The Sixth Counselling and Psychotherapy Conference organised by the IACP, the University of Holy Cross, New Orleans and DePaul University, Chicago will take place in person, in Trinity College Dublin, on 20th July 2022. 

As per previous years, we are delighted to invite members to this exciting and successful annual conference in collaboration with our partners from the Holy Cross and DePaul Universities. After two years of the pandemic and running this event online, we are thrilled to be back this summer in person to the Trinity College Dublin to meet and reconnect with many American therapists presenting on the counselling and psychotherapy developments across the water but also, to meet IACP Members, who will be presenting on their experiences and developments within the profession. As per previous years - we are inviting all attendees after the event to a networking reception at the Café En Seine to reflect on the event and to get to know each other.    Event Schedule (schedule is subject to change):
