Change is the new norm.

In its fifth year, IPCD 2017 is dedicated to the role psychologists and related professionals have in enabling positive change, with four dedicated streams.

For professionals in any area of mental health. Talks and workshops introduce evidence based psychological therapies and assessments and disorders, as well as discussing issues relevant to mental health in the GCC & Arab countries.

For practitioners in any aspect of organisational development, employee performance and well being this stream introduces new assessment and development tools, discussing the impact of psychological research on employee performance.

For educational psychologists, teachers and those in child clinical services, we explore issues in child mental health, developmental disorders and learning disabilities as well as the role of psychological concepts and interventions in education and school performance.

A special one-day series of invited talks and workshops looking at the new and dynamic field of coaching psychology. Coaches working in organisations or in executive consultancies should attend to hear about new tools, methods and issues in coaching practice.
