Family Support Groups in Diverse Settings

London WC2R 2LS, River Room (2nd floor King's Building), Strand Campus
10/05/2017 (09:30-17:00)

A one-day workshop to explore how family support groups work in different social, cultural and international settings; the ways in which they have been tailored to meet the needs of diverse groups; and what their strengths and weaknesses are in complex contexts. The workshop will have an interactive format consisting of 10-15 minute presentations and related discussions, round tables and practical exercises during which new family support techniques will be introduced and reflected upon. We are pleased to say that the workshop will include a keynote address by Dr Eia Asen, a pioneer in the field of Multi-Family Therapy.


The workshop forms part of a larger 3-year British Academy funded project that brings together researchers and health service providers from King’s College London and the Institute of Community and Public Health at Birzeit University to monitor and evaluate the adaptation, implementation and scaling up a family support group intervention in the West Bank. We have now concluded our evaluation research and are keen to connect with other practitioners, service users and academics in the field to share professional experiences, approaches and findings.
