Continuing Professional Development (CPD) is a term used across many different industries to describe ongoing learning that contributes to an individual’s knowledge and skills, thereby enhancing their ability to perform within their vocation.

CPD can be defined as ‘a range of learning activities through which professional counsellors grow and develop throughout their careers to ensure that they retain their ability to practise safely, ethically and legally within their evolving scope of practice’.

Seminars, conferences, and training workshops are all different types of CPD events. These events will involve an element of demonstration or explanation of certain topics by those who are considered highly experienced within their field. Workshops have the added benefit of being able to put some of your new-found skills into practice and gain valuable feedback from your tutor and fellow students.

Attendance at events gives you the opportunity to engage in real-time learning with the material you are being presented. All professional counselling bodies recognise the importance of CPD and encourage practitioners to be lifelong learners.

Many counsellors work in private practice, which means that they often work alone or in small groups of other practitioners who may not themselves be counsellors. Attending CPD events gives counsellors the opportunity to network and meet other likeminded practitioners with whom they can forge relationships that outlast the event itself.
