Making waves: Diverse conversations by the sea

Thursday 15th to Saturday 17th September 2016

The Old Ship Hotel, Brighton seafront, Sussex

Brighton prides itself on being a vibrant, diverse and inclusive city, with a reputation for welcoming people from different walks of life.

Systemic family psychotherapy has a strong tradition of respecting difference and making space for marginalised voices to be heard.

We welcome you to a conference by the sea that reflects and builds upon a willingness to embrace these themes. Here we can continue to develop our practice through creative and collaborative conversations, where new ideas can develop in the form of criticism and innovation, making waves through dialogue in our profession.

We hope to explore issues of difference and diversity in all aspects of our work. We want to embrace the multiple meanings and numerous voices in our working contexts, including the tensions and the discomforts. We hope to recognise and affirm the specificity and individuality of families and of family therapists.
We will be welcoming workshop submissions that reflect these themes, in particular:

  • addressing diversity
  • hearing marginalised voices
  • challenging established practices and institutions

Through our divergent thinking, we hope to make waves – waves that can both comfort and reassure, challenge and provoke.

Please consider submitting a 1.5 hour workshop proposal for Friday or Saturday
