About this site

How to use this site

We want you to use the site in the way that best works for you. As you progress through a module you'll notice opportunities to access resources and other websites, watch videos, complete activities, and reflect on and evaluate your learning and practice.

“Doing” is an essential part of learning – in fact you will get the most out of this site if you deliberately seek opportunities to apply the knowledge. There are many ways to do this. We provide suggestions, but you are the real expert when it comes to identifying how this knowledge can be used within your every day life.  Ultimately we want  to give you information to stimulate your interest and reflection, and to build on the knowledge, skills and experience you already have. We want you to guide yourself through the material according to your particular needs and interests.

These materials have been designed so that you’re supported to learn in the way that you would naturally, out in "the real world". Part of this process means that you decide how much or how little to engage with different information and activities, and you decide when you are ready to leave a certain subject, and when to return and seek more learning.

As you go through a module, we recommend that you consider

  • how each opportunity to go deeper in in the material might benefit you
  • how to experiment with and integrate what you have learnt in your workplace/life
  • returning to a module at a later date to see what else you can benefit from after your earlier learning has become integrated
  • using the internet to do your own research into questions that arise as you go
 

The choice is yours, and the site has been designed to allow you to make these decisions.

What if I have questions?

Each page of the module has a space for you to leave a comment and start a discussion with other users. This is one way to seek answers to questions that arise from the material. Other things you could do include:

  • raising it in clinical supervision
  • contacting ADHC or other agency
  • speaking with your local psychiatrist
  • discussing it with a colleague to seek clarification

What if I have feedback?

We want your feedback, because we want to make the site as good as it can be at meeting your learning needs!

There will be an opportunity to give feedback at the end of each module, and we hope that you take a few moments to send it through. Otherwise you can always email us.
