‘The Power of Collaborative Relationships: Working Together to Rebuild Lives and Communities’

About this event

This is the fifth International Conference on Pluralistic Counselling and Psychotherapy (ICPCP) which this year is being hosted by Robert Gordon University and Online Events.

Every year the pluralistic community bring together practitioners, academics, and those interested in the Pluralistic approach together to discuss, debate, and learn about developments in the field. Our ambition for these events is to open our arms to all comers and this year our focus is on the impact a pluralistic approach can have through collaborations – taking our practice out of the therapy room to impact of societal challenges.

As always, we have a self-select fee to ensure we include all those who wish to attend, in keeping with this we would ask that those of you who can afford to contribute do so to ensure we continue to support this annual event.

Along with the practice-focused workshops, talks, and discussions we are hugely excited to be welcoming keynote speakers from across the globe: Lisa Goodman, Usha Tummala-Narra, and David Denborough

This workshop will be hosted on the Zoom meeting platform where we will use our camera and microphones to interact with each other as a group.

To support practitioners in this time of extraordinary circumstances we are offering access to this group for a self-select fee.

All the colleagues at ONLINEVENTS and the presenters we collaborate with are committed to working in a manner consistent with the BACP Ethical Framework, which can be accessed on the link below. When registering for this event you are agreeing to be present and interact in a manner that is consistent with this Framework.
