Keeping Psychotherapy Relevant to These Changing Times.

IAHIP held a very successful conference on the theme of: Keeping Psychotherapy Relevant to These Changing Times, in the Clarion Hotel, Cork on the 4th March 2016.

Jean Manahan, CEO Irish Council for Psychotherapy, gave a very inspiring keynote speech on Keeping Psychotherapy Relevant to These Changing Times.  Jean’s keynote speech is available HERE to listen to (kindly recorded for IAHIP by Austin Adesso, Video Storyteller @ OurGrandStory.com).

The conference papers, workshops and poster presentations reflected the conference theme. There were 28 presentations in all, divided into the following categories: 14 papers, 7 workshops and 7 poster presentations. We were very happy to have two papers and a workshop from the U.S.A. and are grateful for the international interest in the conference.

Explorations after sudden death. Congratulations Monique!  The poster presentations are displayed below.
