The Art of Relational Practice: Relational Weaving

The term ‘Relational Practice’ is used within several caring professions, and knowing that fact might lead someone to believe that there is a single and universally accepted definition of what Relational Practice is. However, this is not the case, and instead there are different (but related) interpretations and definitions.  

Whilst there might never be a true consensus of what Relational Practice really is, given its complexity, one of our goals ought to be to find out as much as possible about the concepts that make up Relational Practice, and to ultimately consider how these can be better understood, connected, and articulated.

Relational Weaving offers a way of exploring some ‘essential aspects’ of Relational Practice, explain their relevance, and ponder how we can use them for the betterment of those we serve. Some of these may be considered values, some traits, some wisdoms, and others still are approaches, techniques, and ways of thinking and doing. This workshop will describe 25 ‘relational threads’ uncovered during an international research project and offers these as a type of framework for Relational Child & Youth Care.
