President’s Letter January 2024
I hope that this letter finds you well, and that whether you have adopted new rhythms for a new year or are settling back into routines that have worked for you in the past, you are managing to find a healthy balance between work, self-nurture, and whatever other responsibilities you hold.
In this letter I want to share with you some exciting news about this year’s Conference, and important details about booking.
Having looked at the feedback from last year’s conference and explored different ideas, the Exec Team decided that our focus this year should be on Spiritual Distress. In a gathering of so many practitioners who all have experience in this field, we felt that it would be a great opportunity to share our stories, whilst also learning from others. So, as well as inviting keynote speakers from different backgrounds, we have planned in extra time for group discussion and workshops so that there should be plenty of space during the conference to explore and reflect on your own practice.
- We are limited to 40 spaces at this year’s Conference, so early booking is recommended (deadline 5th April)
- Cost: £300 AHPCC Members / £345 for Non-Members
- CPD points will be available for attending the conference
- We are exploring bursary options. If you require financial assistance in order to attend the conference, please contact us for further information: firstname.lastname@example.org (deadline 1st March)
To book, please fill in the online booking form.
