17th summer & 3rd International PCA Encounter Group – Samothrace

Dear WAPCEPC members,

We are excited to announce that our Association will be able to host a P.C.A Encounter Group for yet another summer in the unique island of Samothrace,  Greece! You can find more information below! We really hope you can make it!  Feel free to forward to your contacts! 
Becoming a Person, an International Mental Health Professionals' Association is hosting the 17th summer and 3rd International P.C.A. Encounter Group from 7 until 12 July 2023 in Samothrace, Greece. During this P.C.A. Encounter Group, one can combine an experiential training seminar with their summer vacation in the unique island of Samothrace!

You can find the application form here: https://forms.gle/cmzP2dmnLWcSZK7v7

The international Association of Mental Health Professionals "ASSOCIATION FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE PERSON-CENTERED APPROACH & CHILD-CENTERED PLAY THERAPY SOUTH-EAST EUROPE" (A.D.P.C.A.C.C.P.T.S-E.E.) with the distinctive title “Becoming a Person" organizes the 17th summer & 3rd International PCA Encounter Group in Samothrace (Greece) from 7 to 12 July 2023 which is open to anyone interested.

The Summer Encounter Group in Samothrace is a combination of Experiential learning, Training Seminars and summer vacations. It is about an Experiential Training Seminar especially for those who work or intend to work with groups of people (teachers, motivational therapists, managers, social workers, head/chairmen of associations/clubs, students and professionals of humanities & social sciences, etc.) but also for anyone interested, as being an opportunity to meet, to provide and receive feedback, after a long period of social isolation.

Thus, through an alternative way of encounter and communication, based on the different way of relating that Person-Centered Approach and Child-Centered Play Therapy suggest, participants will have the opportunity to encounter themselves and others “here and now”, give and receive feedback and renegotiate their relationship with themselves and Others.

The experiential workshops will be held in Greek and English and certificates of participation will be given.

Banner for 5th PCE Europe Symposium
21 September 2023

5th PCE Europe Symposium 21st - 24th September 2023, Athens Greece

PCE Europe and the Hellenic Focusing Center invite you to Athens, Greece, from 21st - 24th September 2023 for the 5th PCE Europe Symposium to celebrate in person and online  25 years of PCE Europe, and explore the theme of: 

Welcoming Polyphony in a Changing World

Ιn a changing world, in a state of crisis, norms and language can’t possibly mean the same as they used to; hence polyphony prevails, both in the ‘outer’ and in the ‘inner’ world, since everyone has, or should have, a voice.

There are so many voices to be listened to, thought about, responded to.

  • Are these voices interchangeable?
  • Is there still a dialogue in process?
  • Can we be congruent with both the ‘outer’ and ‘inner’ voices?
  • Can we hear and include societal voices within a ‘protected’ psychotherapy practice?

Location   Athens, Greece   

The Ionic Centre is located in a neo-classical style building in Plaka, minutes’ walk from the walls of the Acropolis and the Parthenon. Next to the Aerides, the Tower of the Winds, Hadrian’s Library and the Roman period Agora, The Ionic Centre is surrounded by monuments and public buildings of the city.

Keynote Speakers

Manu Bazzano:   In Praise of Pandemonium – A polyphonic, contrapuntal perspective on the notion of the organism in experiential psychotherapies and beyond

Jo Hilton:   A look at how counselling theory has influenced our engagement with polyphony

Maria Malikiosi-Loizos:   Can we be congruent both with the outer and inner voices in an era of polyphony?

Siebrecht Vanhooren:   Chaos, Growth, and Existential Empathy
