Pivotal Summer Shorts 4 – Pivotal Conversations – Children, Mental Health & Behaviour – PP82

The topic of the week is Pivotal Summer Shorts 4 – Pivotal Conversations – Children, Mental Health & Behaviour.

This is the forth episode based on the one-day ‘Pivotal Conversations’ conference which took place at Bridgend College on Wednesday 15th July on the theme of Children, Mental Health & Behaviour.

Colleagues from many areas including The Police, Social Services and Education joined the conversation and over the summer we are presenting some audio clips from the event so everyone can benefit from the conversations which took place.

sunIn this ‘Pivotal Summer Short’, we take you inside another of the discussion sessions from the conference. This time it’s a session led by John Reece, who chooses to focus on sharing positive success stories. Colleagues from a wide variety of settings talk about aspects of their work which often get overlooked – the things which have gone really well.

We hope that hearing from the first Pivotal Conversations conference will inspire you to get involved with the forthcoming events which will take place in the new academic year 2015-16.
