Finding inner strength, connection and opportunity in times of crisis
About Carl Rogers Annual Conference
The Carl Rogers Annual Conference has been held Annually since 2014. The purpose of the conference is to bring together practitioners of Person Centered Approaches from around the world for Connection, Community, Encounter and the sharing of ideas, practices and experiences.
Because of the Covid Crisis, this year’s conference will be via Zoom. We will still maintain, with some creative adjustments, our normal format which is a mix of:
- Small Group Encounter meetings
- Large group Community meetings
- Presentations – live and pre-recorded – in a variety of formats that will include opportunities for discussion/dialogue with the presenter
- Topical dialogue/discussion groups
- “Coffee connections” – get togethers informally with others on Zoom
- Small, informal “pop-ups” – for people who want to get together to continue a dialogue
Our theme this year - Finding inner strength, connection and opportunity in times of crisis is particularly apt given the challenges all of us are facing. We’re adapting to the Corona-challenge by moving this year’s conference to an e-format via Zoom. We are compressing our agenda into three days, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, August 7 - August 9, making it easier to fit into people’s schedules.
These meetings take place weekly on Friday's from 12 noon to 3PM, Pacific Daylight Time. We generally have around 14 people attending from around the US and the world. The purpose is to allow attendees to feel Community and Support as we Encounter with one another. The meeting is open to all CSP members, as well as to others who the members may recommend. An online Zoom meeting.
Antonio Santos is hosting a weekly PCA International Zoom meeting, which is held on alternating Saturday and Sunday mornings at 6AM Pacific Daylight Time. This start time accommodates the needs of attendees who are spread across the globe. The meeting runs for two hours, and is well attended by members of the International PCA Community - CSP and others.
