Balens 8th CPD Conference Now Postponed to 2021

Monday 24th May 2021 - Ricoh Arena Coventry

Unfortunately, due to the current status of the COVID-19 situation, we have taken the decision to postpone our 2020 CPD event until next year 2021, in order to protect everyone’s safety and comply with restrictions coming into force.

We are working with the organisers of the Holistic Health Show, in order that our event will, as in previous years, coincide with the Show in 2021. However, the venue will move to new, larger premises that will assist with social distancing if required.

The Focus of our 2021 CPD Event will remain the same on Mental Health and Wellbeing. Helping therapists to understand what they need to look out for in their own clients, how they may be able to help and when they need to refer on.

We are delighted to confirm that most of our speakers are able to make the new date, with the exception of Dr Michael Dixon. We are currently working to find a new speaker for the event, and hope to welcome Dr Dixon as a speaker for our CPD Event at another time.

Dr Rosy Daniel, will be Mapping the Mental Health Territory for us, explaining the key symptoms and range of needs people have in body, mind and spirit when experiencing them.

Hannah Volpe will address The Legal Bit: Vulnerable Patients, Consent and Psychiatric Injuries, including examples of cases involving claims for psychiatric injury

Mike Jeffries looking at Current trends in mental health provision - Where do Natural Health and wellbeing Professionals fit into the scene now and going forward?

Please see our 2021 programme for event details and timings.

As previously our CPD event is supported by Balens and our Insurance partners.

Event Sponsors:
