Deaf Mental Health Care: Working with Cultural and Linguistic Challenges

12-13 September 2019 - The Lowry, Salford

Mental health in the ethnic and diverse population particularly involving the deaf community receives minimal resources and public awareness. this conference will help your organisation address and rationalise by practically applying the aspects of specialised assessment and adapted treatments in sensory impairment.

The agenda will be centralised predominately around the acclaimed teaching of Dr Neil Glickman and Dr Glickman’s therapy in deafness and mental health. As well as this, leading psychotherapy experts will also take to the stage discussing the stigma and discrimination of mental health and deafness and the opportunity we all have to enhance communication and awareness surrounding the culture and linguistic aspects of deafness.

Join us for our first Deaf Mental Health Care: Working with Cultural and Linguistic Challenges Conference to bridge the gap of teaching the specialist knowledge and skills necessary to enable a broader understanding of this specialised field. You will have the opportunity to question, discuss and debate the very latest developments, learn about the emerging adapted programmes as well as understand how the sector will transform in the next five to ten years.

The two day event will also include a dinner reception on the evening of 12th September, which will be held in The Compass Room at the Lowry from 6:30 – 10 pm.
The Evening Reception will include a welcome drink, a three course meal and evening entertainment, and will offer the opportunity to network with colleagues and peers.

Alternatively, if you would like to attend just one day of the conference, this will be charged at a cost of £149.
