Bringing Society To Psychology
~~ Thurs 31st October 2013 - 6.30pm - 8.30/9pm
We are invited to visit the Youth and Community Centre of DOST
"Dost means friend in several languages. Dost Centre for Young Refugees & Migrants aims to improve the quality of life for young refugees and migrants aged 11 - 25. The Dost approach has been developed over 12 years in response to the needs of children who have arrived in the UK alone, seeking protection from violence, abuse and persecution in their home countries."
The session will include a talk entitled: 'Dost: a 360 degree community approach'
Helena Kaliniecka (Dost's Service Manager & Clinical Psychologist) and Jessica Muir (CAMHS Practitioner) and hopefully a few of the young people who go to the DOST centre will be telling us about Dost's work in the community with young refugees and migrants. They will explore the different ways that they have tried to create a relationship-based, collaborative and culturally relevant approach.
Reasons to come all the way to East Ham..
- Hear about the complexities, challenges and benefits of working in an open-access community space
- Come & learn about different ways that clinical and community settings can work together to benefit young people, staff and communuities
- Discuss how the setting and environment we are based in can aid or hinder our work
- Find out more about links we can build with other agencies and groups in your communities
- Eat tasty samosas!
And best of all, it's not at UCL! It's here... Trinity Centre, East Avenue, Manor Park, E12 6SG (less than five minutes from East Ham tube station).
This is a truly great opportunity - so please do come along. We are lucky as the centre they are using is big - so it's not limited to numbers. So why not try and bring those colleagues, commissioners or friends who might just need a dose of Community Psychology inspiration? At least give it a shot...
Thanks so much!
