This philosophically-driven approach to caring, health and wellbeing is based on humanising practice. Focusing on what make us feel human and what life feels like from the inside out (existential understandings from lifeworld approaches) provides novel approaches to consider issues relating to care, health and wellbeing.
Humanising practice is supported by work settings which encourage connection to personal experience and research which privileges subjective experience and knowing; such as phenomenology, narrative, auto-ethnography, embodied knowing and arts–based approaches.
This is our fourth conference; people from previous conferences have said:
A fabulous conference. I leave this day feeling nutured…., inspired …. refreshed… glad to be human
I feel I have found my academic home, it’s a new home and I don’t know where everything is or where to put my ‘stuff’ , but it feels like home
It all fits ! So much lovely work is happening. The threads come together and support this work/idea/way of being. Loved hearing others’ stories and work in action
Thank-you for inviting me to participate –these are very powerful events
Caroline Ellis-Hill from the Centre for Qualitative Research has been sharing her work at the 41st Australasian Society for the Study of Brain Impairment conference in Adelaide.
I was privileged to be asked to be a keynote speaker taking about lifeworld led rehabilitation and also facilitate a practical workshop around staff wellbeing and Humanising practice, guided by a lifeworld approach. Participants enjoyed the workshop, as can be seen from the photograph! The theme of the conference was ‘Connecting and collaborating in rehabilitation’ and firm connections with researchers and clinicians in Australia and New Zealand will create a wonderful opportunity to collaborate across the globe.
I was also invited to be a visiting academic at the Living with Disability Research Centre, La Trobe University , Melbourne where I presented a seminar and met staff in the department. It was great to see what was happening in terms of service provision and disability culture in Australia. Our BU Humanising practice work was very well received and I’m looking forward to working with colleagues at La Trobe in the future.

The Centre for Qualitative Research is pleased to announce that its Deputy Director, Caroline Ellis-Hill, will be keynoting at the 41st ASSBI Annual Brain Impairment Conference in Adelaide, Australia on the 4th -5th May 2018. Ellis-Hill will speak on “Lifeworld-led rehabilitation – a new approach to support psycho-social well-being following brain injury”.
Caroline remarks: “A lifeworld–led approach to rehabilitation has a very different underlying logic and offers us the ability to prioritise subjective experience which in turn creates new understandings and connections. Our lifeworld is our everyday flow of life as we experience it, or what our life feels like from the inside out”.
We wish Caroline a safe and fruitful trip to Australia!
