  • 10h15: How the Risk-Need_Responsivity-Model and the Good Lives Model are compatible with LSCI.
    Bram Soenen is an orthopedagogue and campusdirector of the closed facility De Zande, campus Ruislede. Since 2008 Bram is senior trainer in Life Space Crisis Intervention (LSCI). During his PhD he researchedLSCI in residential youth care and special education. His research examined the characteristics of the youngsters as well as the process and effects of implementing LSCI.
    During this lecture Bram will get into the 8 domains of norm-exceeding behavior and how it relates to working with the good lives model. The research on how both LSCI and RNR-M can be compatible will be explained as well as the integrative use of these models in every day practice. Stijn Vandevelde summarizes the lecture by showing how the above is a good practice of the integrative action oriented orthopedagogy by Professor Eric Broekaert.

  • 11h30: Moral Distress
    Simon Godecharle is master in theology, and doctor in biomedical science at the centre of biomedical Ethics and law of KU Leuven. He is co-ordinator health ethics of Emmaüs vzw. This organisation consists of 24 organisations in all branches of health care and welfarewith nearly 7000 employees and doctors.
    You don’t just become a caregiver. We all have our story, our reasons. We want to take care of and care for vulnerable youngsters with their own talents, visions and history. However when we enter the working field, something strange happens. We notice that there is too little: time, means, staff, … In certain circumstances this may lead to a specific form of stress, namely moral stress.
    Moral stress is experienced when you can’t provide the care that you want to offer. Your values bump into a reality that can’t or won’t co-operate. The cynical and dangerous part of moral stress is that your starting mission and motivation, finally demotivates. If moral stress lasts too long, caregivers experience the risk of drop-out. They get demotivated by their need to do the things right but are restricted in being able to do so.
    Dr. Simon Godecharle gives you insight in how to deal with moral stress. In that way we learn how to provide the care that will make us proud.

      YAR offers: YAR Coaching and YAR Housing. These programs show youngsters that they are responsible for their own choices.
      Making conscious decisions is the first step to take their life and their housing into their own hands. Both programs are operational thanks to a large network of volunteers. YAR focusses on personal development and strengthening the personal network of youth, to enable them to integrate in society.
