Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, UK
Our bi-annual conferences are always inspiring and stimulating and a great networking opportunity. They are well attended by a range of interesting people from around the world, the majority of whom use the human givens approach directly in their work, but many others have benefited from it in their lives or are simply interested in how the rich psychological knowledge the approach encapsulates can be used to improve not only mental health and wellbeing, but any human endeavour.
Our next conference is being held on the weekend of 16th–17th May 2020 at Woodland Grange, in Leamington Spa. This convenient, central location in the rural heart of England is easily accessible from both road and rail networks and only 17 miles from Birmingham International airport. There is plenty of parking and accommodation available on site.
We are currently putting together a dynamic, practical two day event with lots of inspiring content relevant to professional practice – we'll let you know more as soon as the details are finalised.
