Join us for our next event

Making Sense of Psychology from a Christian Perspective

A conversation with early career Clinical Psychologist, Dr Abigail Daniels

BACiP Live Event, 7:45-9pm, Thursday 28th January 2021


We are delighted to announce our first ever BACiP online event. Over the coming months we have a series of free online events planned on Thursday evenings. The first is an interview with one of our newer members, Dr Abigail Daniels, an early career Clinical Psychologist working for Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust. Last year, Abigail posted a query to social media asking to hear from people like her, Christians living out their faith in the world of psychology. She was overwhelmed by the positive response she received. People from all over the world, including few members of BACiP, came back to her with ideas, stories and encouragement. In our first BACiP Live, we’ll be talking to Abigail about her learning from that experience, how her faith has helped her at the start of her clinical career, and the ever interesting dance of identities involved in being a psychologist and being a Christian. It promises to be a refreshing and interesting evening with plenty of opportunity for interaction. The event will take place on Zoom and be available to members to view online afterwards.

You can book into the event for free in the form below.

The final day for booking is 26th January, and you will receive log-in details and password by email before the event. We hope to see you there.

Faith in Psychotherapy?

A half-day BACiP Conference in partnership with Christian Psychological Services London

Online Event, 9am-1pm, Saturday 20th March 2021

March sees the arrival of yet another first for BACiP. Our first online conference, organised in partnership with our friends from Christian Psychological Services London (CPSL). Over the course of the morning we will be hearing from Thomas Yap, Ron Bushyager, Sandra Mtandabari, Lyndsey Ip and Martyn Baker. In online presentations and breakout room discussions, the CPSL team will share years of accumulated experience in providing psychological services to everyone, including people of faith. Their wide-raging expertise covers existential therapy in the pandemic, faith in complex systems and research on the preferences of clients and patients who are Christians (and their therapists). The main sessions will cover a subject familiar to BACiP from a less familiar viewpoint: how faith and psychotherapy can come together from a psychoanalytic perspective, illustrated with case material. The CPSL team have been reflecting on the content of this conference for some time and, in spite of Covid-related delays, we are delighted it can finally see the light of day. Do join us for a Saturday morning of deep thinking and profound reflection.

Programme available. Booking opens on Friday 29th January. Admission fees: £20 for full BACiP members and CPSL contacts; £10 for concessions; and £30 for non-members.
