This event offers a preview of the forthcoming conference of the World Association for Person-centered and Experiential Psychotherapy & Counseling. Keith Tudor (Chair of the Organising Committee) and Brian Rodgers (Chair of the Scientific Committee) will talk about their vision for the conference, which, due to the coronavirus pandemic, was postponed from last year. They will discuss their journey and that of the Organising Committee from PCE2106 in New York, via PCE2018 in Vienna, to PCE2021 and what will be a hybrid in-person and online conference, the first in the Association’s history.
