12th World Association for Experiential Psychotherapy and Counseling conferenceinary, Innovation
Welcome! Please join us for the 12th World Association for Experiential Psychotherapy and Counseling conference (known as the PCE 2016 conference). This conference has the potential to be a historical event in the United States. For the first time in over a decade, researchers, clinicians, students, and academics representing the major tribes of the Person Centered and Experiential Approaches will come together to explore the current state of our philosophy.
The PCE 2016 conference will feature keynote addresses, a variety of presentations, workshops, panel discussions, small groups, encounter groups, professional development, as well as social and tourism related activities. Additionally, there will be a pre-conference two-day workshop on Motivational Interviewing led by founder William Miller. And, there will be a post-conference La Jolla Program encounter group to begin on Sunday July 24th.
The theme for the 2016 PCE conference is: Integrity, Interdisciplinarity, and Innovation. Following the theme we hope you will recognize our attempts to plan this conference with innovation. Look around the site and you will see we are doing things differently, hoping to align our egalitarian beliefs with our conference practices. In particular we are working to make this conference affordable and accessible to students and young professionals around the world. To this end we are facilitating a global network of barter, exchange, trade and giving to help make this conference more accessible for participants from all backgrounds.
We are saddened by the loss of Dr. Natalie Rogers (daughter of Carl Rogers) who passed away on October 17, 2015. Natalie was a constant supporter of this conference and because of her we have chosen the 1924 photo of Carl Rogers, his wife Helen, and their Model T Ford automobile traveling to New York City as a symbol for our conference. Rogers, full of hope and idealism, found in New York City a deeper understanding of his spiritual beliefs and a love for psychology, which would change his life forever.
To honor the life and work of Dr. Natalie Rogers, we will host a special presentation given by her official biographer, Dr. Sue Ann Herron. This presentation will include a video addresses prepared by Natalie prior to her death. And, for our second special presentation, Dr. Eugene Gendlin, founder of Focusing Oriented Therapy, will receive a lifetime achievement award.
Regarding tourism, we have exciting, unique, and personalized plans for exploring New York City. As opposed to offering "mainstream tourist" sightseeing, we would like to offer experiences related to a variety of local practices and traditions, such as food tours and shopping tours of local neighborhoods, musical concerts, architectural tours, and a Staten Island Ferry trip, to name a few. We ask conference participants to suggest "dream tours" to us.
