What's included

This year’s Private Practice conference has been developed by Private Practice committee members (who all work in private practice) in collaboration with BACP and will explore some of the most difficult problems that can emerge for therapists of all modalities.  

From ethical dilemmas, where there seems to be no obvious answer, to the kind of unexpected crisis that can prove overwhelming, such as the death of a client by suicide, the threat of stalking or harassment, a legal request for your patient notes or a complaint of malpractice. We’ll also look at areas that therapists – and supervisors - may struggle with, including finding effective ways to discuss the race construct, racism and difference. Finally, we’ll explore the growing number of technological challenges to the therapeutic frame. We’ll consider how this can spill over into compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and help you to understand your own limitations to prevent burn out using practical and self-help measures.  

For the very first time, the conference will also include a live panel discussion to explore ethical dilemmas and questions submitted by attendees. 

The aims of the conference are to: 

  • increase confidence and competence in tackling difficult and sometimes taboo topics in therapy
  • enhance ethical decision-making skills and apply them to complex scenarios. 
  • strengthen self-awareness and personal boundaries as a therapist. 
  • expand understanding of legal and professional frameworks impacting therapy practice. 
  • engage in open dialogue and collaborative learning with colleagues on contemporary ethical challenges.
