Group of Trainers in Clinical Psychology Annual Conference 2018: Deeply connected? Innovation, Technology, Interaction & Change

Monday 12th November - Wednesday 14th November 2018 at Doubletree by Hilton Glasgow Central

The Clinical Psychology Training Programme Teams at The University of Glasgow and The University of Edinburgh are pleased to be hosting this year’s Group of Trainers in Clinical Psychology Conference. Technology is already used around the world to enhance access to education, to disseminate knowledge and to increase access to healthcare including psychological therapies. For some, this is a cause for optimism and hope, that the dissemination of evidence based scientific psychological practice is made more widespread. For others they see this as an erosion of our natural social context and the fundamental human encounter that is also at the heart of therapeutic practice. What is certain is that these patterns are likely to continue and potentially to become more complex. In addition, these patterns will interact with the rapidly changing health and social care landscape.

What then are the implications for how we train Clinical Psychologists and ensure they can best serve the communities they work in? What will be the background histories of those we train? What will be the social experiences of those that we are training them to work with? How will technology influence the future of our profession?

Call for Papers

Submissions are now open for the GTiCP Annual Conference 2018. We encourage Doctoral Programme teams and their stakeholders to consider this theme broadly and to submit presentations that can help our training community to consider the topics of innovation, technology, connection, relationships, networking, and the future. What do these topics mean for the training of Clinical Psychologists? How can we ensure that they are well prepared to meet the needs of the all people who use services? We welcome a variety of submissions: those with data and without, submissions based on lived experience, debates and interactive sessions, and more didactic or skill sharing contributions. We particularly welcome submissions from experts by experience who are connected to UK training programmes. Additional funding is available to subsidise the attendance of EBEs.
