OFFICIAL CONVENTION PROGRAMME PAGE
FAILTE AR AIS CHUIG CACH!
As chairperson of WGII, it is my sincere pleasure to welcome you to our WGII Convention 2021. It is our twentieth Convention and is special for other reasons too. Because COVID put us online this year, we have been able to put together a programme of international presenters, which gives you access to some of the best thinkers and practitioners at the cutting edge of Choice Theory and Reality Therapy today.
When our ability to meet our needs, especially our love and belonging need, has been so compromised by the public health measures required to combat COVID, we can see more clearly than ever the power of Choice Theory in helping us to minimise the frustration of important quality world pictures, and in helping us use our creative system to find new and effective ways to meet our needs. This we have done in putting together our Convention this year, and we look forward to welcoming you when you join us on Saturday.
This page is reserved for all convention registrants, those who were present at the convention and those who have joined us afterwards.
