On Tuesday 17th November 2020, join Opportunity Nottingham to explore psychological approaches and interventions that can support people facing Multiple Disadvantage.

To open the event, Nick Maguire, an Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of Southampton will focus on the mental health issues implicated in homelessness. His current research considers personality disorder in this cohort, and also the impact of CBT as a treatment.

John Connolly, Lead Counsellor at Westminster Homeless Health will talk about his work in psychological intervention in non-clinical settings for those facing homelessness. David Murphy from Nottingham University, will provide an overview of a recent research project which considers the impact of CBT on people facing multiple disadvantage.

There will also be a choice of two workshops during the event from the below selection:

Workshop Session One - attendees can select Workshop One or Two

Workshop One: Responding to Death – this workshop explores a study into the impact of hostel staff finding the body of a resident, and the type of support they may need afterwards

Facilitator: Josh Valoroso, Clinical Psychologist

Workshop Two: Evaluating PIE and TIC approaches – this workshop will explore approaches taken in Nottingham, and how the impact can and is being measured.

Facilitator: Anna Tickle, Clinical Psychologist and Robin Johnson, founder of the PIE concept.

Workshop Three: Staff wellbeing – a workshop exploring interventions for frontline staff facing work related stress.

Facilitator(s): Andy Reeves, Clinical Psychologist and Jo Devenish, Wellbeing Practitioner

Workshop Four: Rules, roles and responsiveness – this workshop will explore how working in a holistic and strengths-based way can empower people to fulfil their potential.
