Logo of Social Psychological Research United Kingdom

The Society for Psychotherapy Research UK Chapter, where Professor Naomi Moller is President and Dr Andreas Vossler is member of the Local Committee, is proud to offer a series of free online research events for psychotherapy researchers (both novice and experienced) and research-interested practitioners. Employing a range of different event formats (e.g., panel discussion, online lecture, student presentations), expert psychotherapy researchers will present and discuss their current research projects and methodologies with their implications for psychotherapy practice. An online student research seminar will offer clinical/counselling psychology students the opportunity to present their own research and view research being done by other students.

The online events are available free of charge for both SPR members and non-members. Please register via Eventbrite.  Open to everyone – students, researchers, and practitioners!
