Glasgow BABCP conference: 1st day - lecture rant, Anke Ehlers on PTSD, a workshop on the 'strong & curious therapist', and more.
Last updated on 21st July 2018
Yesterday was the first full day of the two & a half day (plus one day pre-conference workshops) BABCP summer conference in Glasgow. It feels like I've been going to these annual BABCP get-togethers for a thousand years. In so many ways, I think they're great ... although, for a society that prides itself on being evidence-based (more on this later in this post), I do think that the way these conferences are delivered is pretty dusty & traditional. Basically we sit in large tiered lecture halls and listen to major plenary lectures or we sit in smaller rooms for workshops that are very largely just lectures in more extended formats.
