TUNE IN AND UNDERSTAND

September 7 → 2:00 pm3:00 pm
Phoenix Cinema, Pickaquoy, Kirkwall

It happens so often in social work and in mental health and many other areas. The professionals say the people don’t understand, and the people say they’re not being understood. A new strategy seeks to bring everyone together to tackle problems. Initially developed for work with babies and parents, it’s now being taught to mental health clinicians, physicians, lawyers, administrative and policy professionals. It’s about tuning in, and interacting, and building relationships, and it’s called FAN (Facilitated Attuned iNteraction).

This event will also be livestreamed.

“Put simply, it is the most useful tool I have found in my 40 years of mental health work to engage a person in a way such that they feel felt, understood, heard and seen,” says Prof. Carole Norris-Shortle, University of Maryland, who is joined by her colleague Cheryl Brown from Midlothian Sure Start who is working with her to bring FAN to Scotland. “Really, all individuals could benefit from learning and applying a few simple rules derived from the FAN principles.”
