Themed reflective groups

In response to previous conference feedback, we want to ensure that delegates have time and space to reflect on the content of the keynote presentations and enter into a deeper dialogue on the topics. Therefore there will be a choice of four reflective groups, chaired by ACAT Trustees.

The reflective group process is an opportunity to explore in a more personal way how we experienced the keynote presentations and how we understand the content within our own (and others') frames of reference. This gives us a real opportunity to ensure that the Conference is dialogic, inclusive and valuing of everyone’s thoughts and views.

We expect that each group will hold interest and want to promote some sense of freedom to decide on the day to choose which group you will join and therefore we are not running a booking system. This provides more scope to respond to what resonates for you on the day, however, if you are focused on attending a specific group, we advise that you arrive at the room early to guarantee your place.
