Wide open spaces: Working creatively and staying connected

14 - 16 September 2017,  Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Dunblane Hydro

Together with Scotland AFT



"Wide Open Spaces: working creatively and staying connected"


Scotland AFT has chosen this title in part to reflect both the geography of Scotland and the variety of contexts in which Family Therapists can be found. Highlighting the opportunities and challenges that this presents.


From working systemically on the Island of Orkney to working systemically in the East end of Glasgow there will be many similarities but also differences that are important to consider.


Our aim is to create a conference that allows systemic practice across diverse contexts throughout the UK and further afield to come together.
