I love live tweeting from conferences. Not only does it help me to focus, it also makes me feel connected to other delegates – and to people reading from the comfort of their own homes. Today, I was one of those far-away people: reading tweets from the OT Show in Birmingham with my dog on my lap.
To help me keep track of the sessions I was trying to follow (several ran simultaneously), I created a Storify of the mental health-specific sessions I ‘watched’. Tweets from the following sessions are available >> at this link << (opens in new window):
- Julia Harrison – ‘From damage to disorder; working with personality difficulties in a forensic setting‘
- Dr Katrina Bannigan – ‘Occupational Therapy and mental health: what’s the evidence?‘
- Rachel Booth – ‘Acute psychiatry – bread and butter of OT‘
- John Chacksfield – ‘Mindfulness as an occupational enabling strategy‘
- Nicola Oliver – ‘Supporting people with mental health conditions into employment – doing what works‘
