Come along to read, share and even write a poem!

In this workshop Dr Ariane Critchley from Edinburgh Napier University and Dr Autumn Roesch-Marsh from the University of Edinburgh will work with practitioners to explore poetry to enhancing reflection, self-compassion, and creativity within social work practice.  They will share some ideas about the uses of poetry and some examples of poetry that illuminates challenges for practice.  

There will be an opportunity to read poems, share poems and even write a poem (if you fancy it).  This workshop will be held virtually on our MS Teams platform. Participants are asked to bring with them a poem that they have found helpful or inspiring over the years. 

Limited places so book early to avoid disappointment!
