PSHK AGM SPECIAL GUEST – LIVE ONLINE PRESENTATION. While CBT enjoys strong empirical support across a large range of psychopathology, a significant proportion of patients show poor treatment response. In many cases, this may occur due to patient characteristics/traits which make them poor candidates for standard CBT protocols. Recent research has confirmed the status of Schema Therapy as an evidence-based treatment for personality disorders using ‘extended schema mode conceptualisations’.

The Impact of Prenatal Alcohol Exposure on Children

This talk focuses on the impact of Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) on children and their families.
