Proceedings of UK HCI Workshop on “People, Computers, and Psychotherapy”

In September, we – along with colleagues from across the UK – organised a workshop at the UK HCI 2012 conference. This workshop was entitled “People, Computers & Psychotherapy” and was attended by an interesting group of people with expertise from clinical psychology, counselling services, and HCI. It was a very interesting event – which we hope will lead to collaboration on this very timely and important topic. The proceedings of this workshop have now been published in the BCS repository here:
