    Understanding and Responding to Pain and Pain-Based Behaviour: A Central Challenge for Residential Child and Youth Care Workers

    Tuesday, February 28, 2023
    11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. CT

    The presenter coined the term “pain-based behavior” as a result of researching the elements and dynamics of effective group care settings (Pain, Normality and the Struggle for Congruence: Reinterpreting Residential Care for Children and Youth, Anglin, 2002). This webinar will explore the significance of children’s psycho-emotional pain and the dynamics of pain-based behavior in residential care settings. We will consider such questions as: How does pain-based behavior relate to trauma? Is all challenging behavior pain-based? How can workers and agencies respond effectively to children’s pain-based behavior? How can an agency support workers who are experiencing their own pain and pain-based behavior?  Please bring your own experiences and questions to this dialogue.

    Presenters:


    James Anglin, BA, MSW, Ph.D.
    Emeritus Professor, School of Child & Youth Care;
    University of Victoria, BC, 
    Canada

    Professor Anglin began his career as a child and youth care worker in a mental health centre in Vancouver after which he developed a 6-bed group home for adolescents in Victoria. He then pursued graduate studies, worked in social policy in Ottawa and with the Children’s Services Division, Government of Ontario, in Toronto. Returning to B.C. in 1979, he joined the faculty of the School of Child and Youth Care at the University of Victoria where he is Emeritus Professor and former Director.

    His major research interests have focused on a re-appreciation of residential care for children and youth (e.g. Pain, Normality and the Struggle for Congruence: Reinterpreting Residential Care for Children and Youth, Routledge, 2002). Currently, he is involved in researching the implementation and impact of a principle-based approach to residential care with colleagues from the Bronfenbrenner Centre for Translational Research at Cornell University.

    He has published in North American and international journals and child welfare texts on a variety of child and youth care issues. He is on the editorial boards of Child and Youth Services, Residential Treatment for Children and Youth, International Journal of Child and Family Welfare, Journal of Child and Youth Care Work, International Journal of Child, Youth and Family Studies, Scottish Journal of Residential Child Care, and Reclaiming Youth at Risk.

    The Challenges of Practicing Ethical CYC: An Interactive Session

    Wednesday, April 5, 2023
    11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. CT

    Child and youth care has embraced the importance of ethical standards for decades. We have Codes of Ethics and access to a range of trainings and post-secondary courses to guide us. What we often neglect, however, are opportunities to talk frankly about the challenges we face each day as we endeavor to engage ethically and relationally with children, youth, families, our colleagues and the agencies in which we work. The pandemic has only further exacerbated these challenges.

    Join us for a lively panel presentation by leaders in the field outlining some of the inherent challenges of ethical practice. 

    Presenters:

    Dr. Carol Stuart
    Vancouver Island University

    Varda Mann-Feder
    Concordia University

    Doug Magnuson
    University of Victoria

    Kelly Shaw
    Nova Scotia Community College
