dec012A professional meeting: “Days of Leon Lojk” will be organised for the first time this year. We hope that it will be held in October each year in order to facilitate continuous professional development for all those who use Dr. William Glasser’s ideas in their professional practice all over Europe.

This meeting is also a tribute to Leon Lojk – Slovenian psychologist and psychotherapist. He was the man who enabled recognition of Reality Therapy in Europe as a psychotherapeutic modality. He was also the first President of European Association for Reality Therapy and a founder of European Institute for Reality Therapy – our tacher and friend.

The first “Days of Leon Lojk” will be held on October 21st – 23rd, 2016 at Kompas hotel in Bled, Slovenia. We expect a big interest. Registration and entrance should be free of charge.

The WGI-UK's new executive of Moira Oliver, Ruth Bradbrook, Geraldine Rowe and John Brickell will now be looking to bring new ewnergy to the Institute, and are looking at ways to attract new members and workshop participants.

Although Adrian Gorman had stepped down from any Executive role within the WGI-UK, he has agreed to continue to help with the website and so we have a brand new look (see image left) and a new website address which is www.wgi-uk.org
