This is material that I found hard to place elsewhere but which I think is generally worth knowing about. I hope you find something interesting to you - but if not please check back as I will update it regularly.
Resources at the top of the page are more general and typically less cognitively demanding. For more challenging resources scroll down. Podcasts and books have their own page - please help me make them grow and send me any you know about
Online courses on just about anything
FutureLearn provide free online courses on almost any topic you can think of. This will take you to a few examples that might be of interest. I've included Mindfulness, Anxiety and Depression, the Mind, and Low Back Pain just to illustrate how much is available. And if you just want to learn French, the history of food, or ancient Roman archeology that (and much more) is there too.
THE SCIENCE OF WELL-BEING
A remarkably popular course designed by a psychologist Laurie Santos. It started out just as an in-house course for Yale students and was so popular that they made it public. Four weeks, 2 hours a week. Why not have a look and see what made it such a success?
TWO SHRINKS POD
A diverse set of podcasts by two Australian psychologists. They talk about almost anything you can imagine. Topics include the therapeutic alliance (episode 2), schema therapy (28), COVID-19 (55-58), neuroscience (37) and a whole host more. Dip in and enjoy - it's not serious CPD but the range of topics is likely to include some new material for everyone.
SLEEP HEALTH RESEARCH
University of Arizona weekly seminars
Every Thursday 9am Arizona time (3 or 4pm UK) free seminars by world leading researchers - 36 in total. A fantastic line up - UK speakers include Colin Espies, Jason Ellis, and Alice Gregory - all are wonderful
BEHAVIOURAL THERAPY AND TOURETTES SYNDROME
Online information and video highlighting the behavioural treatment of tics. Outlines key behavioural interventions, downloadable therapist manuals, parents' guides, and videos showing and describing how treatment is delivered. The site also has internal links to further information about treatment with medication and a useful and large set of resources for families and professionals.
ONLINE INFANT MENTAL HEALTH TRAINING
An impressive review of online resources for training that goes up to May 2020. Thank you very much for alerting me to this fabulous piece of work which brings together material from around the world. Not all of it is free but most is.
E-learning on 100s of topics
This link will take you to an extensive range of e-learning sets. They are organised under medical specialties (makes sense!) so much of what might be relevant will be under the 'Psychiatry' tab or in 'General Practice'. Perhaps less well suited to those who oppose the 'medical model' but a lot of useful content here giving the basics on common and rare health conditions.
BRAINCAST - MAUDSLEY LEARNING
BRΛINCAST is a weekly 30-minute conversation with inspiring people from all around the world sharing their love about the most fascinating thing that happened to your head…your brain! From the microscopic magic of a molecular scientist to the all-encompassing worldview of a philosopher, from up-and-coming PhD students to well-established professors. Coming soon; dissociative seizures, addictions, sleep - or listen to recent recordings
ASSOCIATION OF PSYCHOLOGICAL SCIENCE
Challenge yourself or update your knowledge of psychological science. These recorded keynote presentations from leading scientists provide advanced summaries of cognitive science. In 2020 the topic is neuroscience. Previous years have address human development, memory, attention, language and social psychology. Worth an hour of your time.
