Upcoming Conferences

International Bibliotherapy Conference 2014
Wednesday 29th October 2014,  9.30 – 4.30

The aim of the conference is:-

  • to promote bibliotherapy,
  • help delegates understand what bibliotherapy is and how it works
  • to inspire them to consider delivering bibliotherapy in their own settings.

Positive Lives has been asked to run a Story Cafe workshop for this event.

The themes of the workshops will be along the lines of working with young people, working with older people, using creative writing in your bibliotherapy practice, experiencing bibliotherapy etc. We will also be looking at how bibliotherapy meets government and health services health care agendas.

Lunch and refreshments are also included and the cost is £275 per delegate.

Places are limited.  A more detailed programme will be posted in July.
