Welcome to Affordable Professional Development Training!

APDT is an organisation that has been set up to provide high quality professional development workshops at affordable prices for mental health professionals and other members of the community.


Our next event...

Super Early Bird extended by a few days for our March workshop !


We now have four workshops organised for 2018.  These are all in Parramatta, but we hope to take one to Canberra and / or Brisbane during the year as well so keep a look out for new advertising!

In March Dr Brendan New will present a workshop on contact within out-of-home care.  In May Dr Caroline Stevenson will return to talk about adults with ADHD.  In July we have Linda Valenta presenting on interventions with young people who engage in problematic sexual behaviour and in September Dr Janina Szyndler will teach us what every therapist needs to know about family law.  

Again we are offering you Super Early Bird Specials (if you book and pay at least 2 months prior to the workshop) for all our workshops, so that you can save a fantastic 20% on the regular price, as well as the usual Early Bird Special (if you book and pay one to two months prior to the workshop) which saves you 10%.

 We look forward to seeing you at one of our workshops soon!






 I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the presentation yesterday and how valuable I thought it was. I have been working in pain management in private practice for several years and I was pleasantly surprised that yesterday gave me fresh ideas about how to conceptualise clients' experience of pain and present the information to them. (Suzanne, Clinical Psychologist)  

 I found the workshop very practical with skills that I can apply straightaway in therapy. (Evelene, Psychologist)

 I love the vibe of your workshops - they're always so friendly!
