APPWA Training and Education
More information on APPWA Training & Education

More than a century ago Sigmund Freud developed his theory of the mind and of psychological treatment for disorders of the mind. There have been many developments based on his theories as clinicians build on his theory in the light of their own clinical findings. Read more about APPWA.
