This year in the afternoon we will organize:

The workshop will be led by a member of the EAC who will explain the procedure of installing a National Awarding Committee and reply to practical questions.

Workshop 2: Experiences of NACs in dealing with CPD requirements:

  • what activities are recognised as CPD
  • how many hours are required from psychologists seeking certificate renewal
  • collecting information (via online systems or paper)
  • gathering information (every year, 3-year, 5-year or 7-year cycle)
  • do professional bodies centralise this information about their members independent of the EuroPsy and if so how?

Important: This meeting is organised for the chairs of the NACs and SNACs and deals with technical and organisational matters of EuroPsy.

However, if a member association is preparing to set up a EuroPsy NAC or S_NAC Psychotherapy or S_NAC Work and Organisational Psychology, they are most welcome and should also attend the workshop  ‘EuroPsy for beginners ‘How to install a NAC – step by step’ in the afternoon.
