30 Years After Carl Rogers: What next?

From Thursday 23rd to Sunday, March 26th, 2017

Aspet (Haute-Garonne)

2017 will be the 30th anniversary of the death of Carl Rogers in 1987. To mark this anniversary we are organising a 4 day event that includes a large person-centred group, space for colleagues to offer workshops and a party!

We are organising this event in collaboration with ACP France and we are hoping that colleagues from the UK and further afield will join colleagues from France for this event. There will be English-French translation and the possibility of more language translation if required.

As well as the familiar large person-centred group meeting there is the opportunity for colleagues to offer a presentation or an experiential workshop with social time in the evenings and a party on Saturday night!

We are pleased to have Nada Daou from IFRDP (France) join the facilitation team along with colleagues from ACP France & Temenos.


This is a 4 day residential event from Thursday 23 to Sunday, March 26, 2017.

The event is essentially experiential and the content will be the result of a co-creation between all participants and facilitators. Each person influences the course of the workshop, by their presence in the large group, and offering or participating in the presentations and workshops.

The large group meeting occupies the greater part of the day. In the morning, there is time scheduled for presentations, workshops and small groups. Evenings are devoted to workshops or other activities proposed by the participants (see schedule below).

Your presentation & workshop proposals are welcome.

The meeting is first and foremost an experience of the other but also an experience of self in relation to others and the world. It is a meeting based on the principle of non-directivity. Each person has the opportunity to take his place, to experience his own power with respect for the other, to be heard and to hear.

This is made possible through an experience of freedom in the group. This is partly the role of facilitators,  to contribute to creating a climate of respect, trust and security. Their function is, as the name suggests, to facilitate interaction between individuals and the group process.

“I never thought of these workshops in ordinary terms, superficial or even professionals.
I think of them as potentially profound international significance.

If we discover in these intercultural groups that can not understand each other really, as people – to understand the meaning and beliefs of each other – so, I could assume that n ‘ there is not much hope for our world.

But if it proves possible to meet and discover each other as individuals, each exercise empathy, and understand both the cultural beliefs and political views of each other,

then I think our dark future can be penetrated with some rays of light, and we can reasonably hope for a better world.

Carl Rogers
