Led by a specialist art-based medical education and therapeutic workshops, the session will address attendees’ needs for a refreshing, stimulating and engaging experience at the Art Gallery of Ontario.

Relational Practice: An Experiential and Reflective Workshop (Max 30 people)

Through reflective discussion and experiential exercises, this workshop will encourage delegates to explore how to grow close, connected, emotionally containing relationships on the neonatal unit, from two perspectives. First we will consider the psychological needs of parents and how we can support these through our interactions and communication with families. Second we will consider the psychological needs of staff: neonatal FiCare can feel hard and emotionally demanding. We will explore ways staff can sustain themselves in this work.

Facilitated by: Davy Evans (Lead Psychologist | West Midlands Neonatal Operational Delivery Network)
