Research & Practice Conference 

Our biannual Research & Practice Conference is a forum for professionals to share the Emotion Coaching -related research they had completed in their workplace settings. Research and practice being inextricably linked in applied settings is acknowledged.  We encourage the sharing of ongoing action based research relating to everyday practice practice as well as that reflecting project -based work.
