Peer-fagligheden i fokus – når de levede erfaringer bliver til erfaringskompetencer

I anledningen af Forskningens Døgn 2019 inviterer Peer-Netværket Danmark og Barfodsforskerne* til konference i Odense den 24. april og i Haderslev den 23. maj

I de seneste år har der været en stærk stigende tendens til at ansætte mennesker, der selv har erfaring med psykiske vanskeligheder og recovery. En bevægelse, der peger i retning af en ganske omfattende kulturændring i både de regionale og kommunale indsatser. En ny faggruppe hvis viden og faglighed primært er erfaringsbaseret, spirer frem. Den peer-faglige tilgang er med til at udfordre det eksisterende, men kommer også med store gevinster.

Hvad kan peer-faglighed tilføre ?

Five key takeaways from a comprehensive new meta-analysis of youth mentoring

Our review included all outcome studies of intergenerational, one-on-one youth mentoring programs written in the English language between 1975 and 2017, using rigorous inclusion criteria designed to align with developmental theories of youth mentoring.  A multilevel meta-analytic approach was used to estimate the overall effect size of youth mentoring programs, as well as explore predictors of variability in effect sizes.

What we found: Analysis of 70 mentoring outcome studies, with a sample size of 25,286 youth (average age of 12 years old) revealed that the mean effect of mentoring on youth outcomes was .21. We conclude that mentoring programs remain a modestly effective intervention for youth at-risk for a range of psychosocial and academic problems across diverse outcome domains. There may be particular benefits to targeted, time-limited approaches that draw on the service of volunteers or paraprofessionals with helping experience.

YIM – Youth-initiated mentoring: An idea whose time has come

Klik for video

A growing number of studies have demonstrated the benefits of youth-initiated mentoring (YIM). Rather than being assigned a mentor, young people are provided with the skills and scaffolding to recruit caring adults from within their own networks. Last week, we highlighted a study in which Dutch researchers successfully demonstrated the effectiveness of this approach as an alternative to out-of-home placements. They created a video that describes the rationale for and findings of their method. Læs videre “YIM – Youth-initiated mentoring: An idea whose time has come”

Match Brussels – An advocacy event

Mentoring Meet and Match Brussels – An advocacy event

The European Center for Evidence-Based Mentoring organizes in collaboration with national and regional partners a Mentoring Meet & Match in Brussels, on 18/19 March 2019. It is the second time that such an event takes place, connecting mentoring organizations, universities, businesses and policy makers from all over Europe.

This two-yearly event in Brussels focuses on strengthening the communication between the mentoring field and EU decision- and policy making. It is also a major step for the mentoring field to advocate for the personal, social and economic effects of mentoring. The events translate the impact of mentoring on the lives of people to EU public policy. Læs videre “Match Brussels – An advocacy event”

The many invisible forces: Why mentoring “best practices” are sometimes not enough

My resolution for 2019 is to finally complete and submit my new book, tentatively titled “Rethinking Mentoring.” One thing I discuss is in the book is that, despite careful screening and interviewing, evidence-based training and case management, and even intuition informed by long experience, there is a fair amount of luck involved in determining whether a relationship ends up among those that flourish or the nearly half that fail! The stakes are high; so a growing number of studies have tried to discover additional indicators that might help us identify mentors and youth who will thrive, as well as those at high risk for early termination. Here are some key factors that matter.  – – -by Jean E. Rhodes Læs videre “The many invisible forces: Why mentoring “best practices” are sometimes not enough”

I halvdelen af landet har mere end hver tyvende voksne en psykiatrisk diagnose

I over halvdelen af landets kommuner har over fem procent af de voksne indbyggere en psykiatrisk diagnose. Især angst, depression og bipolare lidelser fylder, og antallet er på landsplan steget med 22 procent på bare fem år. Det er vigtigt med en diskussion om, de konsekvenser udviklingen har, lyder det fra flere sider. Læs videre “I halvdelen af landet har mere end hver tyvende voksne en psykiatrisk diagnose”

VIDEN OM MENTORORDNINGER

Gennem fem år har jeg formidlet artikler, nyheder og forskning  om mentorordninger. Det er gennem  fem år blevet til mere end 750 indlæg som kan søges på siden.

Prøv at skrive ‘unge’ i søgefeltet, eller ‘uddannelse’, ‘forskning’ – eller emner du interesserer dig for.

‘Mentorlandet’ er en guldgrube af viden og informationer om frivillige og lønnede mentorordninger. Specielt indenfor det sociale område  i Danmark. Også i nogen grad internationalt.

GODT NYTÅR 2019

Reflections on Research Podcast

The Reflections on Research podcast offers practitioners, policymakers, and leaders in youth mentoring a fun and accessible way to learn about the latest research and reflect on the practical applications of new research to their work.

For de der arbejder med unge og mentoring er disse podcasts om amerikansk forskning måske interessante. Den første podcast er med researchere der har forsket i emnet i rigtig mange år…

5 features of highly effective mentoring relationships

 

by Jean Rhodes

Mentoring programs can vary widely, but all depend on a caring relationship. How can programs ensure that relationships are sufficiently strong and enduring to accomplish whatever other goals they are hoping to achieve?  Fortunately, decades of research has converged on a core features or “common factors” that appear to be present in all effective helping relationships. Each factor is helpful in its own right and, when combined with the other factors as well as evidence-based approaches, become potent levers of change. Harnessing the best of relationship science will ensure that all mentors have the tools to develop strong relationships.

Værdiskabelse i praksis. Udviklingsprojekt i Voksenservice, Fredericia Kommune

De senere år har vi snakket meget om, hvad der I GENNEMSNIT virker i velfærdsindsatsen. Voksenservice i Fredericia Kommune har dog sat en endnu mere perspektivrig dagsorden: Hvad skaber konkret værdi for den enkelte?

Værdiskabelse forudsætter indgående viden om og dialog med den enkelte, og indebærer en skræddersyet indsats hinsides indsatskataloger, manualer og standardiserede metoder. Læs videre “Værdiskabelse i praksis. Udviklingsprojekt i Voksenservice, Fredericia Kommune”

USA: A sneak preview of a new meta-analysis on natural mentoring

Sneak Preview

…Given that natural mentoring relationships show small to moderate associations with positive youth outcomes, are far more common, and require less infrastructure and investment than formal mentoring relationships…

Natural mentoring relationships are far more common than those forged through programs. Indeed, only about 5% of American youth are assigned to mentors through programs (Raposa et al., 2016), whereas an estimated 75% report having a natural mentor (Erickson et al., 2014).  Despite their ubiquity, meta-analyses have focused almost exclusively on the impact of formal mentoring relationships.

International Konference Relationel Velfærd i Århus

Jeg har meldt mig på denne interessante konference i Århus med keynote af blandt andet Karl Tomm, Hilary Cottam m.fl … om relationel velfærd:

De tre foregående år har vi udforsket relationelle velfærdspraksisser med gæster fra Storbritannien, Norge, Sverige, USA og Danmark. I år udvider vi vores fokus til også at omhandle lederskabets stærke betydning i relationel velfærd. Vi har lært, at relationel velfærd kalder på en re-orientering af lederskabet.
