Mental Health – Research Focus


other currencies available

If you’re a Counsellor or Therapist working with a diverse client group, understanding how the outcomes of modern research on mental health disorders has shaped professional thinking about mental health in GSRD populations is an important aspect of your knowledge base.

Pink Therapy’s Mental Health Research online-learning CPD module encourages you to develop the ability to think critically about the results, methodologies and limitations of the available research so that you can form a balanced overview of the nature and prevalence of mental health disorders in GSRD populations and avoid making assumptions or adopting unhelpful, non-therapeutic behaviours towards your clients.

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.
