"My confidence, competence and credibility have greatly increased"

"Just Psychology’s training in culturally competent assessment enormously developed my practice as a consultant clinical psychologist in the NHS and as an expert witness in the courts. The course addressed the fundamentals of culturally determined assumptions and much more specific matters of migration and child rearing practises across cultures including the use of punishment. The course was small and interactive and allowed for the opportunity for such matters to be explored in real depth. There was an excellent reference list.
