AusAPT 2023 Conference: From Shadows to Showtime

September 1, 2023 @ 9:00 am September 2, 2023 @ 3:30 pm Australia/Brisbane

Program and Presenters

The Australian Association for Psychological Type Inc is pleased to be returning to in-person conferencing this year.

Our 2023 conference, in subtropical Brisbane, will comprise two days of keynote and concurrent sessions over Friday and Saturday, 1–2 September.

Our conference program spans a diverse range of sessions from Australian and international presenters, with new faces alongside familiar names from across the wide world of psychological type. As our keynote speakers we’re honoured to present psychologist and author Dr Angelina Bennet from the UK and the world-renowned Australian type luminary Mary McGuiness.

The conference theme, From Shadows to Showtime, reflects our emergence from the shadows of pandemic back into the spotlight on stage. ‘Shadows’ also commemorates the centenary of publication, in English translation, of CG Jung’s Psychological Types, with Jungian topics featuring in our program. And ‘Showtime’ also acknowledges our conference venue in the midst of Brisbane’s historic showgrounds.
