Second annual student competition!

Hi all, 

It's time for the second annual BAPCA student competition. We have three first prizes of a year's free membership to BAPCA and three second prizes of a year's half price membership to BAPCA. The competition is open to students and trainees at any level (from level two through to PhD) who have not been BAPCA members before.

Level two students have as much chance of winning as PhD students, and last year we had winners from across the board. We are providing two questions, to allow you to focus your energy where your strengths lie.

The competition deadline is November 17th at midnight. The entries will then be judged and winners announced in January, with memberships running from February for a year.

What do you get if you win?

  • A year's free membership. This will give you four issues of the BAPCA magazine for a year, and four issues of Person-centered and experiential psychotherapy a year. It will also give you reduced entry to any BAPCA encounter days (one has run so far this year and we hope to run another in the autumn).
  • Your essay published in a special edition of our BAPCA magazine and on the BAPCA blog. 

The competition this year has two questions. Please PICK ONE! We know that some people prefer more in the ways of theory and some people prefer less, so we hope that one of these will suit most people. We are asking for 1500 words. You do not need to provide references, but if you do provide them, you just need to be consistent (if you're at an insitution that uses referencing, please feel free to follow their guide). 

Pick one:

  • The person-centered approach and issues of power in groups?
  • Trust between the client and the person-centered practitioner

Essays to [email protected] by 17th November. Please also feel free to ask any questions to the same address!
