Process Oriented Psychology Ireland is delighted to invite you to the next IAPOP Research Conference to be held in Dublin, Ireland in May 2018.  Our political, socio-economic, cultural and world systems are facing serious challenges. This conference creates an opportunity to share our research projects, ideas, findings, questions etc., as the Process Work Community works together, bringing awareness to the challenges facing individuals, groups and communities. Process Work, with its ethos of Deep Democracy, offers a unique approach to working on ‘Wicked Problems’. And sustainable change is more attainable when we use our awareness to unfold the edge structuring these challenging situations.  For further information please visit our website at or contact us at
