How to get the most out of your Clinical Consultations:

1. Format - There are 4 Clinical Consultations in total. Each includes a live webinar presentation, a set of self-reflection guides, a selection of best practice videos and an evaluation component completed online. You may complete the series of Clinical Consultations within a minimum of 4 months, and a maximum of 1 year after your Intensive 2 Day In-Person Training Course.

2. Webinars - The webinar series is designed to offer clinical oversight and support to you as a new Facilitator and so, ideally, you should try and schedule the webinars for dates that closely match your own progress through your first facilitated Caring Dads group.

  • Clinical Consultation 1 focusses on weeks 1 - 3 of the Group Intervention program

  • Clinical Consultation 2 focusses on weeks 4 - 8 of the Group Intervention program

  • Clinical Consultation 3 focusses on weeks 9 - 14 of the Group Intervention program

  • Clinical Consultation 4 focusses on weeks 15 - 17 of the Group Intervention program

We know that our Facilitators’ schedules are tight, and we try and populate our calendar to ensure that webinars are available at a variety of times, and indeed across a variety of time-zones. Upcoming webinars are shown at right. Email us if you’re struggling to find suitable dates and times. Once scheduled, you will receive email updates with links to connect to the webinar. Please make sure you check the Webinar System Requirements section below.

3. Self Study - Before attending a webinar complete the Self-Reflection Guides and watch the Best Practice Videos associated with that respective session. After each webinar, be sure to download the Presentation Slides and complete the Evaluation for that session. You can access the resources for each session using the tabs above. After each webinar you attend you will also be emailed a link to a recording of that session to reinforce your learning.

4. Certification - As you go through the Clinical Consultation process, keep a note of the dates when you attended each session, and who the Trainer was. Once you have completed all 4 Clinical Consultations, head to the Certification tab to finalize your accreditation. If you happen to miss a webinar you may watch the recording of the session, complete the respective Self-Reflection guides, and complete the Session Evaluation in order to catch up. However, please note that only a single webinar may be caught up in this fashion. Email us to communicate about your progress.
