On behalf of our directors, my colleagues and management of the Ife Centre for Psychological Studies/Services, I welcome you in the precious name of Jesus Christ to the 2013 Annual Benchmark Conference holding from 7th to 9th March 2013.

This year's theme is on the theme: PSYCHOTHERAPY; Unity in Diversity. Again I say thank you all for believing in us. God will remember your labour of love.
