About this Event

We believe it is timely to look at the developing landscape for CBT on the whole island, which includes Statutory Regulations & a Registration Board for Psychotherapists in the South, Service Developments in the North and perhaps even the fallout of Brexit. We hope to explore some of the key issues that will impact on training, accreditation, and therapists in the years ahead.
