We had a very successful Humanising Care, Health & Wellbeing Conference, 21st – 22nd June 2018.
In the Centre for Qualitative Research, we have developed a philosophically driven approach to caring, health and wellbeing which involve humanising practices. These 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 fourth conference. People at the conference said:
This has been an absolute delight – been searching for this for so long and here it is
Excellent! sensing there will be shift across health care experts and researchers
Absolutely brilliant! – this is the best conference I’ve ever attended-inspiring and relevant
