Whether we like it or not, we now work in systems which are increasingly regulated, risk averse and performance-managed. As well as compromising TC values such as spontaneity, flexibility and creativity, the process is also threatening our core belief in working in democratic and inclusive ways, without fixed authoritarian hierarchies. In our ‘culture of enquiry’, authority should always be challengeable – but that is becoming harder as more top-down control is exerted on us. But, collectively, we have many answers to these difficulties – and the conference will give us all an opportunity to understand and share them.

This event, with 1, 2 and 3 day attendance options, will provide delegates with a rich programme of keynote speakers, presentations, research papers and creative/ experiential workshops all considering our key themes across health, social care, justice, residential, day and community based services and applicable to services for both children and adults.

The event follows a therapeutic community format and makes use of large and small group spaces to reflect together and draw the learning outcomes.

The conference will include:

  • plenary presentations exploring the potential of the psychosocial environment
  • being part of a temporary community with large group community meetings & small group reflective space
  • experiential workshops
  • research, concept and TC break-out sessions
  • network opportunities with colleagues from a variety of sectors
  • relaxation & social activities each evening

Who should attend?

  • practitioners of all types
  • managers
  • leaders
  • commissioners
  • policy makers and regulators for all sectors involved in the therapeutic care, support, help, treatment and intervention of both children and adults will benefit
  • We are also very keen to include students and those with lived experience of services and small bursaries are available for application.
