PhototherapyEurope in Prisons and Elsewhere (PIPAE) Conference
London, 28th - 30th October 2014
We are delighted to welcome you to the PHOTOTHERAPYEUROPE in Prisons and Elsewhere (PIPAE) Symposium & Conference, to be held in London, UK, 28th-30th October 2014. The symposium and its conference are also dissemination events for the EU funded Grundtvig project Phototherapy in Prisons.
This project aims to develop and to disseminate the use of phototherapy to address the emotional learning of prisoners through the use of phototherapy. Phototherapy involves making use of the emotional-communication qualities of photographs and people's interactions with them. The project has brought together many professionals from the partner countries of Finland, Greece, Italy, Malta, Romania, and UK, who will be taking part in the symposium and conference.
The project and symposium are a further development of the EU funded Grundtvig Lifelong Learning Project, PHOTOTHERAPYEUROPE.
The PIPAE symposium will continue the tradition and present the latest know-how in the field of phototherapy and the experiences from the workshops, seminars and forums carried out during the project.
PIPAE will present cutting edge developments in the field of phototherapy, with particular reference to working in prisons that have arisen from this project. Besides the presentations from the project partners, abstracts are welcomed from other potential presenters working elsewhere developing phototherapy and which may have relevance for the future development of phototherapy in prisons, which we will continue to update on our PHOTOTHERAPYEUROPE in Prisons website.
We look forward to your contribution and participation and we hope that the symposium will offer a forum for stimulating discussions and networking.
