Description: 

From November 14-17, 2008, at the Cape Town International Convention Center, up to 1,500 women's rights leaders and activists from around the world will converge on Cape Town, South Africa at the 11th AWID International Forum to discuss the power of movements.

What is AWID?
The Association for Women's Rights in Development is an international membership organisation that works to strengthen the voice, impact and influence of women's rights advocates, organizations and movements internationally to effectively advance the rights of women.

What is the Forum?
The International Forum on Women's Rights and Development is both a conference and a call to action. The largest recurring event of its kind, the AWID Forum brings together women's rights leaders and activists from around the world every three years to strategize, network, celebrate, and learn in a highly charged atmosphere that fosters deep discussions and sustained personal and professional growth.

Delegates to the Forum participate in four days of plenary speeches, interactive sessions, workshops, debates, and creative sessions geared to powerful thinking on gender equality and women's human rights. Delegates also participate in informal caucuses, gala events, cultural activities, and social and political events geared to global and regional networking and alliance-building.

Delegates who participate fully in the Forum not only empower themselves with new tools and resources, but they also, collectively, re-politicize the gender and development community, strengthen alliances between women, and engage in work and thinking that is truly transformative rather than simply palliative.

Who can participate?
Participation in the AWID Forum is open to anyone who works or has an interest in women's rights, international development, and social justice. AWID particularly welcomes women and men from the Global South, young women, and marginalized groups that have had difficulty getting their agenda heard on a global stage.

What can I expect from the Forum?
You can expect to be enlightened, provoked and inspired by an exceptional group of thoughtful, forward-looking and fiercely committed women and men. You can expect to move beyond simply talking to getting involved in global action plans and campaigns that will emerge out of the Forum, but will last well beyond it. You can expect to work hard and gain an abundance of new skills, new knowledge, new colleagues, and new ideas for the long road ahead. You can expect to be welcomed, nurtured, fortified and challenged by a group of like-minded activists, academics and practitioners. And finally, you can expect to have more fun than you thought was possible at a conference!

Description: 

The Scientific and Organization Committee cordially invites you to attend and register for the third International Conference on Violence in the Health Sector "Linking local initiatives with Global Learning".Work related aggression and violence within the health and social services sector is a major problem which diminishes the quality of working life for staff, compromises organizational effectiveness and ultimately impacts negatively on the provision and quality of care.  These problems pervade both service settings and occupational groups.Considerable attention and advancements in addressing this problem have been achieved from service and organizational perspectives nationally and internationally.  Following two successful conferences in 2008 and 2010 in Amsterdam, the 3rd International Conference on Violence in the Health Sector, will take place in Vancouver, Canada, from October 24-26 2012.  In addition to raising awareness the 2012 conference will provide a platform to share international developments, with a particular emphasis on best practice research and initiatives to effectively respond to the problem.

From Daniel J. Siegel, MD, author of The Mindful Brain

“Voice Therapy offers a powerful mode of transformation that can free us from the prisons of the past. It provides us with a banquet of insights into the nature of our inner lives and emotional relationships. Bravo!”

Voice Therapy is a cognitive/affective/behavioral approach that quickly taps into core negative beliefs that drive maladaptive behavior. It is highly effective for the treatment of trauma, addiction, depression, and relationship issues. This method combines insight with affect in a way that profoundly shifts client’s point of view toward self and others, to a more compassionate and realistic perspective.

The training is facilitated by Lisa Firestone, PhD and Joyce Catlett, MA. of the Glendon Association. Voice Therapy provides opportunity to deepen your clinical skills; it includes video tape demonstration and valuable opportunity for case consultation.

Approved for 12 CE units for MFT’s, Psychologists, LCSW’s through R. Cassidy Seminars.

(open to students and interns and group rates available)
