How a webinar works:

  • Ensure that you have access to a device with a stable internet connection, screen and speakers (e.g. computer, laptop or smart phone). A mic is also recommended, to aid in asking questions. A headset is ideal.
  • Once you have added the webinar to your cart, checked out and paid via PayFast, you will automatically be enrolled into the corresponding course on your Online Learning Space.
  • You will receive an automated invoice and payment confirmation via e-mail (check your spam/junk folder if you don’t see this in your inbox).
  • You will receive an instruction booklet and programme before the webinar, detailing steps on how to join the session, presentation slots and break times, so you can plan just when to make your cup of coffee.
  • On the day of the webinar, log into your Online Learning Space using the username and password you chose when you first purchased training on our website (you can click here to log in). Make sure you have these credentials saved. We recommend testing your log-in before the time and contacting us if you need assistance, so that you don’t find yourself locked out on the day. If you need assistance on the day, please phone (012) 664 0222 x108, asking for Nicolene. You will then be assisted remotely.
  • Select the webinar name from the drop-down menu called “My Courses” and you will then see the course page load.
  • Click on the live streaming session link (blue) under the “Online Lessons Section” and then click “join session” to view the live stream of the webinar.
  • Post any questions/comments on the live chat, or change your status to the “raised hand” to indicate you have a question for the Q&A session, at which point you will be addressed and you can unmute your mic to talk to the presenter.
  • Attendance will be verified in various ways (e.g. check in/out, polls, quizzes, etc.) in order to ensure the value of the training session.
  • Complete the evaluation form within 14 days of watching the webinar (you will find it on the course page).
  • Your certificate (also to be found on the course page) will be available for download within 14 days of the webinar.

NB: The attainment of CEUs or CPD points does not license any professional to practise outside of their scope or competency. CPD training is intended to broaden the knowledge of professionals and does not constitute professional training. The responsibility to practise within their relevant scope remains with the professional, regardless of what CPD training they attend.

Out of stock


Numerous new treatments with promises of amazing results are often circulated to mental healthcare practitioners. They all offer training and come with promises that you will “grow your practice with never-before-seen results”. Many of these approaches have no backing in research and appear to depend on tenuous, unproven theoretical claims. These approaches are often employed with inadequate informed consent being given. In this webinar, Dr Bing (who is both an esteemed psychologist and an advisor for the Discovery Advisory Panel for Psychology) will establish guidelines for choosing appropriate interventions, with regard to the ethical imperative of informed consent.
Upon completion of this seminar, delegates should be able to:
• Recognise the dangers of cognitive biases which may influence their choice of interventions,
• Recognise that an advertised approach is not necessarily a proven approach,
• Know the dangers in utilising unproven methods, and
• Evaluate whether an approach can ethically be used or not.
