About our CPD Resources

On these pages you will find all our resources - writings and presentations as well as an ever-expanding range of teaching materials like handouts and audio recordings.

For the last few years, all of these have been publicly available, but from now on - as previously announced - access to most of the resources is restricted to subscribers/members of the site.It is free to register for the site, and it only takes a minute - all you need to do is give your name and email, and you will receive a confirmation email. As a member of the site you will then receive occasional newsletter updates, never more than 6 per year (usually it’s about 4).

Once you have registered, every time you want to access any of the resources, all you need to do is log-in to the site, using the log-in link in the top right corner of each page. You are welcome to use and distribute these materials, including for your own teaching, as long as you reference them and observe the copyright, by keeping copyright details visible.

The Diamond Model of Clarkson’s 5 Modalities of the Therapeutic Relationship (2014) Copy
