Continuing professional development (CPD) is the means by which members of our profession maintain, improve and broaden their knowledge, expertise and competence, and develop the qualities required in their professional lives.
Professional development is an ongoing process which continues over the course of a career, adapting to changes in practice environments, professional domains, new information and consumer needs. Carefully tailored professional development can assist competency and relevance in practice, which in turn assists members of the public who seek psychology services. (Source AHPRA Website).
All of our members complete a minimum of 10 hours of peer consultation activities annually; and a minimum of 20 hours of other CPD activities annually. In accordance with its mission and aims, ICP aims to provide continuing professional development events and opportunities for both ICP members and other members of the professional community (including where appropriate, Clinical Psychology trainees, non-member Clinical Psychologists, Psychologists, Psychiatrists and other interested professionals).
