Annual Section Conference
BPS Transpersonal Psychology Section 17th Annual Conference
The BPS Transpersonal Section will be holding its seventeenth Annual Conference on Friday 20 to Sunday 22 September 2013 at Cober Hill, Cloughton, near Scarborough, in North Yorkshire.
Details of the venue can be found at: http://www.coberhill.co.uk
Papers may be on any aspect of transpersonal psychology (from theoretical to empirical, practice-based to original research). Non-members are welcome to submit papers for presentation at the conference although priority will be given to section members. The usual time allocated for each paper, including discussion, will be 45 minutes (up to 90 minutes for workshops or symposia). Speakers should aim to make papers readily understandable to a non-specialist audience and they should not simply read aloud an article intended for publication.
The deadline for the receipt of all submissions is Friday July 12, 2013. Submissions received after this date will be considered only in exceptional circumstances. Submitters will be notified of the outcome by August 1. Abstracts of all accepted submissions other than workshops will be included in the convention booklet, provided that they are received before the deadline.

All submissions must be submitted electronically using the attached submission form.

Transpersonal Psychology addresses the spiritual nature of humankind. Unlike religion and theology, its interest centres on the mind and behaviour; hence it is a branch of Psychology. All the major spiritual and mystical traditions of the world incorporate teachings about the nature of mind and promote behavioural practices intended - amongst other goals - to bring about psychological transformations. Transpersonal psychology addresses these teachings and practices, researching their value and evaluating their relationships to ideas promulgated in Psychology. In essence Transpersonal Psychology seeks to integrate non-scientific spiritual insights with observations and models associated with the rigorous methodological approach of psychological science.
