9.30am - 4.00pm
The Social Justice Networking and Special Interest Group developed on the back of a workshop at the 2014 Annual DCoP conference in London. Counselling Psychology has a long-standing relationship and ethos around social justice and connected values. As a profession, it emphasises a holistic view, choosing to see individuals within their social context rather than in isolation. This group has a commitment to continue to cultivate this holistic frame and encourage a wider social justice perspective in counselling psychology and beyond. There is a lot of good work in this area which is already ongoing and has been conducted in the history of counselling psychology as a profession, and this Networking and Special Interest Group aims to facilitate dissemination and discussion of these ideas, in addition to promoting further action and developments in line with the philosophy of counselling psychology.
Our mission is to promote a social justice perspective in counselling psychology practice, training, research and scholarship.
The Social Justice Network is arranging a launch event for DCoP Members and if you wish to attend, please complete the details using the form below.
The event will include workshops on 'What is social justice?', 'Social justice practice in counselling psychology' and 'Social justice research in counselling psychology facilitated by Professor Carolyn Kagan, Dr Laura Winter and Professor Mick Cooper.
