study materials only’ you will receive the information for personal learning but won’t need to submit an assignment. If you select ‘Submit an assignment for Certificate Of Study’ you will submit an assignment that will be marked by one of our Faculty. If you pass the assignment, you’ll be issued with a Certificate Of Study from Pink Therapy for 15 hours of online learning. If you don’t pass, you will be given an opportunity to resubmit.
