WEBINAR - The Dark Side Of Gifts

  • to
  • Online Meeting

    Own Homes, Global (map)

    51.553432 -0.134076

  • This is an online webinar. All you will need is a computer with speakers or a headset.
  • “Every gift contains a danger. Whatever gift we have we are compelled to express. And if the expression of that gift is blocked, distorted or merely allowed to languish, then the gift turns against us and we suffer.” (L. Johnson, Thoughts on Giftedness)

    In ABCD we talk about the gifts of the heart – what people are passionate and care about – the gifts of the head – what people know and think – and gifts of the hands – what people can do or make. In this sense, everyone has gifts to share.

    In this Webinar we explore what prevents people from knowing, understanding and expressing their gifts and discuss the consequences of the blocks or distortions. We start to consider how we create environments in which everyone can express their gifts?

    This Webinar will be presented by Rebecca Daddow, Recovery & Justice Lead at Nurture Development. Rebecca’s commitment to social justice and interest in how behaviours, practices and cultures develop, has focussed her research and work in areas of community development, criminal justice and recovery from substance misuse for almost a decade. This continues into her work with Nurture Development, as she takes the lead in seeking to understand, through practical application, how an ABCD approach might generate better rehabilitation and recovery outcomes for individuals and their communities.

    As a result of her work across the private, public and charity sectors, Rebecca brings both strategic and operational experience of evidence based system and programme design, organisational, culture and behaviour change, and working with ‘vulnerable’ individuals and communities to co-create sustainable change. An example of her work can be found in the report 'Whole Person Recovery: a user centred systems approach to problem drug use' which she co-authored in 2010.

    Rebecca is an avid tweeter, a proficient Prezi designer, website developer, and all-round creative person. She sits on the Advisory Council for the Foundation for Recovery Coaching and is trained in Recovery Coaching. She has a bachelor’s degree in History and Social Anthropology from Oxford Brookes University and a Masters in Criminology and Criminal Justice Studies from Kings College London.

    We are doing this webinar with Nurture Development who are ABCD specialists with more than 15 years of practical knowledge and experience in the implementation of ABCD and other strengths based approaches in Europe, Africa and North America. We are the only strategic partners of the ABCD Institute (founders of the ABCD approach) in Europe and work towards the proliferation of the approach across all communities.

    I am attending since I would have liked to see a distinction between genuine gifts and other 'offerings' such as: bribes, backhanders and unlawful favours...

    This sounds very interesting. I was wondering if you could use a strength building exercise to help people realise what they and others could bring to a community? You tell a story about something you have done you are proud of and then hear from a group the strengths you have used. It's powerful and enjoyable.
