This one day training event will be led by up to four trainers; Dr Aimee Spector (Clinical Psychologist and original developer of CST) and Dr Joshua Stott, Dr Helen Donovan and Dr Gemma Ridel. All are Consultant Clinical Psychologists with extensive clinical and research expertise. If you attended training over 5 years ago, this may serve as a useful refresher. Alternatively, you may have other colleagues who may benefit from the course. Attending training equips people with skills to offer CST and ensures that it is delivered in a standardised, person-centred and effective way. The course combines traditional teaching with interactive sessions, small group exercises and DVD observation. There will be a maximum of 25 people with each trainer.

Time: 15:00:00 - 16:00:00

Organised by UCL Division of Psychiatry

The Eastern Collaborative Project (ECP) has partnered with the Southern Services Reform Group (SSRG) to develop workshops to promote consumer independence, well-being, quality of life and capacity to remain living in a community of choice. The workshops are based on the following principles which reflect a self-management model: client-centred practice, managing your own care and support, partnership and active participation, informed decision making and goal orientated practice embedded into a solution focused approach. This model focuses on peer leadership - participants learn from each other through sharing experiences and collective problem solving. The presentation will explore the background behind the training program, results of trials and development of the train the trainer module and include tools and resources that have been developed and have been successfully embraced by participants.

4 September, 2015 - Minds of Caste - An inter-disciplinary seminar on how Caste identities shape the Mind

Time: 17:30:00 - 20:00:00

This unique inter-disciplinary seminar will address some of the following questions: How does caste shape individual minds and determine collective mentalities? Why and how does caste discrimination impact upon the inner lives of both the perpetrators and their victims? Is caste practice normative or a pathological denial and threat to hierarchy and status? What might be the cultural and psychological pathologies of the perpetrators of casteism? What is the nature of the stigma and disclosure of caste identity? How is caste identity psychologically managed both individually and collectively? How is caste merit constructed and perpetuated? Is caste essential to Indian cultural identity? Does conversion help? To what extent do casteism and racism overlap or differ in their psychological antecedents and consequences? Can anti-racist interventions in the clinic (what is generally known as inter-cultural therapy) be applicable to the Indian context? For whom?

17 September, 2015 - Neuroscience Career Network: Grant Writing Workshop

Time: 13:00:00 - 16:00:00

The aim of the half-day session is to help Investigators improve their applications for funding, whether they are project grants or fellowships. It will be led by two senior UCL researchers, Professor Neil Burgess and Professor Simon Mead, who have extensive experience of applying for funding and of sitting on the committees that decide which science gets funded. This is a rare opportunity to improve your 'grantsmanship' skills, gain insight into how funding committees work and to receive constructive feedback on your applications. To participate in this workshop, each participant must provide an abstract, lay summary and full scientific proposal (it may be a preliminary application) for either a grant or fellowship application by 27th August 2015. Costings are NOT required.
