As we enter a new decade, the role of clinical psychologists is evolving as the profession aims to respond to and influence the challenges society faces.

Within and outside of the therapy room, clinical psychologists are working in increasingly diverse settings in order to confront issues of social justice, austerity and inequality. 

Whilst this will inevitably lead to challenges, it will also lead to new adventures.

It will force us to develop more effective partnerships - personally, professionally and politically, beyond our usual systems. 

The DCP 2020 conference will highlight the diverse and complex roles that clinical psychologists can play in relation to the big issues in society.

We look forward to providing a platform for quality research and practice from within the NHS and public services, as well as the independent and third sectors.
