CPD Video - Records as Evidence - Mr Peter Jenkins

London CPD


On Friday 27th June 2014 The Psychologists Protection Society Trust invited Mr Peter Jenkins to speak on the topic "Records as Evidence".  The session was part of the Psychologists Protection Society's 40th Birthday Symposium - "Professional Issues in Therapeutic Practice". 

Peter Jenkins is a Senior Lecturer in Counselling at the University of Manchester. He has been a member of both the BACP Professional Conduct Committee and the UKCP Ethics Committee. He has written widely on legal aspects of therapy, and has a particular interest in issues relating to confidentiality and data protection. He is the author of a number of books, including "Counselling, psychotherapy and the law" (Sage, Second edition, 2007).

This session explored some of the conflicting pressures on therapists, regarding standards and styles of record-keeping, and the potential use of therapeutic records as evidence in legal proceedings.

The event proved very popular, with over 250 therapists watching the event live online and in person at the University of Syracuse in London. The video has now been edited and is available to watch online for those who could manage to attend the event online or in person.
