For 25 years, the BACP Research Conference has been a place where researchers and practitioners come together to exchange ideas on important research findings, presented in open discussion with constructive critical debate and helpful dialogue. The conference fosters a climate where all are welcome to share in both the learning and social experience.

Over this time the conference has been attended by representatives - both presenters and delegates - from 23 countries, making it a truly international event.
