    *Subject: *Therapeutic Environments conference - what helps, what

Hi Patrick -

I am currently organising a conference called */Therapeutic 
Environments/* on the 5th December in London. I have attached the URL 
link which details the conference agenda.

Evidence suggests that the quality of the social, as well as the 
physical environment has a direct impact on the experience and outcomes 
of service users. Yet it is often difficult for practitioners to 
establish and protect therapeutic environments in inpatient and 
residential services. The conference will explore how the environment – 
both the physical environment and the social environment– can create an 
atmosphere, context, culture, surrounding and setting, which aids 
recovery and healing in different institutions.

*Speakers at the event*

    * Chair: John Gale /CEO,Community Housing and Therapy/
    * John Diamond /CEO,Mulberry Bush School Ltd/
    * Bob Campbell /Business andDevelopment Manager, PhoenixFutures/
    * Kannan Navaratnem /The ArboursCrisis Centre/
    * Dr ClaireCharlesworth-Moore /Consultant Psychologist,The Peaks,
      Rampton Hospital/

networks who may be interested in attending. As a means of saying thank 
you, I am happy to offer your contacts a 30% discount of the delegate
