WGI Conference in Bogotá

A very succesful international conference has just concluded in Bogotá, the capital of Colombia. Over 300 delegates attended with over 80 of these from countries outside of Colombia.  From Ireland we had Gisela Oates, Patrick Coughlan and Brian Lennon.  In addition Dr. Terry Lynch was one of the keynote speakers and made a great impression with his very clear exposition of the abuse of psychiatric medication. The photograph shows the European group in Bogotá with delegates from Croatia, Spain and Ireland. Keynotes and workshops continued from Thursday to Saturday.  As usual, there was a wide range of topics covering all the applications of Choice Theory psychology.  A significant number of the presenters were from Colombia itself, a clear measure of the success of the local member organisation, Fundación Eligir.  In this conference they presented a wonderful showcase of Choice Theory and of Colombia itself, a country that is rapidly moving towards greater peace and stability.
