‘Reconnecting with the heart of frontline practice’ Seminar
Three Cork organisations with shared values and a common interest in frontline practitioner care and development are holding a one-day, innovative seminar to open a conversation about the perception and realities of frontline practice.
Ag Eisteacht, Caidreamh Family & Practitioner Assessment & Therapeutic Services and SHEP (Social and Health Education Project) invite you to ‘Reconnecting with the heart of frontline practice’.
Date: Thursday 21st May 2020 from 9am-4pm
Venue: Northridge House, Castle Road, Blackrock, Cork
Fee: €50 including light refreshments and lunch
Who is this for? All frontline practitioners and managers working in health, education, social care and justice sector roles in public, private or community organisations.
Why attend? This seminar offers an opportunity for self-awareness, peer support and self-compassion, exploring different reflective practice models. The hope is that attendees will come away feeling nurtured, motivated and reconnected with the heart of their work.
The morning session will include a series of inspirational talks including a keynote speech by Dr Caroline Elton, Chartered Psychologist and author, on ‘Also Human – The Inner Lives of Frontline Practitioners’ based on her best-selling book, ‘Also Human – The Inner Lives of Doctors.’
In the afternoon, there will be a choice of four experiential workshops.
Take time and space away from your routine practice to reflect on your work, its challenges and motivations and explore what you can do to sustain yourself and keep well while supporting others.
Places are limited to 70 people so if you are interested in attending, please book a place as soon as possible via Eventbrite. For further information contact Ag Eisteacht on 021 4536556 or email Susan on firstname.lastname@example.org.
