WPF Therapy 50th Anniversary Conference: Endings as Beginnings – 18 July 2020

WPF Therapy 50th Anniversary Conference: Endings as Beginnings – 18 July 2020

In 2019 WPF Therapy celebrated 50 Years since its beginnings in 1969.  Our anniversary is on 18th July and we are hosting an online conference on Endings as Beginnings.

Whilst we anticipated that the past year would be a year of change and growth, we did not anticipate that 2020 would be a year that has lead us to move out of our building at Magdalen Street and to provide our therapy services and training online. However, each ending brings about a new beginning and our conference is an opportunity to come together and reflect on the next stage of our growth as an organisation and as a profession and in particular how we adapt to the new world. Join us as for this day of celebration, reflection, examination and sharing.
