FICE Congress 2016
Together towards a better world for chilren, adolescents and families
Based on four starting points – history, praxis, applied science and innovation - the topics will range from the findings of the previous FICE Congress in Bern (Switzerland) in October 2013 on ‘Ways Toward Inclusion’ to other innovative ideas in the fields of:
- youth and society
- attachment theory
- quality assurance
- rights of the child
- youth and globalisation
- 'hopeless' cases
- new approaches in child and youth care
- youth care and psychiatry, traumatology
- research (results)
Participants will also be challenged to think about innovative ways of implementing the UN Guidelines for the Alternative Care of Children and how to promote deinstitutionalisation.
