Our aim in AFT's 2013 conference is to connect, to build networks and to explore the stories of resistance we hear within and tell about our professional lives. How do we endure our experiences? How do we adapt or influence? How do we celebrate and support areas of fourishing systemic practice? What inspires and excites us? What makes us laugh?
The draft programme is being finalised and will include approaches and techniques that can be used in different contexts, in the public, private and voluntary sectors.
Please check out the workshop programme - You can book for the Thursday, Friday or Saturday as separate days. On Thursday we have our AFT AGM in the afternoon. We are pleased that the Cockburn Family have agreed to be our Ambassadors and will talk to us in the afternoon about their story -Patrick Cockburn was on assignment for 'The Independent' when his 19-year-old son was diagnosed with schizophrenia. They will describe the long and difficult road back from the brink.
On Friday, we have workshops by Janet Reibstein and Hannah Sherbersky, Carmel Flaskas, Liz Day, Taiwo Afuape, John Burnham and Sharon Bond, Marcus Averbeck, Reenee Singh, Umberta Telfener, as well as paper presentations. Kate Daniels will open the conference with a dramatic presentation to set the context of Hard Times.
On Saturday, we have workshops by Peter Fraenkel, Sandra Baum et al, Dawn Walker, Valeira Ugazio, Ged Smith, Paula Boston and Dave Green, Matthew Selman, Gary Robinson et al, Gail Simon, Colm O'Keefe and Heleni Andreadi.
See you there!
