Three Cork organisations with shared values and a common interest in frontline practitioner care and development are holding a one-day, innovative seminar to open a conversation about the perception and realities of frontline practice.

Ag Eisteacht, Caidreamh Family & Practitioner Assessment & Therapeutic Services and SHEP (Social and Health Education Project) are holding ‘Reconnecting with the heart of frontline practice’ on Thursday 21st May 2020 from 9 am-4 pm at Northridge House, Castle Road, Blackrock, Cork.

The event is the first of a series of collaborative initiatives by the group exploring focused ways of supporting frontline workers.

It is open to all frontline practitioners and managers working in health, education, social care and justice sector roles in public, private or community organisations.

The aim of the seminar is to create a safe space and time for frontline practitioners to gather together as a community to reflect on the values and sense of mission and purpose that drew them to their work in the first place and how they can reconnect with this and keep motivated and well.

The morning session will include a series of inspirational talks including a keynote speech by Dr Caroline Elton, Chartered Psychologist and author of ‘Also Human – The Inner Lives of Doctors.’

In the afternoon, there will be a choice of four experiential workshops.

The fee for this one-day seminar is €50 including light refreshments and lunch. Places are limited and booking is via Eventbrite.
