Here at AfPP our members are at the heart of everything we do. We’re constantly looking for ways to support you and we’re always happy to hear how we can improve your membership experience. One of the ways we do this is with our Saturday Sessions Webinars. 

The previous webinars are available to watch here.

2021 Webinars

At the beginning of the first lockdown in March, we cancelled our face to face study days and our Annual Conference. Throughout the Covid-19 pandemic, our priority has been to continue to support our members as much as possible.

In June last year we introduced a programme of webinars to support your educational needs and provide you with CPD hours. We were delighted to be able to offer these free of charge throughout the whole of 2020. However, AfPP is a charitable organisation and it simply is not possible for us to provide on and offline events free indefinitely. Therefore we have taken the decision that during 2021 our webinars will be charged at a nominal hourly rate of £5 for AfPP members, and £10 for non-members. Student members will get webinars free.

We are committed to offering relevant topics during the course of this year. If there are any topics you are particularly interested in us considering, please let us know.

Human Factors Webinar

Our next webinar is on Saturday 23rd January at 10am. Speaking will be Prof Eva Doherty, Chartered Clinical Psychologist, Director of the Human Factors and Patient Safety (HFPS) training, at the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI). 

Webinar Objective

It’s known that emotional intelligence is a critical factor for effective decision-making, communication, teamwork and leadership. During the course of the webinar, emotion theories will be explained in a way that will be engaging and informative

Research has shown that emotional intelligence is associated with empathy skills, conflict resolution and managing stress. Eva will demonstrate how emotion skills can be used to become confident in one’s ability to manage situations which require empathic communication. A useful tool to regulate one’s own emotions and to manage stress will also be demonstrated.
