How to Avoid Climate Breakdown by New Internationalist

How to Avoid Climate Breakdown by New Internationalist

Grassroots organisations like Extinction Rebellion have done a fantastic job of getting the climate emergency into the public consciousness, and with recent polls showing a surge in concern about climate change in the UK, there’s another, urgent piece of work that needs to done: educating people as to where the real answers to this crisis might lie. In the May-June 2019 issue of New Internationalist, we told a story about the ideas and actions – social, economic and political – that can get us out of this mess and preserve a habitable planet. In it, we make the case for ‘conditional optimism’. We believe we can still avoid the worst of climate change because we see the tools and movements emerging to help us tackle it and bring about the system change that’s needed.

So join us to discuss the genuine, transformative solutions to climate change as our panel consider the scale of change that’s needed, what has not worked and why, and how we can move from ideas to action.

Speakers include:

Alice Bell - 10:10

Hazel Healy - New Internationalist

Difficult, Disturbing & Dangerous Behaviour - Special Event

Dr Iain Bourne has been delivering this unique course for many years and is well known and respected in the social care field. 

His background is in forensic mental health, which he brings to the training experience. The training style used on the course is like ‘fringe theatre ’ and highly impactful!

The aim of this day is to take participants on a fascinating and practical journey through the world of violence and danger. The training unfolds through a series of critical incidents that are narrated and dramatised before the group, bringing the material to life and allowing the participants to consider in detail the point of crisis and the skills needed to achieve a successful resolution. 

It is vivid, even scary in places. We think you will get a lot out of this day!

"In the World of the Body” - Processwork’s approach to working with symptoms and illness

Illness and body symptoms often wreak havoc on our plans, and its natural to do everything we can to minimise and get rid of them. We may also have a sense of some value that they bring us. Processwork explores this in depth, based on the understanding that there is a flow of life and wisdom behind these experiences. By unfolding each unique experience with specific and precise awareness methods, we can discover aspects of our deeper selves that we have forgotten or marginalised, and find their meaning in relation to our individual and community life.

Places are limited so early booking is recommended

This course is for Psychotherapists, Psychoanalysts, Social Workers, Counselors, MFT’s, MD’s, Nurses, Creative Arts Therapists, Masters and Doctoral students and interns in mental health and the healing arts and sciences.

About AEDP: Healing-oriented and attachment-based, AEDP’s practice translates current neuroscience and developmental research into moment-to-moment clinical practice. Simultaneously experiential and relational in its in-depth emotional explorations, AEDP’s interventions are deeply rooted in the dynamics of the transformational process that emerges in environments where the individual feels safe and known.

About Essential Skills (ES1): AEDP Essential Skills course will provide practical skills for the application of AEDP as well as a thorough immersion in the theory underlying the practice. Our aim is to teach, in both left-brained and right-brained ways, different types of clinical interventions so that participants will emerge with both an understanding and a felt sense of how to “do” AEDP. Each day’s teaching will include didactic presentations of theory along with video of actual sessions conducted by AEDP Faculty followed by small group experiential exercises.

Central Conference Consultants - Creating Dementia Friendly Services

With increasing life expectancy, the number of older people with dementia is set to rise. Many older people with dementia find themselves enjoying a poor quality of life over which they have no influence. Typically, people with dementia experience increasing isolation, barriers to involvement in the wider community, and increased reliance on other people. Those from Minority Ethnic, Gypsy and Traveller communities experience an even greater dislocation as their clearest memories reflect their early culture and life experiences, but their surroundings do not.

How can this trajectory be altered in a positive way, which goes beyond ‘dementia awareness’?

All organisations which work with older people, their families and carers have the ability to turn their service from dementia-insensitive to dementia-friendly. Creating dementia-friendly services will share research and practice based findings, and the experiences of initiatives which have taken a fresh approach to dementia.
