International Conference of Coaching Psychology 2019: Hosted by the BPS Special Group in Coaching Psychology

Embracing Diversity and Inclusivity – Challenges and Aspirations in Coaching Psychology

Thursday 6th - Friday 7th June 2019 at Holiday Inn London Bloomsbury

We are very pleased to announce that the Special Group in Coaching Psychology is holding its 2019 Conference in London’s West End. One of the rather special things about our Special Group is that we bring people from a wide variety of psychological and work disciplines. With our membership of over 2300, we are a rich source for leading edge research and practice in the coaching field, embracing all those who can contribute to and benefit from the growth of coaching psychology and its evidence base. Participants at our conferences and workshops tell us of this unique position we have, and we look forward to this year’s conference creating another great forum for intelligent debate and great learning.

Over two days you can expect to gain from and contribute to, a rich source of educational nourishment. As in past years, we will be offering keynote speakers who are leaders in their field, as well as specialist ‘streams’, which this year are on Mental Health and Wellbeing, Artificial Intelligence in Coaching, Neuropsychology and Coaching, and Team Coaching. We welcome submissions for workshops, research papers, posters and others related sessions under these headings.

Whether you are a student, an academic or a practitioner, whether you are a psychologist or simply interested in how psychology is informing the coaching discipline, we welcome you in celebrating diversity and inclusivity over this exciting two-day conference.
