Sat 12th – Sun 13th May 2018
Leamington Spa, Warwickshire, UK
Our next conference will take place on the weekend of 12th–13th May 2018 at the beautiful venue of Woodland Grange in Leamington Spa, Warwickshire.
We're currently working hard on finalising our list of speakers who will be exploring the topic from a wide range of interesting angles.
Our bi-annual conferences are always inspiring and stimulating – with broad-ranging talks and presentations – 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.
Information on the speakers and the variety of topics they will cover will follow as soon as they have been confirmed, as will the prices.“Such a good all round programme with a group of very diverse speakers. I feel proud to be part of such an inspiring, innovative and thoroughly good organisation.”
