We're delighted to provide you with selected online content from the Let the Voices be Heard! An International Conversation on Counselling, Psychotherapy and Social Justice conference, jointly planned by the American Counseling Association (ACA), the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the Irish Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (IACP).

Each of the nations has its own unique history which informs counsellors’ and psychotherapists’ understanding of, and approach to, social justice. Therefore, we feel there is much we can learn from sharing our different histories and experiences.
