BIAPT 2018 Annual Conference

The Practical Theologian as Reflective Practitioner

The next BIAPT annual conference will be held from Tuesday 10 to Thursday 12 July 2018 at the University of Warwick.

Speakers booked so far: Dr Clare Watkins, University of Roehampton


In the many contexts of practical theology, the challenges of becoming and working as a reflective practitioner are many. Indeed, it may sometimes appear that practical theology requires the making of bricks without straw. Our theme for 2018 recognises that around Britain and Ireland and beyond there are many excellent examples of reflective practice that can help us tackle this challenge. In particular, we invite conference delegates to engage with the following two sets of questions:

These questions are close to the heart of practical theology. Practice, reflexivity, integration and methodology are all pertinent here. Contributions that exemplify or analyse or do both are welcome - show and/or tell!

Further details of the 2018 conference will be made available in January 2018.
