Putting the ‘social’ into interventions: norms, networks, and relationships – FREE mini conference November 27th at the University of Sheffield

CATCH is delighted to be hosting the next event in the ESRC funded seminar series ‘Applying Relationships Science to Contemporary Interventions’ (ApReSCI). We have two fantastic keynote speakers lined up:

Claire Harding is Research and Development Manager at Big White Wall. Big White Wall is a safe online community of people who are anxious, down, or not coping who support and help each other by sharing what’s troubling them, guided by trained professionals. BWW comprises social networking, self-assessments, online programs, information, and much more. BWW is provided in many areas of the UK via the NHS, employers, and universities. It is also free to all UK serving personnel, veterans, and their families. 

Dr Neil Coulson is an Associate Professor of Health Psychology within the School of Medicine at the University of Nottingham. He is both a Chartered Psychologist (British Psychological Society) and Registered Health Psychologist (Health and Care Professions Council). He is an international expert in the role of peer online support communities and has published widely in this field.

For more information about the ApReSCI Seminar Series, see our website.

To register for the event on November 27th, go to our registration link (please remember to submit your abstract when you register if you'd like to present your work)

For those of you who've not attended one of our events before, the series is designed to bring together academics and people making contemporary interventions (from commercial, NHS, or third sector groups). The events suit anyone with an interest in how we can mobilise the power of social relationships to improve health and wellbeing. If that's you, come along!

These events are totally FREE to attend. Places are limited to register early to avoid disappointment.
