About this event

Learning objectives:

An opportunity to be part of an active seminar to question and think about what the overused term ‘ the new normal’ means and how to navigate the fantasies and realities of this.

How to navigate conspiracy and extreme thoughts in an unlocked world

Programme:

10.00 Welcome and introductions.

10.10 - 10.30 JOHN DIAMOND (The Mulberry Bush): 'Back To The Future - Therapeutic Community Principles Revisited' - The last year has been one of social upheaval. In this presentation I will explore the development of the Therapeutic Community (TC) which arose out of WW2 and offer a reappraisal of why TC principles are so relevant in re-orientating and defining our work with children and young people.

10.30 - 11.00 Small group discussion and feedback

11.00 - 11.20 JANE HERD (Orb8) : 'The End of Objectification- The Re-Emergence of Knowing’ -  Looking to move away from a pursuance of the concrete and measurable to the pursuit of the wholistic whether that be embodied in the baking of banana bread or mass movements for social change.

11.20 - 11.50 Small group discussion and feedback

11.50 - 12.00 Short Break

12.00 - 12.20 MARYA HEMMINGS (The Mulberry Bush): Were We Ever Normal? - What Do You Do With What You Have Learnt? - Conspiracy theories are not new in any community and global ones after a major event are almost compulsory, but why do they happen and what can they be for? This presentation will look at how conspiracy theories may help us deal with the reality that ‘normal’ is constantly being reinvented and that they may help us come to terms with that version of ‘normal’ never coming back.

12.20 - 13.00 Plenary discussion - where do we go from here?
