Who Should Attend:
This 5 hour online workshop is to assist those quite new to completing Supported Assessments, as well as being a refresher for those more experienced senior clinicians.
It is suitable for ACC Approved assessors and those seeking approval from ACC to become assessors.
This workshop cannot guarantee ACC approval of you to become an assessor, but it does offer guidance in how to tackle the task once you are an approved assessor.
Diane Clare will facilitate this workshop using ZOOM. Participants will be able to do exercises in separate (virtual) break out rooms.
All you need is a computer with internet connection. You will be sent the details to access ZOOM, after you have registered.
PLEASE NOTE: your attendance for this training is not a guarantee of ACC approval for you to become an assessor nor is it part of ACC's in-house training as it is a clinician's take on the challenges in this task.
