This one-day conference brings together some of the latest international developments in research and practice with the In My Shoes computer-assisted interview and associated Apps for handheld devices. Participants will be able to hear how these can be used to help children and young people communicate about emotions and events, including both positive and adverse experiences.
Presentations will summarise some of the key aspects of development, research and validation of these approaches. Workshops will cover specific examples from practice in childcare and child protection, family courts, special educational needs, planning interventions with children and young people and applications in both physical and mental health.
The conference will be relevant for a wide range of professions working with children and young people, including practitioners, service leads and researchers who want to communicate as effectively as possible to enable children and young people to talk about their experiences and express their wishes.
