Event description

Description

Some 15 years ago, Dr Thom Garfat explained that a relational approach is defined by, ‘the presence of the necessary clarity, boundaries and relationship-based expectations that provide containment while promoting empowerment and growth.’

The Gateway Organisation, in conjunction with TransformAction International, Empower Ireland, CYC-Net & The CYC-Net Press, are delighted to host the 4th annual ‘Unity Through Relationship’ International Conference. As usual this will be an inclusive learning & development event building and strengthening connections, relationships and interdisciplinary working.

The theoretical basis for effective child and youth care is the creation and maintenance of the therapeutic relationship from within the life space of the client. All other intervention strategies and theoretical applications are secondary to the creation and maintenance of this vital element (Jack Phelan).

Programme: An effective alliance with the children, youth, families and communities we work with is essential if we are to be of any assistance to them. At the foundation of this is an understanding of key principles such as making connections, understanding context and really caring. Unity2017 brings together both International and home grown experts in the field of relational practice. Currently confirmed are:
