Open Module - Project Future (community work and young males)
Dr Fatima Bibi and Dr Hannah Stringer, Clinical Psychologists and service leads at Project Future
Tuesday, 05 March 2019, 5.15pm to 6.15pm
Hosted by Dr Reena Vohora
Project Future is a multi award winning partnership service with Haringey Council, Mind Haringey and Barnet Enfield and Haringey NHS Mental Health Trust. We are a community psychology wellbeing project, coproduced with young men, clinical psychologists and specialist youth workers. The project works with young men aged 16-25 who have been socially excluded and often labelled as “gang-affiliated”, and “offenders”. Future is underpinned by psychological thinking, wrapping holistic wellbeing support around all the work we do. Rather than positioning young people as the problem, Future sees individuals as experts in their own lives and communities.
This seminar aims to share Project Future’s approach developing a holistic wellbeing service in which evidence based psychological interventions are delivered in adapted and accessible ways, within interactions and environments where young people feel comfortable and safe.
We hope to share examples of Project Future's learning, considering the therapeutic and social action benefits of working in this way to create constructive and transitional spaces for young people. In addition the project works at an individual, community and societal level seeking to ensure that young people's voices are genuinely heard, in order to enable perspective changing from wider systems and society.
We hope to get people to think about their own practice within mainstream services and the application of some of the principles that project Future have drawn upon.
This event is open to all health care professionals.
Places are limited. If you would like to attend, please contact Angela Fox (firstname.lastname@example.org).
