  • Oxygen and the Brain – 3 CPD Points (PSB002/025/11/2015).  This course is important for all psychologists who need to understand the effects of oxygen deprivation on the brain and behaviour, and to alert them to the potential influence of oxygen deprivation in the lives of patients who have been oxygen deprived, e.g. with near drownings, some attempted suicides, motor vehicle accident patients who sustained chest injuries and even sleep apnea.
  • Neuro-Imaging – 3 CPD points (PSBOO2IO26/11/2016).  This course is important for all psychologists who work in the field of neuropsychology, and is aimed at helping them to gain knowledge and insight about the types of  imaging available and what their differences are e.g. CT, MRI and DTI.
  • Depression, Dementia and Delirium: Differential Diagnosis – 3 CPD Points (PSBOO2/O27 /11/2016). This course is for all psychologists and other health care professionals who need to tease out to what extent a patient’s symptoms are likely to be due to depression and to what extent they are likely to be due to dementia.  A description of delirium is included to help put the other two diagnoses in perspective.
