PACFA is pleased to announce the theme of our next bi-annual conference, which will be held in 2022: Safety through Diversity.
Traditionally, PACFA conferences have taken place in Melbourne and Sydney where large number of our members live. However, as a national organisation, it is important that we start reaching out to members all over Australia, and making high quality professional development opportunities available in more locations.
Streams at the conference will be:
1. Diversity in Gender, Body, Kinship, & Sexuality
2. Indigenous Healing Practices
3. Psychotherapy, Counselling and the Politics of Mental Health
4. The place of research in the future of the profession
Nigel Polak (Chair) – College of Counselling Leadership Group
Dr Alexandra Bloch-Atefi – Research Committee representative
Pat Bradley – SA Branch representative and PACFA Board
Tony Clarkson – Expert in professional development
Brian Gabriels – SA Branch representative
More to come.
