Time is running out to register for the 2016 conference

The 2016 conference is taking place in Melbourne from 9 to 11 September 2016 and is jointly hosted by PACFA, SCAPE, CCAA and APECA.

Time is running out to register for the conference so go to the conference website to register online.

The conference theme, Transformation through Relationship: The Heart and Soul of Therapy, will draw together aspects of integrative, spiritual, and educational practice, transforming the relationship between therapist and client, teacher and student. The encounter of being a therapist or an educator is one of connectedness and deepening; a co-created process that is the heart and soul of therapy. The conference will offer a supportive space to share and explore how we, as therapists and educators, offer the relationship as our field of practice – a way to help all involved to improve their mental health and wellbeing.

Stream 1: The heart and soul of therapy
Stream 2: Spirituality
Stream 3: Teaching and learning
