Making Research Count events at York in early 2013
Making Research Count is a national collaborative research dissemination initiative which holds regular seminars for social workers across the country. It is organised regionally in partnership with local authorities and other employers.
Making Research Count at York has an engaging series of seminars with topics across children’s and adults’ services. Two seminars coming up early in 2013 still have a limited number of places available:
On Wednesday 23rd January from 2.00 to 4.15 pm Michael Preston-Shoot will discuss his study Self-neglect: the challenges for adult safeguarding in York. The seminar will present and discuss the findings from the research. It will invite participants to review two serious case reviews where self neglect was a major feature, to reflect on their own experience of working with adults who self neglect and to consider the current proposals for reform of adult safeguarding legislation. The format will contain presentation, case discussion in small groups, and plenary dialogue. More information is available on the Making Research Count events page.
In early February I am hosting a visit from some researchers from Rosklide University in Denmark. Making Research Count at York have organised a half-day seminar to allow interested people to hear more about their research. Additionally, I will be talking about the Connecting People study and David Morris will be talking about the Connected Communities project led by the Royal Society for the Arts. The seminar, Community in Focus: Social Work Making Connections, will be held in York from 9.30 am to 2.00 pm on Friday 8th February. More information is available on the Making Research Count events page including booking details.
There are free places available at both seminars for Making Research Count members in the York region. However, they are also open to anyone to attend for a small fee.
