We believe in building a community where psychologists in the social service sector can come together to exchange ideas, support and learn from each other.

As such, we are proud to present the CPH Practitioner Series – a series of practitioner-oriented workshops aimed at equipping psychologists in the social services sector with applied skills. The inaugural workshop will be “Behavioural Strategies in Interventions for Change ” by Dr Chelsea Chew on 13 July 2018.

Synopsis: This seminar will encapsulate principles and procedures from the field of Applied Behaviour Analysis needed to ensure behaviour change. Key behavioural principles and the finer points needed to ensure success in interventions will be discussed and presented in different examples. The subtopics include analysing antecedent variables, developing new behaviour (for instance, by task analysis and chaining), decreasing behaviour (such as through extinction and differential reinforcement), and planning for generalised behaviour change.

Speaker: Dr Chelsea Chew started her career as a behavioural therapist with autistic children. She holds a Doctorate in Educational Psychology from the University of Queensland (Dean’s List recipient and best thesis awardee). She is currently a Senior Educational Psychologist in the Community Psychology Hub and she sees children with behavioural and emotional issues in addition to providing clinical supervision. She previously lectured in NIE and helped to train psychologists in the masters programme there.
