Conference 2019


Gloucester Conference

17th - 21st July 2019

Association for the Development of the Person Centred Approach UK

Welcome to ADPCA UK!

The ADPCAUK 2019 conference is for people interested in the development of the person centred approach, founded by Carl Rogers in the 1940's.

We begin Wednesday 17th July with a pre-conference facilitated workshop on Trauma and the Person Centred Approach.

The Main Conference follows from Thursday through to Sunday. This is an opportunity to immerse ourselves in the person centred experience. The main conference is not facilitated: it is self-organised by the attending community. As a participant, you are welcomed to offer a workshop if you would like to explore any particular subject with a group of interested others. Space is available for an ongoing encounter group.

We invite participants to offer workshops in advance so that we can post these offers on the website (name, title, description in a few words) along with the days of attendance of the workshop facilitator. If you have particular requests for attendance at certain workshops on certain days, let us know and we will pass on requests to workshop leaders. They can take these requests into consideration when the conference begins and the community decides what and when it will happen  (the democratic community process). Anything PCA!  Email us.

Book for the whole conference or selected days by completing the booking form.

CPD certificates are available to attendees of any part of the event.

Timings: Wednesday (facilitated workshop) 2pm - 6pm; Thursday to Saturday  9am - 6pm and Sunday 9am - 1pm.

Reviews from Conference 2018

“This was one of the most nourishing of PC conferences and events that I have experienced. I valued how workshops were initially integrated into the main group, breaking out only when there was good reason.”

“What a fantastic opportunity to meet people  committed to working within the person centred approach. I particularly enjoyed the mix of meeting trainees at the beginning of their careers and those who have inhabited this world for many years, with equal respect afforded to all.”

The generosity of those who were willing to be filmed and observed offered an invaluable opportunity to bring our work alive; it is exciting to think this may be the start of an invaluable resource for training.”

“The lack of an agreed evening session worked well for me, pushing my personal discomfort in terms of facing informal social situations.  I welcome the challenges I experienced at the conference.  It was a great space to encounter and to experience.”
