DCP Annual Conference 2020: ‘New Adventures in Clinical Psychology: Personal, Professional and Political Partnerships’
Date: 22 - 23 January 2020
Voco St Johns Solihull
651 Warwick Road,
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 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 also force us to develop more effective partnerships, personally, professionally and politically, beyond our usual systems.
This year there will be a ‘Children, Young People and Families stream’ organised by the Faculty for Children, Young People and their Families (CYPF), which will be taking the place of a separate CYPF annual conference. We are welcoming submissions relating to New Adventures in Clinical Psychology relating specifically to children, young people and their families.
