The Inaugural IICP Internal Research Conference took place on Monday the 28th April 2014. Marcella Finnerty chaired the event and research was presented by past BA students Mark O’Mahony, Dermot O’Neill and Antonia Colon Timlin. Poster presentations of their research were presented by Orla Killeen and Barbara Egan.

The keynote address was given by Professor John McLeod. John McLeod is Emeritus Professor of Counselling at the University of Abertay Dundee. He is committed to promoting the relevance of research as a means of informing therapy practice and improving the quality of services that are available to clients.

The inaugural conference was a great success, with attendees commending the excellent standard of research and interesting presentations. IICP would like to thank all the attendees, presenters and staff who made it possible. We look forward to next year’s conference already!
