“Diversity Counselling New Zealand” believes that continual professional development is essential for good practice. We are organising a series of seminars led by a range of presenters who have experience and knowledge working in the fields of mental health, counselling, social work, and education.
Our seminars are opening space for any professionals who are interested in community work. Because of the nature of our professional practice, any people who attend this seminar will be required to keep professional confidentiality.
In the seminars you will be able to share and connect with the knowledge and experiences of others, which can enrich your practice in your field.
If you want to join in our programme, contact to firstname.lastname@example.org.
