Kindness in Research Conference

Bush House (NE) 4.17, Strand, King's College London Bush House (NE) 4.17, Strand, King's College London, London, United Kingdom

In trauma-informed research we also acknowledge that anyone can be affected by trauma – including academics, clinicians, and PhD students – and that this is not an inherent sign of vulnerability or weakness but can often be a source of connection, empathy and kindness, leading to better data and more ethical research.

Join us for a discussion on trauma-informed approaches to research and methods. We will bring together a group of researchers and survivor-researchers who have addressed this topic in their work. We will have a mixture of talks, panel discussions and practical workshops. Attendees will leave with a toolkit that they can apply to their own research practice.
