2012 NZAC Research Conference
You are cordially invited to attend the (nearly) annual NZAC Research Conference. We missed out last year due to the inaugural Counsellor Education Conference, but we are back due to popular demand. EIT will be hosting this popular conference which will follow the format established in previous years. All attendees are asked to present an aspect of their research which is done in a friendly and collegial environment. Finished research is welcome, but so too are projects in process and the germination of ideas. Opportunities for discussion and feedback make it a rich and supportive experience. Experienced researchers and newbies are most welcome!
Invitations are open for abstracts of 200 words or less for a 20 minute presentation until 1 October 2012.
