SWDT EVENTS IN 2018

To view the next event see our Biannual
The SWDT programme is constantly being updated and the
following courses are proposed for 2018
- Retired Doctors event
- 23 March: Supervision Course
- 6 June: Developmental Disorders
- 24 September: Retired Doctors event
- 11 October: Communication Skills for Psychosis
- 26 October: Medico-legal Course
- This day is an interesting opportunity for the retired (still
working or not) and resting psychiatrist to hear about the current
state of the world of psychiatry. There will be plenty of time for
interaction and discussion and we hope that this day will be both
entertaining and educative,
giving benefit of valuable clinical CPD points, and the pleasure of
social interaction with old and new friends. As always we have
reserved some time to discuss the current situation regarding
revalidation for the “orphaned” psychiatrist. More information and
booking options to come.
23 March 2018 - Supervision: beyond the ticked
- Aimed at Senior Clinicians who give regular supervision
and would like an opportunity to reflect on their practice with
peers, particularly those who have already come across some of the
challenges it creates. It is also open to ST6 doctors who are
not yet regular supervisors. Attendees will gain a deeper
theoretical understanding of supervision and learn new
practical approaches to try. For those who have already completed
the initial induction for educational supervisors provided by the
Severn/Peninsula, this course can count as on going educational
training for 2 years and counts for 6 CPD hours.
For information on any of the above courses please
contact the Division office.
We are continually improving our programme to better meet your
needs, so please do let us know if there are any subjects you would
like to be included in the future.
