Irish Childhood Bereavement Network 2nd National Conference
This years conference is entitled 'Quality Support: The Way Forward Standards | Care | Research' and aims to look deeper into what quality childhood bereavement support involves for practitioners. The conference is an ideal opportunity for social workers, nurses, therapists and other professionals working with bereaved children to learn new skills, from recent evidence based research, that they can use in their own work to improve outcomes for bereaved children. It will also act as a useful overview for those who occasionally encounter bereaved children and would like to learn how to support them such as teachers, youth workers, public health nurses etc.
Speakers at this years conference include:
Sir Al Aynsley- Green - Professor Emeritus of Child Health at University College London
Liz Koole - Freelance practitioner and trainer in childhood bereavement work
Elke Barber - Author of "Is Daddy coming back in a minute?"
Dr. Elizabeth Rolls - Honorary Research Fellow, University of Gloucestershire
