The annual research conference held by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) will this year be a free one-day online event live streamed on Saturday 16th May (9.30am – 4pm). The webcast event is titled ‘Keeping clients at the centre: inform your practice with the latest research’ and is available free of charge for BACP members and non-members. Participants can either watch live on the day (and ask questions and make comments) or play back the event from 5pm Saturday 16 May until 11.30pm Wednesday 22 July 2020.
Nick Midgely from the Anna Freud Centre in London will give a keynote on ‘What can therapist learn from clinical trials’, and Naomi Moller and Andreas Vossler from the OU’s School of Psychology and Counselling will provide an overview of the research evidence on online therapy in their presentation on ‘What do we know about doing therapy online’. From this and other presentations participants can learn how therapeutic practice can benefit from the latest research. For practitioners the event also offers the possibility to network with other counsellors and psychotherapists.
