SLV.Global News: Fall into fall!

As the temperature drops we've found ourselves feeling nostalgic for warmer weather and for the stupendous summer, which resulted in a record number of volunteers joining us across all of our destinations! 

2018 has been awesome so far and with the British Psychology Society events on the horizon in the coming months there's still much more to come!

Read on for the full scoop!

Psychotherapist, Dr. Balick, in Bali!

 
 

Our 2018 SLV.Bali placements have concluded and WOW, this year has been truly incredible! Volunteers joined us in Bali from over 25 countries and in higher numbers than ever before! Thank you to everyone who took part. 

We are amazingly privileged to work in Bali’s only inpatient psychiatric facility as part of our placement and last month we were joined briefly by renowned psychotherapist, author and director of Stillpoint Spaces LondonDr. Aaron Balick.  

Dr. Balick was in Bali to facilitate training for our hospital partners and to take part in some of our projects. You can find out what he thought of his time with us by clicking the button below.

Stillpoint Spaces is a unique international organisation which seeks to engage with psychology, in depth, inside and outside the consulting room.

If you’re based in London, Berlin, Paris, or Zurich check out the array of interesting talks, events and workshops they offer on all things psychology and mental health.

Placement year? Placement here!

Did you know that many universities worldwide encourage their students to use our placements as part of a placement year or year in industry? It’s true!

If you’re after a unique and exciting opportunity to gain valuable experience in the mental health sector, at the same time as travelling to a beautiful place, please get in touch! We can advise you further about how to use our placements to bulk up your skill set and your credit hours.

BPS? BPYES!

It’s nearly November, which means it’s almost time for our first BPS Careers in Psychology event, which takes place in Newcastle on the 17th! We’ll be there and will be announcing the winner of our psychology society competition. It’s not too late to enter, so head to our Facebook page to get the rules and get involved!

Don’t fret if you’re unable to see us in Newcastle, as we’ll also be at the next BPS event on the 4th of December in London. Not in the UK? No worries! We’ll also be attending the American Psychological Association convention next August!
