October has been an eventful month for my team. We have met up with three tertiary Psychology clubs, namely the Murdoch Psychology Society Singapore (MPSS), NUS Psychology Society, and SIM Psychology Society (SIM PsySoc) to provide outreach into the community, raising the awareness that mental health is just as important as physical health. In addition, we are also working with the Singapore Psychology Society’s Aspiring Professional Special Interests Group (SIG) to see how we could collaborate to bring quality programmes to students and members of the public.
This year, we will be having our first major course – The Graduate Certificate in Psychotherapeutic Approaches (Cognitive Behavioural Therapy). CBT provides a good solid psychotherapy foundation for Psychology Graduates (people with a bachelor degree in Psychology) to start practicing clinical with their clients. Armed with CBT, graduates may proceed to further their psychotherapy expertise in the area of ACT, DBT, and / or MCBT.
We are planning for more ACA On-going Professional Development (OPD) accredited workshops (e.g. Group Psychotherapy) in 2019 to cater to the needs of students and members of the public.
Ending off, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all of you a great November!
