Technology and AI in Psychological and Behavioural Intervention

On demand webinar details 

There has been huge growth in the use of technology and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in behavioural interventions. As digital innovations evolve and become more widespread, psychologists should be at the forefront of these developments, both from the perspective of ethics and evidence. 

Digital technologies can be used to inform and educate the public, support and train care providers, and provide remote and self-care to individuals. In 2022, the WHO stated there needs to be a global transformation to promote mental health care for all, and scale up care for common mental health conditions. Psychologists should be deeply involved in the digital transformation of these educational, psychological and behavioural interventions.  

This learning is designed to provide an overview of the current state of technological application within behavioural interventions. For example, in health and coaching contexts in North America, behavioural science is used in product design as standard; and many psychological and behavioural interventions are delivered using digital technology. 

You have 8 weeks to access the recording and resources from date of enrolment. 

This webinar was delivered live in October 2023 and is available in English only. 


Is this course right for me?

Psychologists who deliver behavioural interventions, or are involved in designing and testing behavioural interventions. Innovation in technology impacts behavioural interventions across the scope of psychology, though this learning has a stronger focus on health and wellbeing contexts.  This CPD is useful for individuals who want to understand more about technology-augmented and technology-delivered behavioural interventions in health and well being contexts. 

It is suitable for those at any stage of career who would like to learn more about the intersect of behavioural interventions and technology, including AI.


Learning outcomes

By the end of this two-hour webinar, participants will:

  • Understand how behavioural science can inform the development of behavioural interventions in technology 

  • Differentiate between technology-augmented interventions and interventions delivered wholly through technology 

  • Assess the ethical considerations related to technology and AI use in digital behavioural interventions.
