Heart of Frontline Practice, a collaborative initiative with Ag Eisteacht, Dr Nicola O’ Sullivan and the Social and Health Education Project (SHEP), continues, with a second national seminar on Tuesday 25th May 2021.
‘Reconnecting with the Heart of Frontline Practice: Vulnerability, humility and compassion at the frontline’ is a one-day virtual seminar to provide a safe and nourishing space for frontline practitioners to reflect on the impact of their work.
This event is open to all. It is open to all frontline practitioners working in public, private, or community roles in healthcare, social care, education, and the justice sector.
The aim of the seminar is to create a safe space and time for you to gather with other practitioners as a community to reflect on the values and sense of mission and purpose that drew you to your work in the first place, and how you can reconnect with this and keep motivated and well.
There will be a series of stimulating presentations given throughout the day by speakers including:
- Dr Tim Dartington, a former researcher at the Tavistock Institute and author of the book, “Managing Vulnerability: The Underlying Dynamics of Systems of Care.”
- Dr Aisling McMahon, a clinical psychologist, integrative psychotherapist and associate professor at DCU.
- Dr Kate Lucre, compassion focused therapist and supervisor.
The cost of this one-day event is €50 and certificates will be available for all attendees.
Places are limited so bookings will be taken on a first come, first served basis. To secure your place, please see the Eventbrite link here.
This is the second in a series of collaborative initiatives by the Heart of Frontline Practice collaborative group to raise awareness of the perception and realities of frontline practice. Our focus is on enabling practitioners from all disciplines to develop and sustain reflective practice.
We look forward to welcoming you into this nourishing and inspiring online space.
