"This is the most comprehensive coverage of CPD to date. The book concludes with the sentence, “what a difference CPD should make!” What a difference to your personal CPD, and your service planning this book should make! It is bang up to date and highly readable. I expect to see many a thumbed-through copy on clinicians' desks in all professional groups." Tim Cate, Professional Head of Clinical Psychology and Counselling, DCP Chair-Elect, Stockton on Tees
