Find out how good record keeping can provide an opportunity for healing as an adult, with Dr Lisa Cherry.

Tickets cost: £50 for non-members

Lisa Cherry

Good record keeping provides an opportunity for healing for the adult that the child will become.

When they come to read their records, what has been written can support them to make meaning of the events that happened in childhood.

In this session we will explore this approach by bringing together personal, academic and professional experiences and skills in a safe, reflective space.

What will I take away from this Live Classroom?

  • A deeper theoretical understanding of the impact of reading files as an adult
  • A deeper embodied understanding of the impact of reading files as an adult
  • An understanding of a trauma informed approach to record keeping
  • The chance to consider and embrace record keeping as having the potential for intergenerational and ancestral healing

This Live Classroom is for you if you are responsible for record keeping for children, or you want the space to reflect and make sense of record keeping.


What people have said about our Live Classrooms

“This was a great opportunity to reflect on how language, phrasing and omissions in our records can impact the lives of people who use our services. 

“Looking through a trauma lens at what and how we record has reinforced for me how vital it is to ensure we get it right from the beginning of our careers.” Training participant.


Please bring along

Pens, paper and curiosity.
