Overview and programme
Resilience is a concept widely applied to social work practice and to the experiences of children and families. While it makes sense to try and understand what enables better-than-expected outcomes in the face of adversity, it is important to interrogate the resilience concept and the way it is mobilised in policy and practice. This year’s Partnership Conference aims to engender critical engagement, in particular exploring the issues raised when resilience discourse focuses on the characteristics of individuals and lacks attention to organisational systems, structural inequality and social justice.
The day will hear from key speakers as well as offering interactive opportunities for discussion among delegates.
