UNITY THROUGH RELATIONSHIP INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE 2018

Mon, 12 Nov 2018
09:00 - 23:59

Welcome to the 5th Annual UNITY conference.  Over recent years those working in the caring professions have been bombarded with many new concepts and 'JARGON' - much of which is emerging from related professions. In the absence of clear instruction on the meaning of words, concepts, diagnosis and theories, we run the risk of making our own (possibly incorrect) interpretations of what these are. Additionally we run the risk of pathologizing normal emotional development.       Unity V (2018) will provide a forum for the coming together all who are interested in the care, protection and welfare of children and families, to discuss some of the many topic that underpin our work. We will hear from international and local experts, professionals and educators. The objectives of this 2 day conference are: (i) to provide a forum to share experience on the 'vocabulary' currently in use within social work, child & youth care (social care) and related professions; (ii)  to examine these within the context of relational practice; (iii) to examine how these are shaping the current and future focus of caring peofessions. The event is open to ALL who are involved in the provision of care, education, therapy and other related services to children, youth and families. Delegates are welcome from (but not limited to) the following profrssional groups: front-line practitioners (social work, social care, teachers, family support staff), clinicians, educators, justice professionals, mental health staff, therapists, researchers, managers, carers and students.  Hotel Accommodation:    Accommodation should be booked directly via The Bonnington Dublin Reservations Office 01-8373544 (Open Mon-Thu 9am-8pm, Fri & Sat 9am-6pm, closed Sundays) or on the Hotel Website www.bonningtondublin.com using Promo Code Unity18.
