The College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy warmly invites you to join us to gather together for the 26th Plenary, March 13–16, 2016 at the Sheraton Salt Lake City Hotel, in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah.

Meet Our Facilitator, Dr. Richard Morgan-Jones
Our facilitator this year will be Dr. Richard Morgan-Jones, a trained theologian, psychoanalytical psychotherapist and an Organizational consultant, offering training and supervision in all three arenas.  Dr. Morgan-Jones has worked as a chaplain, as well as support staff in various pastoral roles and in offering therapeutic services for many decades.  He works with a group relations framework in engaging with team, organizational and societal issues.  Dr. Morgan-Jones is an author of two published books on psycho/analytic psychotherapy training, and resides in the United Kingdom.  He brings a wealth of experience on group relations training using the A. K. Rice Tavistock-model.

This is a Working Conference
This is a working conference with the goal to provide frameworks and a vision for chaplains, pastors, and therapists in engaging with three levels of the social system, the individual, the organization, and society.  The design of this year’s event aims to stretch the vision of CPSP’s constitution and Chapter structure into both wider and deeper arenas of engagement. This event invites attendees to the exploration of relatedness as individuals exploring the boundary between the conscious and unconscious aspect of the mind.  Opportunities will be provided to apply new thinking in reflecting on existing experiences of professional practice. 

The Heart of our Gathering – Small Groups
The heart of the CPSP gathering is the mutual sharing of our work and our lives with each other.  Each participant is expected to bring work experiences or personal experiences from their engagement with individuals, teams and organizations to reflect upon in these groups. The small groups will work with experienced consultants.
