Maybo Conference 2018

Learning Habits for Safer Services: Debriefing and Reflective Practice

7th & 8th November 2018, Northampton, UK

Our annual CPD Conference for Maybo clients, trainers and invited guests working in health, education and social care will be taking place on Wednesday 7th and Thursday 8th November 2018 in Northampton.

This year’s Conference combines insights from guest speaker and our clients who share ways they have made a real difference to the lives of people they support and the people who support them. 

The theme this year is debriefing and learning as individuals, teams and organisations. Our Masterclass will focus specifically on approaches to debriefing for staff and the people we care for. The conference will continue the learning theme and how it can help us promote positive culture change and reduce restrictive practices.

Following the success of last year's conference we have increased the capacity of the event but we still expect it to sell out, so please register early to secure your place.

We look forward to seeing you there.
