Group of Trainers in Clinical Psychology Annual Conference

Facing the Future: Stronger, Better, Faster?

The Trent DClinPsy team is the host this year for our national GTiCP conference. We look forward to welcoming you to this year’s event for trainers of clinical psychology where we hope to further develop the future of our profession.

The conference focuses on developing clinical training in line with new ideas, changing practice and looking to the future with a chance to discuss, share ideas and shape better training programmes for clinical psychology. There is an emphasis this year on sharing innovative ideas to develop trainee learning to make it stronger, better and more efficient.

We have some great speakers lined up for this year’s conference including Prof Peter Kinderman MA MSc PhD (he will be giving his keynote presentation via video conferencing) Professor Paul Gilbert OBE and Professor Michael Wang.

Having this year’s conference at an exciting venue such as Center Parcs is going to add to our learning experience and hopefully inspire. Sherwood Forest has a purpose-built conference center 'The Venue' in a peaceful setting which provides an ideal environment to stimulate and motivate delegates. There is space for small meetings as well as large conference spaces for us all to hear our key note speakers.

The accommodation at Center Parcs is in Lodges and we have two options available, the Executive Lodge which has three bedrooms all en-suite and the more cost effective Woodlands Lodge again has 3 bedrooms but with a shared bathroom. Breakfast will be provided. On booking you can choose which type of Lodge you require and request who you share with.
