1st Announcement for the European Symposium

The 4th Symposium of PCE Europe

“Loneliness and Intolerance.
The PCA View of Today's Challenges”

December 3rd-5th, 2021 in Bucharest, Romania

PCE Europe and the Romanian Association for Person-Centred Psychotherapy

The aim of the symposium is to bring together practitioners, students and those interested in the Person-Centred Approach to reflect on how this specific approach can provide useful resources and inspiration for practice, as well as for learning and living during those difficult times that the world and the entire humanity are currently facing.



The symposium will also offer keynotes, workshops, lectures, panel discussions and poster presentations. 
We are calling for presentations from the participants in the hope of having an exchange of experiences, views and ideas. 
We are asking you to submit your abstracts by September 15th, 2021. More details coming soon.
