Dr. Linda Caldwell
– Getting the Results You are Looking For: It’s Logical!
How do we know if our outdoor and wellbeing programs truly make a difference in people’s lives? Do we really increase people’s health and wellbeing by what we do? Intentional programming and solid evaluation techniques help to answer that question. With limited tools, human and health service professionals may offer programs because they believe, based on their professional experience and “their heart,” that what they are doing works. However, that is not always the case. With increased demand for “evidence-based management,” practitioners need tools to provide either evidence that their program works or how they can improve what they are doing. In her key-note, Dr. Linda Caldwell introduces a tool called Logic Model which help practitioners plan, implement and evaluate a program or intervention´s effectiveness. Dr. Linda Caldwell will offer a workshop following the keynote for those interested to apply the model to their own programs.

– Tipping the balance: reflective practice and practitioner health and wellbeing –
The purpose of reflective practice is contained in the term, ‘practice’, meaning service to others. In contrast, the typical business of reflective practice is tipped towards a Humanist self and activities akin to personal therapy. This ‘It-Seems-To-Me’ (Arendt) approach favours practice in the ‘service of me’. Be that as it may, it is clear that all practice is mediated through the self of a practitioner, our health and wellbeing being instrumental. How, then, do we manage this contradiction? Can reflective practice be a source of wellbeing for us as practitioners without losing its fundamental purpose and if so, what shape and feel does it need to take?
