Dear Friends and Colleagues,
We want you to be among the first to know about an exciting event - a symposium in YEAR 2002 to honor Carl R. Rogers' 100th birthday!
(Sept 3, 2001)
Honoring 100 Years of Carl R. Rogers:
His Life, Our Work, A Global Vision!
HOSTED BY: Saybrook Graduate School
DATES: July 25th (Thursday) through July
28th (Sunday) 2002.
(July 24th, Wednesday, will be a pre-conference day for person-centered trainings or day-long institutes)
PLACE: University of California, San Diego (UCSD),
La Jolla, California
(Room and meals on campus are affordable. Participants can choose to make their own off-site hotel reservations)
Join us! This is an exciting first. This is an invitation to celebrate, experience personal enrichment, and generate a personal and social agenda for the future!
We envision an international gathering where participants will have the opportunity to honor Carl by sharing their expertise in the many fields he influenced: psychotherapy, education, pastoral counseling, para-professional counseling, conflict resolution, organizational development, community programs, cross-cultural work, politics, and peace making.
An "Open Space" format will allow presentations, experiential groups, interactive groups, theoretical discussions, counseling demonstrations, person-centered group processes and reports from around the world about hands-on projects that have had community impact.
We believe the kind of honoring that Carl would want is one that demonstrates the way his research, philosophy, and values have been furthered to help people empower themselves in various fields of endeavor.
THE PURPOSE OF THE SYMPOSIUM
. To honor Carl and his work;
. To reconnect with friends and colleagues
. To revitalize and further creative uses of the person-centered approach;
