Places for this workshop are now full and we are unable to take further booking requests.

People strive to ensure that all children and young people live fulfilling lives and enjoy their childhood. However, evidence increasingly shows that a substantial number of children and young people are struggling with problems such as anxiety, depression, self-harm, eating disorders and psychosis.

Join this workshop where some of the social determinants impacting on children and young people’s life chances, and the impact on their current health and future wellbeing will be considered. You will be guided through an exploration of social work values as aligned to anti-racist and anti-oppressive practice. Consideration will also be given to the complexity of structural, contextual, and systemic factors impacting on children and young people’s wellbeing.

This session will be interactive, enabling you to have an increased awareness of the important links between social context, social connection, wellbeing, and a practitioner’s use of self as a vital cornerstone of the helping endeavour.
