The Division of Counselling Psychology and the Conference Committee invite submissions for the 2019 DCoP Annual Conference to be held in Cardiff.

The Division’s strategic aim is to promote a strong external message of psychology’s value, and to put Counselling Psychology on the map as a real force in applied practice. We invite you to share your experiences and knowledge from all areas of applied psychology, in particular work that relates to the following conference themes:


·Professional Practice


·Social Justice



Please submit via the DCoP conference homepage (www.bps.org.uk/dcop2019) . Submissions can be in the format of oral presentations, workshops, symposia, and/or poster presentations. This year we welcome a new format of a discussion/panel session, providing a more interactive and dynamic way of relaying your tale!

We welcome submissions from experienced, recently qualified, and trainee counselling psychologists. A comprehensive guide and further information about submitting is also available on the conference homepage. We urge you to please pay special attention to the submission guidelines to ensure that your tale does not come to an unexpected end!

The conference committee reserves the right to make minor changes such as a spelling error to your abstract. Occasionally submitters are asked to edit their abstract according to feedback given. This will happen mid-March and there is a very short deadline for returning the edited abstract – one week.

Final decisions on abstracts submitted will be made early April.

We recommend that if you are a trainee asking your research supervisor, or research colleague if you are qualified, to read your abstract for feedback before you submit.

Remember, it’s YOUR conference, and YOUR content is what makes it, so make it count!
