  • 1. 5th International EFeCT ConferenceCascais, Portugal Conclusions W1 - Practice based and evidence based practices Franky DOosterlinck, Bram Soenen, Wim Hansens & Katrien Sel Conclusions – Rui Lopes Funder: Partners: Organizors:
  • 2. what’s new? • LSCI in regular schools as a strategy for inclusion • De-instrumentalization of students (i.e. recognizing the person “behind” each pupil) • Teacher training as a part (and only as a part) of an intervention plan to improve quality of intervention: – Organizational level – Team level – Student level – (parent and community level)
  • 3. what’s new? • There is time-out and there is also time-in: going to school (connectedness/ guidance/ communication) instead of being suspended after displaying behavior problems • Use children and professionals (and diverse stakeholders) feedback to (re)organize programs, projects and activities (“PLEASE LISTEN”) – Mismatch between children’s perceived problems and staff’s perception of children’s problems
  • 4. what’s new? • Temporary placement (max. 5 days) as a time- out strategy for reeducation (recreational and therapeutic farm activities) • Connection with nature and relation with the elements as a form of therapy • Adult-child, adult-adult and child-child relationships as a basis for all intervention
  • 5. and so, what? • Systemic intervention to abilitate educational contexts (schools, NGO’s,…) • “Holistic” training programs (professional/scientific and personal dimensions) – teacher containment / support • Adequate staff/child ratios (e.g. school classrooms with 9 students; residential homes with 12-14 residents)
  • 6. and so, what? • Gather and analyze data collected among children, staff, parents, etc. (scientific research methodologies fundamental in/for practice) – Need for multiple informants – Need to relate gathered information • Utilize nature as a privileged milieu for educative and therapeutic intervention with children and adolescents
