Forthcoming Events and Training at the Tavistock Clinic

There may be events here of interest which I have received via their mailing list and reproduce here with their permission!

The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust is the UK's leading multi-professional mental health training organisation.

Its approach is based on a model for clinical work, teaching and learning which underlines the importance of establishing and understanding relationships in effective work, employs a developmental model of understanding the human mind and human behaviour and underlines the effectiveness of the psychological therapies.
The Tavistock and Portman Clinics run a range of conferences and a wide variety of continuing professional development courses every year. Details are on our website along with our postgraduate validated 1, 2, 3 and 4 year programmes, including our professional trainings in the psychotherapies.
