Embodied persons: drawing on wholeness and creativity

January 24th 2015 sees an initiative between Queen Margaret University and Moving Forth where they are collaborating to bring a one-day conference with-a-difference to Edinburgh – Embodied persons: drawing on wholeness and creativity in professional practice.

The day will challenge dominant perspectives of effective health and social care-giving, and explore and embrace a truly holistic and person-centred approach.

This is not a typical conference with keynote speakers, concurrent sessions etc. Instead we intend to create safe and democratic spaces where collaborative creative-reflective inquiry can be nourished. The day will be organised to maximise opportunities for participation in creative inquiry as well as time for reflection, discussion and debate.

Target Participants
Allied Health Professionals eg OTs, Physios, Podiatrists, Arts Therapists; Counsellors, Psychotherapists, Psychologists; Nurses; Health and Social Care support workers and managers; Care commissioners; NHS Scotland senior management.
