What does LOVE really mean to children and young people in care, and how do we make sure their daily lives are filled with it?
Moore House Group are proud to host our 2020 conference Where is the Love?, with international keynote speaker Tony Bloemendaal (Clinical Psychologist and Psychotherapist) and other special guests to be announced. Love has been a central theme of the Independent Care Review and is fundamental to our practice across the Moore House Group. We will be joined on the day by Judy Furnivall (Independent Consultant) for a hot-off-the-press update from the Love Group on the Independent Care Review.
We are now seeking proposals in keeping with our conference theme to fill the 45 minute workshop sessions.Childhood is protected space, a time of exploration, a place for joy and fun, and where we learn what it is to be human through our relationships. Children are special – they make us laugh and cry. They fill us with joy and can paralyse us with fear. We love them and this love makes them loving and lovable. Most of us continue to love our children regardless of the challenges as they grow up.
Yet not all children experience this. For a few, childhood is a time of terror and desolation. They learn that adults are dangerous, trust is a foolish fantasy and that people are objects to be used in a continuous battle for survival. For others their experiences of relationships leave them unsure that love can survive and uncertain about their own fundamental worth.
Our aim is for delegates to leave feeling inspired, and empowered with new knowledge having had the opportunity to hear current research and examples of practice with looked after children and young people that is making a real difference. All contributors will be provided with a complimentary ticket to the event (including lunch) and made to feel most welcome! Thank you, and we look forward to hearing from you.
