The BPS Psychotherapy Section Conference 2019 – The Outsider: Inclusion and Exclusion in the Therapeutic Relationship

Colleagues at the British Psychological Society’s Psychotherapy Section have offered me an exciting opportunity to collaborate and work alongside the BPS Psychotherapy Section, helping to guide and contribute to their position on SCoPEd. The prospect of working with BPS psychotherapy section is particularly attractive to me because of their commitment to the values I believe therapy must continue to embody – diversity, respect, equality and the value of relationship. Held in London on 18th October 2019, The BPS Psychotherapy Section’s 2019 conference “The Outsider: Inclusion and Exclusion in the Therapeutic Relationship” offers a number of £20 reduced-price tickets, both to students and to people who self-identify as belonging to marginalised groups. I think this is a fantastic way to honour the philosophy of the conference, promote inclusivity, and provide an opportunity for the voices of a diverse group of colleagues to be heard.Additionally, 10 FREE tickets are being offered to students who wish to present a poster on any topic relating to psychotherapy. I love that students are being encouraged to share their work and passions in this way!Please read the information on the conference below, which has been written by the BPS Psychotherapy section chair-elect Dr Phil Cox, and get involved! Hope to see you there!

Free conference entry for 10 poster presenters

We are giving away up to 10 conference free entry tickets to people who would like to present a poster about any topic linked to psychotherapy. Posters can be for any stage of the research process. I (Phil) can offer support and guidance on how to prepare or present a poster. Students on any counselling/psychotherapy or psychology course are particularly welcome – we are not looking for a work of art, just to support you. You’ll have the opportunity to stand by your poster during breaks and answer questions – it’s a great way to develop how to explain your research and ideas – it’s also great exam/viva voce practice. Feel free to contact me PsycheLetter@bps.org.uk
