A one-day, innovative seminar for frontline practitioners and managers.

About this Event

Ag Eisteacht, SHEP and Dr Nicola' O Sullivan are collaborating to host a one-day, innovative seminar for frontline practitioners and managers.

The seminar marks the second step of a new initiative exploring focused ways of reconnecting with practice using a series of reflective practice models. It also creates a space for peer support and care of oneself.

Through a series of stimulating presentations and workshops, this interactive seminar will focus on enabling practitioners from all disciplines to develop and sustain reflective practice.

In the afternoon, there will be a programme of breakout sessions/workshops, which can be booked in advance.

For those who are interested, there will also be a series of follow-up, customised opportunities to explore how we can sustain and support ourselves in practice.

Ag Eisteacht, SHEP and Dr Nicola O' Sullivan look forward to welcoming you to what will be a stimulating and inspiring exploration of what’s at the heart of frontline practice while considering the physical, psychological, emotional and relational impacts of frontline work in complex systems.

Who is this seminar for?
