The 10th Anniversary Keele Counselling Qualitative Research Conference:
- Conference date: Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th May, 2016
This year saw a return to the qualitative research theme, last seen in 2014. Kim Etherington spoke about combining creativity and research; Linda Finlay talked about relational aspects; Susan Hogan demonstrated some ground-breaking creative work with new mothers, and Andrew Reeves, currently chair of the BACP, issued a 'call to arms' to counsellors to engage with research. As well as these four outstanding keynotes, there was a wide range of excellent workshops on creative research methods and strategies, which were very well received by delegates. There were also paper presentations on a number of topics, including several by current and former Keele MSc students, and this year, for the first time, there was a poster competition, with the prize donated by PCCS books.

Ann Beynon & Helena Enright: The Teachers’ Story – listening to educators
The workshop was a great opportunity to focus on our experience of teachers and of being the teacher in whatever context.
The reflective activities were inter-active and included a video of a Structured Time for Self Reflection (STSR) session with a Primary School Head teacher.
