Saturday, 22 November 2014 - 5:00pm

Overviewing the changes in provision of Talking Therapies during the last decade reflecting the statutory, private and voluntary sectors, Joan Foster will present a new look at Improving Access to Psychological Therapy (IAPT) outcome data. She will address the challenges facing the voluntary sector and explore how changes in registration might affect the private therapist. Finally, she will introduce an outline of her current work at the Centre for Psychological Therapies in Primary Care, University of Chester, enabling the voluntary sector to meet the contractual requirements of the statutory sector.
