Read Time:2 Minute, 37 Second

This webinar will outline the findings from the recently published evidence-based BPS guidance on working psychologically with individuals with Parkinson’s.

Firstly the psychological difficulties faced by people with Parkinson’s will be outlined and then we set out the evidence for what current psychological approaches work. The challenges of providing therapy in the absence of evidence for specific difficulties will also be discussed as will the challenges of access to services.

The first part of the session will be used for information giving but time will also be set aside for discussion (and debate!) and for those with other experiences to share their clinical expertise.

 

Please note, this webinar will not be recorded. To avoid disappointment please only book a place if you are able to attend the live webinar.
