Student international week – Health and Social Care perspectives of refuge and migration in Europe @ University of Derby
Nov 20 @ 09:00 – Nov 23 @ 13:00

Student international week

Health and Social Care perspectives of refuge and migration in Europe

 

The purpose of the international week is to explore issues of migration and refuge that are relevant to existing social and political situations within Europe, and to do this within a frame that seeks to make more porous and critically challenge the traditional divides between self and others.

 

The programme aims to equip students with knowledge that will assist them, as trainee health and social care professionals, to work compassionately with refugees and those seeking asylum.

 

It is premised on the principle of ethical relationship: to encourage students to consider how to ‘experience with’, rather than ‘do to’, and to critically reflect on their own values as individuals and future professionals, working within a local, national and international socio-political context.

 

Areas of attention that will be focused upon within the event are:

– policies and politics;
– physical, psychological and social wellbeing;
– identity and belonging;
– working as health and social care professionals within this context.

 

A particular focus is on understanding common human needs experienced by self and others, and to consider how the socio-political context can affect ability to meet needs in particular:

– Basic physiological needs such as food, drink, shelter, clothing, warmth sleep;
– Safety needs such as protection from the elements, security, sense of stability, freedom from fear;
– Love and belonging needs, needs for relations with others, friendship, intimacy, trust, acceptance, giving and receiving of affection and love,
being part of a group;
– Esteem needs, including self-esteem linked to feelings of dignity, achievement, mastery, and the need to be esteemed or valued by others,
have respect from others, be seen as someone with status, prestige.

 

As part of the event participants will undertake insight visits to organisations within Derby that work with and/or on behalf of migrants, refugees and asylum seekers.

We would be grateful if you would invite students that are either in the second year of undergraduate study or above this level.

IV International Conference on Health Research:
responding to the changing world

 

The IV International Conference on Health Research: responding to the changing world aims to focus on research responses to the rapid changes at the global level, based on political, social, cultural, educational and economic transformations that influence health. It also provides an opportunity for academics and professionals from different health areas to bridge knowledge and promote interest in health care research and development. This conference will take place at the Portuguese Red Cross Northern Health School, on April 10, 11 and 12, 2019. Evidence-based practice in health is extremely important for a safe care, adequate and scientifically valid practice. All health processes and procedures must be properly contextualized, consistent and rigorous so that they are valid and recognized by the scientific and global community. The challenge is to build an innovative response in global health, health education, family and community health, responses to health / disease processes, health information systems and technologies, virtual reality and simulation. Following previous editions we intend to promote collaboration of excellency between academics and practicionners from the various health disciplines in the creation of research networks.

 

Are you looking for:

1) sharing research results;
2) possibility to publication your works;
3) networking with international researchers;
4) workshops that will give you practical experience about iterative learning in higher education: innovative methodologies.

MINOR APPLIED POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY

 

In this international minor we will look at the scientific knowledge on happiness and wellbeing and at the factors that lead to a sense of wellbeing, meaning and connection. Based on this knowledge we will look further into and develop interventions that can help individuals, organizations, communities and society at large to flourish.​

When I was 5 years old, my mother always told me that happiness was the key to life. When I went to school, they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I wrote down “happy”. They told me I didn’t understand the assignment, and I told them they didn’t understand life’

JOHN LENNON


When being asked the question what do you want most out of life, people from all over the world answer: to be happy! But despite decades of economic growth we are no happier now than sixty years ago. What is happiness and do we really know what makes us happy? Do we give happiness enough priority? Can we influence our own happiness and the happiness of others and how? These (and more) questions are being asked and answered by positive psychologists all over the world and will be addressed in the minor Applied Positive Psychology.

What is Positive Psychology?

Positive Psychology is the scientific study of wellbeing and human flourishing. This new branch on the psychology tree was founded in 2000 by Martin Seligman and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi. They were not happy about traditional psychology’s emphasis on what is wrong and on weaknesses. Psychology should also look at what is right and at strengths of people. Since then psychologists all over the world started to study happiness, wellbeing and the good life. According to Seligman we can indeed influence our own happiness by changing our actions and by making the right choices. We can flourish individually and together through experiencing positive emotions, engagement, relationships, meaning and accomplishment (PERMA model of wellbeing, 2011).

Is Applied Positive Psychology a minor for you?

Are you interested in psychology in general and in focussing on solutions and human strengths? Are you interested in why we do the things we do and in how we can change our thoughts and behaviour to become happier? Are you interested in helping people, organizations and communities to flourish and become their ‘best possible self’? Are you interested in studying in a multi-cultural community, then you will like this minor!!

Do you want to know more about this exchange programme?
