WAPCEPC BOARD ELECTION 2014 - INVITATION FOR NOMINATIONS until 14th April 2014

 

 

The administration of the election for the Board of WAPCEPC is the responsibility of an independent election committee of three members: Jeffrey Cornelius-White (Coordinator), Allan Turner and Vera Alves. They are not members of the present Board and they are not candidates for the new Board.

An election for Board members will be held in Spring 2014 and we are now inviting nominations for the new Board.

The board of the WAPCEPC is an executive Board. It looks after the day–to-day management of the WA - the administration, finances, PCEP, membership, website and Newsletter, and any other tasks that further the aims of the WA.

The board reflects the variety of nationalities, cultures and traditions in PCE, but does not represent or favour any particular group of members or interests.

If you are interested in standing as a candidate, or if you want to nominate someone as candidate, please contact any of the board members to talk about what is involved in being a Board member. Further information about the election and about how to make a nomination can be found on the website at http://www.pce-world.org/about-us/statutes-and-bylaws/elections.html.  

The election for the WAPCEPC Board will take place in May, by email. Nominations have to be received by the 14th April 2014. Please send your nomination form to the coordinator Jeffrey Cornelius-White: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

PCEP special issue on: Person-centered/experiential group psychotherapy: Theory, research, practice and training: Call for papers

We are inviting manuscript submissions for a special issue of Person-centered & Experiential Psychotherapies (PCEP) on group psychotherapy

During the last fifteen years not much has been published about PCE group psychotherapy and counseling. Yet many person-centered/experiential colleagues are working with groups. (see survey chapters below). Therefore we want to motivate those of us who are working in that field to write down their theoretical thinking, research findings and rich experience about  person-centered/experiential group therapy. We have a special (be it not exclusive) interest in receiving manuscripts about PCE group therapy in different settings (inpatient, outpatient …) and/or with different types of  client problems, because it is especially in this domain that our literature is rather scarce. We also hope that practitioners as well as academics  will be represented amongst the authors of the papers in the Special Issue.

All papers go through the usual peer-review process for PCEP articles, so revisions may be requested, and acceptance of your paper cannot be guaranteed. Papers should be no more than 7000 words (references included).

Germain Lietaer and Paul Dierick will be the guest editors for this special issue (with  Michael Behr as contact editor of  PCEP). In case you would like to first discuss your potential contribution before starting with writing your manuscript, send an e-mail letter with your questions to Germain Lietaer. When your manuscript is ready, send it to both of us: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . A first version of your manuscript should be submitted by 31st November 2013 (a first provisional version may also be written in German, French, or Dutch). Once your article is accepted, your manuscript will be submitted into the  scholar one system of PCEP for the further review process.

Please circulate this invitation to anyone you think may be interested

Dear Person Centered and Experiential Friends,
We want to thank you for your vote of confidence in our proposal. We officially
accept the role of hosting the 2016 WAPCEPC conference here in New York City. We are
very excited and the metaphor we keep using is that we feel as if we have been
awarded our equivalent of the Olympics. We have a lot of work to do.
 
Thank you, and see you all in Argentina in 2014.
Sincerely,
Sarton Weinraub
