United Against Welfare Cuts, And Reform: Report From The Lobby of The BPS Conference


In November, Swan was heavily involved in hosting a one day conference on Mental Health and Welfare Reform, highlighting the psycho-compulsion characteristics of the current UK welfare system.  As part of a continued and growing protest against the role of professional health bodies in this system, campaigners from across Merseyside and even as far afield as London gathered outside the annual BPS Clinical Psychology Conference at the Hilton Hotel, Liverpool on Wednesday 18th January.

The British Psychological Society (BPS) is the professional body for UK psychologists and has been working with the government on aspects of its welfare reform programme. Please find attached the full report, and do share with your colleagues.
