I will devote the energy and time to hold the chief responsibility for coordinating an inspiring, enjoyable and efficiently led 2020 Conference in Copenhagen. Will organize initiatives to make everyone feel welcome such as connect groups for new participants and others who would like to join in. Will work for a program with a range of workshops/seminars to meet the participants span of schema therapy experience.
