SGCP 5th European Coaching Psychology Conference 2015 - Breaking New Ground

Thursday 10th December 2015 - Friday 11th December 2015 at Holiday Inn London Bloomsbury

Our 5th European Coaching Psychology Conference is an opportunity to get the latest updates on the international developments in coaching psychology and the Special Group for Coaching Psychology. Last year we celebrated our 10 years of the SGCP with regular events, publications and research. The central message of our 2014 Congress was diversity, inclusivity and collaborations in coaching psychology. This year we build on that message and the 2015 European Conference aims to inspire collaborations in the area accreditation, training routes and research evidence. The event will provide the opportunity to further what has been achieved and to explore what is ahead of coaching psychology and us as a group.

The Conference is an excellent opportunity for you to meet, connect, and collaborate with colleagues from around the world, including those at the forefront of developing coaching psychology. Our diversity and inclusivity is a hallmark of our identity and the Conference has been designed to be relevant not just to coaching psychologists but also to other groups who use coaching or who might be interested in becoming part of our growing community.

Whatever your contribution, we hope that you will want to be part of our exciting new developments and emerging collaborations. On behalf of the Special Group in Coaching Psychology, we welcome you to join us.

Dasha Grajfoner, Chair of the Special Group in Coaching Psychology

Pre-Conference Workshop

Positive Psychology Coaching: Putting Positive Psychology Science into Evidence-Based Coaching Practice

Positive Psychology is an umbrella term for a range of positive psychological constructs that relate to optimal human functioning. Given the aims and objectives of Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology are shared i.e. the enhancement of goal attainment and well-being, it is recommended that the Coaching Psychology practitioner have a broad understanding of the science of Positive Psychology and its application in an evidence-based coaching context.

In this Masterclass, Dr Suzy Green will provide an introduction and overview of key positive psychological theories, models and interventions that are relevant to coaching practice.

Suzy will share examples of how she integrates the complementary sciences of Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology in her own coaching practice. The Masterclass aims to be experiential in nature with participants encouraged to work on their own personal wellbeing goals within the session.
