The Delegates discussed different ideas about the future work of the Network. What do we need most? How can we support the Person-Centred Approach? How can we support each other? The 3rd WCP (World Conference on Psychotherapy) in Vienna in the year 2002, which also is the year to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Carl Rogers) is regarded as a focus for presenting the approach. There will be a day or half a day during the WCP for this.
