This is the fifth and final episode based on the  one-day ‘Pivotal Conversations’ conference which took place at Bridgend College on Wednesday 15th July on the theme of  Children, Mental Health & Behaviour.

Colleagues from many areas including The Police, Social Services and Education joined the conversation and over the summer we are presenting some audio clips from the event so everyone can benefit from the conversations which took place.

Summer SunIn this ‘Pivotal Summer Short’, we eavesdrop on two of Barry Stay’s plenaries after his sessions on complex needs. Then Paul brings the day to a close and delegates give us their feedback.

We hope that hearing from the first Pivotal Conversations conference will inspire you to get involved with the forthcoming events which will take place in the new academic year 2015-16.
