I believe that ongoing learning is central to being an effective psychologist, but also feeling happy and rewarded in the profession. Learning is supported by high quality records and reflections, so I build tools to support psychologists to better capture their learning experiences.

The Continuing Professional Development Workbook is a companion for Australian psychologists to assist them in meeting the professional development requirements outlined by the Psychology Board.

Designed by psychologists, the workbook guides psychologists through the process of creating a comprehensive professional development record by combining an outline of the requirements, a guided learning plan, professional development record, and space to tally and reflect on your learning activities during the year.

"This work book is very contagious. When I initially took it to supervision it caused a lot of interest, and every psychologist in the room wanted one. Organising our CPD points and being able to reference a developmental path through our many hours of supervision is made possible by this book. Great reference resource. Now when I look around the room all my colleagues have their own CPD work book. As they are filling up, I expect to see another rash of them around the room shortly!"

"My biggest challenge with the requirement for a journal entry for each PD activity, is that it's so easy not to get around to it. I know I'm not the only one that this applies to. Another challenge is that notes from PD activities disappear under a pile of stuff on my desk, later requiring that time is spent finding & ordering them. Again, this has been known to happen to others. So for these reasons, I find the PHF's CPD workbook very useful: all the notes are kept in the one book and the journal entry is frequently completed (or close to) before I leave the venue. Decades ago, when the ABC began its program, The Inventors, a dame called Diana regularly asked, "Does it come in different colours?" No need! The pillar box red on the cover stands out even on my desk."

"I found the CPD workbook very useful in organising a range of diverse information...in fact I'd love to order another!"
