ACCAPE 2020 Webinar Series

Integrating a philosophy of practice into Counselling and Psychotherapy accredited training: New controversies and new challenges in 2020

After an overwhelming response to the successful 2019 webinar series Recognition of Indigenous Healing Practices in Australia and Aotearoa, the Australian College of Counselling and Psychotherapy Educators (ACCAPE) has invited leading academic writers, teachers and trainers to its 2020 webinar program.  

A series of five webinars between July and November will explore how a lived philosophy of practice is central to developing a clear, congruent and critical view of theory and practice for student counsellors graduating from accredited counselling and psychotherapy courses.
