Psychotherapy.co.za will be launching a range of well priced, professionally written and designed online CPD activities in March 2010. These CPD activities will be worth between 2 and five CPD points each and will involve reading professional quality articles, answering questions and contributing to an online discussion.

The short courses will be offered at between R100 and R200 each or approxiamately R35 per CPD point.

The course content will draw on peer reviewed journals.

Are you interested in an offering like this?

Please feel free to request a course or an area of interest that you would like to see covered in the courses.

I will be very interested in such an offering. Please include ethics, playtherapy, couples therapy, psychometric testing for recruitment purposes.

Looking forward to it!

Great Idea!

A lot of students ask me about report writing skills.  Might be a good idea to run one of those.  I will be holding a workshop in November, but it won't be CPD accredited, just educational.

I think its a fantastic idea! As a recently registered
psychometrist, I would be interested in the following:
psychometric testing, ethical conduct, personality and
mood assessments.

I presently get Cpd points through ECPDSA which offers online activities for all medical and other heallth workers. Given the almost ubiquitous medical hegemony, I have found most of the psychology articles dutifully tow the line of CBT and SSRI's. Having made this criticism, I was asked to apply to become a sectional editor offering articles and questions based on freely published peer reviewed articles on the internet. I chose to begin introducing spiritual issues, psychoanalytic psychology and addictionology. The payment for one's work is minimal. On the other hand I found the convenience of doing my CPD online very appealing and cost effective. Possicly the owner of this site should have a look at how eCPDSA is set up, if David has not already done so, to avoid some of its limitations and ensure that this site offers material that is exciting and challenging rather than providing merely perfunctory evidence of wading through paper offering little new . Until now,eCPDSA seemed to be the only site recognised by the HPCSA for CPD online purposes. A question that has always perturbed me is the high costs and administrative nightmare involved to have one's proposed CPD courses evaluated for recognition by the HPCSA as a service provider. Why are so very few psychologists actually accredited? Another is the quality of courses available. Has it become a money making scam for most? I therfore look forward to psychotherapy.co.za's initiative in this area. Again, from a personal perspective,I hope we will find sufficient interest among membersto justify articles elaborating and applying Wilfred Bion's work, and explorations of, for e.g. the sophisticated Hindo Vedic concepts of mind/body and nature, which have enormously powerful clinical relevance to our daily work and current social concerns, rather than being arcane indulgences in 'other worldly' escapism. Thank you and congatulations for making this method of attaining CPD's more accessible

Susan mentioned report writing - that's a course that I would like to do as well - CPD or not. We did not really cover report writing in our internship (RC) although we were supposed to - we covered  assessments & interpretation but no official report writing.

Would love some courses for CPD - currently getting mine through CDPWell (internet through Stellenbosch Univ) but it's rather costly and very wide so only rarely touches on anything that I'm interested in.
