The 6 day Clinical Course will be conducted again 3 times in 2022 in May, August and November-December in Sydney and hopefully again in Brisbane and Melbourne as well as Sydney in 2023.

The Focussed Psychological Strategies (FPS) skills training (ST) component (4 day modules of the 6 days) of the CLINICAL COURSE HAS BEEN RE-APPROVED by the GPMHSC for the Clinical Courses for GPs to become eligible for the extra MEDICARE mental health item numbers.

The GPMHSC includes the Australian Psychological Society (APS) and the RACGP and the ACRRM and the ANZCollege of Psychiatrists and the MHCA. The accreditations can be used as a guide by psychologists and social workers and OTs as well as by GPs towards Medicare re-accreditation. The RACGP have approved 5 of the 6 modules applied for in the clinical course for Accredited Activity status each worth 40 CPD points and also by the GPMHSC for MH-CPD and for FPS-CPD.

NB GPMHSC $600 FPS Training Subsidy Available

Eligible GPs will be refunded $600 upon successful completion of FPS ST and once their FPS provider status is confirmed by Services Australia (Medicare). The subsidy is available for GPs who undertake training and register between 1 August 2021 and 30 June 2022.

 Advanced Clinical Courses are available in Sydney in 2022 for the Gestalt CBT-FPS course in February and March and in August for the hypnoanalysis CBT-FPS course.

Any eligible health professional can attend the first module of the clinical course as a stand alone Single Mental Health Module if there is availability due to coronavirus restrictions This module does NOT contain formal hypnosis but does contain both CBT and FPS. A re-application for re-approval for RACGP CPD points and GPMHSC FPS CPD will be made for the advanced courses in 2022.

The One Day Mental Health Module was previously also accredited for FPS CPD and is available for eligible health professionals who have completed FPS and CBT training previously. A re-application is also planned to be made for re-accreditation of this module in 2022.
