The Center for Diversity in Counselling and Psychotherapy (CDCP) – Bangalore, was formed on 2nd June, 2010. The center was formed in collaboration between, the Principal, Sampurna Montfort College, Rev. Dr. Mathew Panathanath and the Dean, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), University of Toronto, Prof. Jane Gaskell. However the liaison between Sampurna Montfort College and OISE dates back several years.
The 1st International Conference on Counselling, Psychotherapy and Wellness (ICCP) organized in 2008 was also an outcome of this liaison. The formation of CDCP Bangalore is a reflection of the aspiration for continued cooperation to facilitate contributions to the field of Counselling and Psychotherapy.
