London Conference: Exploring the perspectives of children and young people

International One Day Conference hosted by the University of Liverpool & Child and Family Training in London on 26th June 2019.

This one-day conference brought together some of the latest international developments in research and practice with the In My Shoes computer-assisted interview and associated Apps for handheld devices. Participants heard how these can be used to help children and young people communicate about emotions and events, including both positive and adverse experiences.

Presentations summarised some of the key aspects of development, research and validation of these approaches. Workshops covered specific examples from practice in childcare and child protection, family courts, special educational needs, planning interventions with children and young people and applications in both physical and mental health.
