Reflective workshops & webinars

This page outlines the series of reflective workshops and webinars that we have designed specifically for practitioners/policy makers.

Our workshops and webinars provide an opportunity to hear about key research findings and share experiences.

Our workshops have been accompanied by the following:

  1.   An evidence-based briefing paper (designed to accompany the workshop and guide policy)

  2.   A practitioner-oriented briefing (based on the reflective sessions during the workshop)

  3.   A feedback report (participants' perceptions of the event)

Our webinars are recorded and the links are provided below.
