2009 Human Givens Conference
The theme of this year's HGI conference, which takes place on the weekend of 9th - 10th May at Sunningdale in Berkshire, is "How people learn, and why - the human givens perspective". The speakers will explore this theme from a number of angles. The planned topics include:
- The REM state, caetextia and the development of self-concept
- Turning ‘special measures’ schools around: The links between psychotherapy and education
- What prevents learning: how mental models stop us thinking clearly
- Putting caetextia into context: practical applications of the caetextia theory
- How to educate communities
- Teams, leadership and the human givens
- Practical skills that help children learn
- Pattern-matching, learning and the REM state
- HG Coaching: Problem solving and creativity at work
- The central role of metaphor – stories, humour and sayings
- Verbal judo: Containing potentially violent confrontations with young people
- Update on research into the efficacy of the human givens approach.
This year's Guest Speaker is John Seddon who will be talking on: 'Systems and people: making organisations more effective - why cultural change is free'. And we will also hear from a variety of human givens (HG) practitioners who will present a selection of their interesting case histories.
The cost is £275.00 per delegate which includes attendance at both days with lunch, a Saturday evening dinner, tea/coffee at each break and conference materials. (There is accommodation available at Sunningdale Park which can be booked separately.)
We look forward to seeing you there!
