JOIN US for a stimulating weekend
NEW DATE: Sat 15th – Sun 16th May 2021
Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, UK
Our biennial 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.
This year's conference is on the weekend of 15th–16th May 2021 at Woodland Grange, in Leamington Spa. A convenient, central location in the rural heart of England, it is easily accessible from both road and rail networks and only 17 miles from Birmingham International airport. There is also plenty of parking and accommodation (see below) available on site.
