Humanising Caring, Health and Wellbeing Conference 2017

Humanisation SIG logo

You are welcome to join us at our Humanising Caring, Health & Wellbeing Conference, 29 – 30 June 2017. In the Centre for Qualitative Research, we have developed a philosophically driven approach to caring, health and wellbeing which involve Humanising practices. They are  based on existential understandings from lifeworld approaches and focuses on what make us feel human. Humanising practices are those that incorporate fully human knowing and support a sense of connection and wellbeing. Please click here for more information

This approach is supported by working practices which encourage connection to personal experience and research approaches which privilege subjective experience and knowing; such as phenomenology, narrative, auto-ethnography, embodied knowing and arts–based approaches.

This is our third conference; people from previous conferences have said:

A fabulous conference. I leave this day feeling nutured…., inspired …. refreshed… glad to be human

  I feel I have found my academic home, it’s a new home and I don’t know where everything is or where to put my ‘stuff’ , but it feels like home

 It all fits ! So much lovely work is happening. The threads come together and support this work/idea/way of being. Loved hearing others’ stories and work in action

 Thank-you for inviting me to participate –these are very powerful events
