Invitation to Observation in Health and Social Care book launch

Event overview

You are cordially invited the Tavistock and Portman and Jessica Kingsley Publisher’s book launch of: Observation in Health and Social Care: Applications for Learning, Research and Practice with Children and Adults.

Monday 4 December, 6-8pm Tavistock Centre

Edited by Lucille Allain, Helen Hingley-Jones and our own Clare Parkinson, this book explores new approaches to therapeutic observation in health and social care. This multidisciplinary book discusses and analyses its uses in a range of practical contexts with children, families and adults.

With contributions from Stephen Briggs, Pat Cartney, Andrew Cooper, Minna Daum, Claire Kent, Duncan McLean and Graham Music, the book draws on psychoanalytic ideas and theories of human development as a base for professional learning. The experienced editors and authors offer theoretically informed models to teach observation skills in professional programmes, helping their readers prepare for successful intervention in any setting.

Hosted at the Tavistock Centre, this is the perfect opportunity to network with students, alumni, colleagues and peers in the field with an interest in this area of research and practice.

Refreshments will be provided on the night. We look forward to meeting you  then.
