The Australian Clinical Psychology Association welcomes you to the 2021 annual conference and AGM in Cairns, tropical Far North Queensland.

“Being Here Now: Harnessing the power of the therapeutic alliance and the mechanisms of what makes psychotherapy work”

Friday 5 and Saturday 6 November 2021

Riley Crystalbrook Resort
131-141 The Esplanade, Cairns, QLD 4870


The two-day conference explores the therapeutic process, relationship and factors that underpin how and why psychotherapy works. The conference will be followed by a half day workshop that will focus on developing skills to work in the 'here and now' of therapy.



Submissions are now open for poster presentations at the 2021 ACPA Conference.

As part of this upcoming ACAP 2021 Conference there will be a designated session for poster presentations. This part of the conference will provide opportunity for attendees to showcase their work and interests in progressing the science of our profession, get some feedback, stimulate interesting discussion, and maybe even spark some collaborations.

Posters may be used to present on original research, reviews of the current literature, theoretical models/proposals, and case studies that highlight an interesting, controversial, or novel aspect of assessment or treatment. Posters may report on completed research, preliminary findings of research in progress, or research plans/protocols. We encourage students who may be planning their research or in the midst of conducting their research as part of their training to submit their interest.
