Focusing the appreciative lens during this time of flux - Webinar Series PART 2

27 May 2020 WEBINAR

During these clarifying times where people have been asked to physically distance, and there are increased demands on the health and social care sectors to respond to COVID-19, the West Midlands Academic Health Science Network (WMAHSN) offers health and social care workers an opportunity to socially connect through a four week webinar series focusing on the use of Appreciative Inquiry. (AI)

 

The series will look to provide participants with an opportunity to:

• Understand Appreciative Inquiry and how it can be used to co-create new ways of working in both health and social care sectors

• Explore tools, techniques and practices that can be used to support existing practice

• Hear from topical experts who are already applying Appreciative Inquiry to both their professional and personal lives

• Connect socially in the development of a community of discovery that can continue to share learning

• Inquire into appreciative conversations and apply questions and reframes to enable resiliency growth
