In the tradition of TeachMeet, an opportunity for detached youth workers to come together to receive training and learn from one another. Graeme Tiffany will lead two sessions, one on Starting Out in Detached Youth Work, which will focus on basic theories and practices; and the other on methods for Dealing with Difficult Conversations, be they sensitive, controversial or potentially conflict-creating.
