bapca 2009 conference...

BAPCA 20th Anniversary Conference

Changes in Consciousness:
The PCA and a World in Transition

University of Reading
10 - 13 September 2009


Click on picture to download the brochure.

This year’s conference celebrated BAPCA’s 20thAnniversary. It took place against the backdrop of a global recession in which financial and environmental sands are shifting, where old systems no longer work and where experts appear at a loss for solutions.

At the same time we observe a tentative transition away from individualism towards more interdependent ways of thinking, relating and problem-solving. The conference invited delegates to consider this change in consciousness and to address the changes from a person-centred perspective.

BAPCA gives a big thanks for everyone who attended the conference and joined the effort to explore constructive ways to deal with the micro and macro challenges of our times. A deep thanks also to Carole Dale and BACP team for their precious support towards making the 20th Anniversary Conference such a big success.
