CALL FOR PAPERS
The Second Transpersonal Research Colloquium will be held on September 15-16, 2016 at Highgate House in Northamptonshire (near London) in the United Kingdom. The TRC immediately precedes the 20th Annual Conference of the Transpersonal Psychology Section of the British Psychological Society (BPS) on September 17-18, 2016 at the same location.
The mission of TRC 2016 is to engage researchers worldwide in dialogue and training related to research methods and procedures that further the study of transpersonal, spiritual, and related topics. The theme for TRC 2016 is Research Models and Methods for Transpersonal Research. TRC 2016 will be co-sponsored by the EUROTAS Division of Transpersonal Research, Integral Transpersonal Institute, Transpersonal Consultancy, and the British Psychological Society Transpersonal Psychology Section.
The presentation format will be collaborative and egalitarian giving each participant equal time to speak. Ample time will be provided for discussions and networking with other participants and for initiating collaborations for ongoing or newly created research projects. The final TRC 2016 program will be co-constructed depending on accepted proposals.
Participation in the colloquium will be open to professional researchers with PhDs, MDs, or doctoral candidates actively engaged in research. To apply for participation, kindly send us the following:
