Congratulations to Hafal’s  Big Lottery-funded Let’s Talk! team which has won runner up prize in the poster competition at the annual British Psychological Society conference in Brighton!

The winning poster introduced the Let’s Talk! project’s new Psychological Therapies Centre of Excellence Observatory, and highlighted issues around accessing psychological therapies for people in Wales.

Frank Kitt, Let’s Talk Coordinator, said: “We are absolutely delighted to receive a prize for our poster, which was a real team effort.  It was very well received at the conference: many psychologists and therapists were unaware that IAPS is not in operation in Wales and were very supportive of the ‘Let’s Talk! project’s objectives, as set out in the poster.

“As well as presenting the poster, Dr. Euan Hails and I were also filmed regarding our views on Continued Professional Development, and the footage will soon be uploaded on the BPS Website.”

Christine Wilson, Let’s Talk! Manager and BPS member, said: “The annual BPS conference attracts academics, researchers and practitioners from around the world. As well as top keynote speakers, presentations on recent research, this event includes the Society’s Award Ceremony and the competition for the best poster presentation. It’s an extremely important event which provided an excellent opportunity to publicise our work at the highest level, and to an international audience. We are delighted to have been able to present the poster and the icing on the cake for us was winning this highly competitive prize.”
