Description

Three Conversations: Putting identity back into Social Work - Sam Newman, Director, Partners for Change

This masterclass will consider the impact of shifting social work (and other) practice away from an obsession with forms, processes and documents and towards a humanised way of working that pays attention to the identity both of the people and families who need support, and also those people working in the social and health care world. It will also consider the evidence from systems that are using the Three Conversations® that if you take a radical approach to this work, you can demonstrate significant improvements in the experience of people interacting with social and health care, demonstrable improvements in satisfaction and productivity of the workforce, and also contribute to easing the current pressure on budgets.

Sam is an experienced health and social care manager who has held a variety of senior positions in the sector. He qualified in social work and holds an MBA. Sam is passionate about supporting people to live their lives well and making sure that health and care systems place this at the heart of all that they do. For the past ten years he has provided change management support to Councils across the UK as the Director of Partners for Change, P4C.

Sam and P4C have led the development and co-design of The Three Conversations® as a new approach to health and social care – focussing on people and their lives, rather than assessment, documents and processes. More than 30 councils across the UK have worked with P4C to develop their own three conversations approach. This approach seeks to prove through a wide range of compelling evidence that The Three Conversations® is better for people and families, better for workers who become much more motivated and productive, and better for the budget.
