SDS Webcasts

SDS are now the UK’s leading provider of interactive webcasts in psychology and psychotherapy field. You are now able to attend many of our events via live interactive webcast, from the comfort of your own home or office.

You see, hear and experience the seminar in real time through your laptop, tablet or PC Screen. You see and hear the presenter, their therapy demonstrations and any PowerPoint slides being projected to the audience. You can also print and open the handouts and you can engage in seminar exercises.

During the webcast you can submit questions to the tutor online and they will be regularly reviewed and answered by the presenter. You can also engage in a discussion about the course with other people participating in the webcast, vote if you agree with their opinions and take part in group surveys conducted during the course.

"I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the course. It was excellent, Paul was wonderful, engaging and kept a good pace throughout, he must be exhausted today! I was worried about studying via webcast but it worked really well, I will definitely do it again and recommend your course."

Claire Locke
Counsellor

"The last two days webcast, was my first experience of using this method and I must say it was a revelation. I felt like I was having a personal lecture and there were no distractions from other candidates, noise, paper shuffling and overtalking etc. The material was easy to access and visible alongside the lecture or in a separate window and [SDS staff] were quick to respond and very supportive."

AnnMarie Campbell-Smith
Counsellor, BA (Hons), DipHE, MBACP

"I found this webcast presentation both excellent and stimulating and I was immediately able to apply what I had learned. I found that I participated more in the group webcast discussion than I usually do when attending a course. I attribute my increased participation to feeling more relaxed and therefore I was able to fully immerse myself in the course content. There is also the huge financial advantage to consider, of not having to pay for accommodation, travel expenses or the loss of practice fees on the days of travel."

Here are the answers to some of the questions about the Webcast:

Q: How will I access the Webcast?
A: The Webcast is accessed through a special private webpage on the SDS Seminars website. Prior to the course, you are sent details of the Webcast page plus instructions on how to access it.

Q: Will the Webcast work on my computer?
A: The live Webcasts work on any web-connected computer, tablet or laptop with speakers and a reasonable broadband connection. If you can access the SDS Seminars website and can watch videos on YouTube, it shouldn’t be a problem. There may be occasional outages due to your local broadband connection but at worst these might produce occasional freezing that can be resolved by refreshing your screen. For any further problems, we ensure that the broadcast is available to all participants for 28 days after an event so that they can review any material they wish. No software download or phone is required.

Q: Why would I be interested in attending the Webcast rather than attending the event in person?
A: Two possible reasons – convenience and/or cost. You may not be able to get to the venue easily from where you live on the days when the seminar is running, whereas getting to your nearest computer screen may be much easier. Alternatively, you may find that the cost of travelling from your home to London (plane, train, petrol, parking and hotel costs) can be expensive and that you can have the benefits of the seminar from the comfort of your own home or office without these additional costs.

Q: Can I attend both in person and see the Webcast later?
A: If you book and pay twice, yes. However, without this you must opt for either attending in person OR participating through the webcast.

Q: What about the seminar notes?
A: You will be able to all access course materials via the Resource link once you have logged on to the webcast portal.

Q: Can I ask questions or make comments during the Webcast?
A: Yes. The Webcast has a chat feature for you to type in your questions or comments. These will be read during Q&A periods. For example, we might say, “we have a question from a counsellor in Newcastle who asks…” You will be able to hear the response to your question as part of the Webcast. However, please bear in mind that we of course cannot guarantee that every question asked will be answered, just as it is not always possible to do so in the room, due to time constraints.

Q: Can I engage in pair or group work on the webcast?
A: The online group chat facility in the webcast portal enables you to participate in group or pair work exercise discussions during the event. It also allows the raising of questions both amongst the delegates and to the tutor. This is sufficient for achieving course training objectives.

Q: Do I still get a CPD Certificate stating the number of training hours I’ve had if I attend the Webcast (rather than in person)?
A: Yes, providing you have viewed all the required hours of training.

Q: What about any technical problems?
A: The webcast has a dedicated technical team that constantly monitors broadcast quality. Should any difficulties occasionally arise at the broadcast end the team will work as rapidly as possible to resolve them. Technical issues at the receiving end are the customer’s responsibility. There is a Troubleshooting Guide document available on each webcast Resources Section. We would also strongly recommend you visit the portal in advance of a broadcast to familiarise yourself in advance with how it works.

Q: Will I still receive a CPD Certificate stating the number of training hours if I attend via the Webcast (rather than in person)?
A:
 Yes. You are awarded a CPD Certificate that is equivalent to the one delegates attending in person receive.
NB! To be eligible for this Certificate you must view the course in its entirety. We monitor viewing statistics and this must confirm the hours viewed that the course certificate requires. Without this confirmed attendance you will not qualify for the certificate.
