Liverpool has been chosen host the Division of Clinical Psychology’s annual conference – ‘The Future Is Now’ and Clinical Psychology Fringe Festival between 18th – 21st January 2017.
Alongside the main conference will be the Clinical Psychology Fringe Festival in several venues around the city, bringing together the arts and discussions centred on mental health, and exploring issues such as sexuality and mental health, homelessness, suicide and addiction. The event will take place in popular venues such as Leaf, The Everyman Theatre, Open Eye Gallery, FACT, The Shipping Forecast and The Brink.
Each venue will host unique events encompassing poetry, dance, theatre, photography, music and more. All Fringe events are FREE entry.
The final day of the event will feature the Beyond The Therapy Room conference at the Gateway Centre, where a number of guest speakers will consider ways in which health professionals and services can improve physical and emotional wellbeing and help to build a more psychologically caring society, in broader ways than traditional one-to-one psychological therapy.
The week will culminate with a closing party curated by Soul Inspired Events – Soul Food will be a night of musical performances and food. There will also be psychological therapy, health and wellbeing conversations taking place on Saturday the 21st of January.
