Going Rural Health

Going Rural Health, together with Federation University, were happy to co-sponsor Psychologist supervisor training in Ballarat with APS Institute.
We held both a Masterclass in October (for current supervisors), and Part 2 - the 2 day workshop - of the full supervisor training, in November. Attendees were thrilled to have access to this training closer to home, and really enjoyed both facilitators.
The aim of bringing this to the region was to grow the number of psychology student clinical placements in our rural areas, where they are really needed. Thanks to Federation University for providing the venue in their lovely 19th century School of Mines building (SMB - below) at their psychology student clinic. Thanks as well to APS Institute staff, especially Anna and Ballarat branch chair Jacqui, for all their assistance getting these sessions to Ballarat, and distributing the information flyers to all of their members.
Thanks also to all of our lovely attendees, many of whom travelled significant distances to to get to our region - and some Melbourne-ites we hope we can convince to leave the bustle of city life behind, to embrace rural practice.
