About Carl Rogers Annual Conference
2021 will mark the 8th year of The Carl Rogers Annual Conference. 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
PERSON CENTERED PSYCHOTHERAPY
Carl R. Rogers developed a profound practice and understanding of psychotherapy. Rogers’ essential insight is that certain qualities of the relationship between therapist and client (or person and person) can be learned and practiced to create an optimal interpersonal climate for personal growth, development, and healing. In this course, we will be learning through our own experience, reflection, and practice.
March 5th - 7th 2021.

This workshop presented by Barbara and Heather Williams will explore the person centered approach and play therapy. With their own developed philosophy, they build upon the principles of humanistic psychology developed by Carl Rogers, Virginia Satir, and Virginia Axline. Their work focuses on the deep respect for a child and the child’s wisdom.
