CONGRATULATIONS and CELEBRATIONS
On arrival at the Research Conference, LC&CTA Co Directors, Juanita and Chris (back sofa) and Senior Tutor, Tony (below left) make a Champagne toast to and celebrate our students’ research achievements.
CREATIVELY PRESENTING AT THE CONFERENCE ASSEMBLY
During the conference the Research Poster presenters are given a short time to address the entire conference assembly in order to generate interest in their findings. Our students usually develop highly creative ways of introducing their research; as these photographs, and especially the video clips below, demonstrate.
OUR STUDENTS and THEIR RESEARCH POSTERS in SITU
The Bipolar Poster was hand painted by the talented, Wesley Freeman-Smith (above right).
AROUND AND ABOUT CONFERENCE AND THE CITY OF LIVERPOOL
The students visited ‘The Cavern’ where John Lennon and the Beatles began their music careers.
Carl Gustav Jung, once the closest colleague of Freud, called Liverpool ‘The Pool of Life’ (Jung, 1927).
THE CONFERENCE DINNER and DANCE
These photographs of our students and Chris and Juanita (Co Directors) at play, demonstrate the closeness of the relationships which, we feel privileged to say, characterise the teaching and learning experience the students and tutors build together at LC&CTA.
Evanne (far right) gets into the groove to the right of Professor Mick Cooper (Strathclyde University) as he stylishly twirls Angela Couchman (bacp Conference Organiser) round the dance floor. Iain can just be seen (far left) impressing his dance partner with his innovative ‘highland’ moves.
TOO TIRED ON THE WAY HOME:
Simply worn out by all the activities during the Conference weekend, Juanita and Chris (Co Directors) and Evanne (Presenting Student) fall asleep on the fast train back to London.
