New Autumn 22 series Announced: Free Online CPD for Welldoing Members
Welldoing members can access free certificated online CPD at our Wednesday Lunch and Learn sessions. Expert therapists and authors are interviewed for the first 30 minutes, then attendees can join the Q and A for the second half of the session. All sessions start at 12:30 and run to 1:30. Pre-booking is essential.
The Zoom sessions have been very popular with our members:
“We are able to talk freely and share our thoughts and feelings about so many important and interesting subjects.”
“I benefit greatly from being connected to a larger and bigger force through Welldoing. I am so grateful for these gatherings, thank you Welldoing.”
“Lunch and Learn is a brilliant initiative - very well managed between speakers and questions and really thought-provoking. It’s a focused, bite-size piece of learning that that easily fits into the day.”
How to book
To attend any upcoming events, you must be a Welldoing member, either a therapist or coach. All the details about joining can be found here.
Members can email [email protected] with the date of the session in the subject line. You will be sent a Zoom link to the event on the morning of the session.
