BACP Summit 'Social Justice - realising potential'

Should counsellors limit their focus to their clients' inner troubles? Do you avoid getting involved wit the external social and political factors that shape your clients' lives? This summit will explore how our profession and individual practitioners can make a difference beyond the counselling room.

Our keynote speaker Professor Jeffrey Kottler Ph.D says 'There is no work more rewarding and challenging than efforts to reach out to those who are least likely to ever receive help. The presentation will explore the ways that each of us can reach beyond the usual bounds of the profession to make a difference in the live of desperate.'
