Creating a global PCE community
The association was formed to contribute to the support and growth of the person-centered and experiential approach in psychotherapy and counselling. We also aspire to contribute at a socio-political level and demonstrate the value of a PC & E informed approach to health, education and social equity. To do those things, the more connected we are, the better.
The Association is able to function thanks to a volunteer Board comprising of members from all over the world. Elections are held online biennially and any current individual member is eligible to stand as a candidate. We particularly welcome student members. Meet your current 2022-2024 Board, and learn more about the nomination and election process below.
Our international conferences are held biennially and are a wonderful opportunity to connect with the PCE world and latest research. Our next planned conference will be in Athens in September 2024. You can get a flavour of it from the organisers’ proposal here. Our most recent conference was in Copenhagen in July 2022 - there have been 15 in total so far.
The association acknowledges there are many inequities in the modern world and we do not wish financial constraints to be a barrier to joining us or participating in our conferences. That’s why we have a Financial Aid Resources (FAiR) approach. You are welcome to apply for help in meeting the cost of membership and conference fees. Find out more below. And soon we will have some small grants available for research and translation.
Athens, 9-13 September
PCE 2024 was originally due to be hosted by colleagues in Ukraine. As this is not currently possible, at the GA in Copenhagen, July 2022, colleagues from Greece offered to host in Athens, and the GA voted to accept this offer with the proviso of a full proposal being submitted to the WA Board.
The proposal has now been accepted and our next biennial conference will be Athens, Greece, 9th - 13th September 2024.
