Upcoming EASA Anthropology of Children and Youth Seminar: Friday 15 January 10.30-12.00 (location: to be confirmed):
The Value of Transcultural Family/System Therapy in Child and Youth Care
Dirck van Bekkum & Judith Limahelu (see below for professional bio)
Rarely anthropology and family therapy met but when they do research, educational and clinical innovation can be achieved. In their interactive presentation, Van Bekkum and Limahelu will discuss three of these innovations in co-educating transcultural family therapists. They concern: (1) Transgenerational Cultural Diversity and Intersectionality; (2) A transitional model in multicultural settings; (3) Systemic reflexivity in research, activism and clinical practices. Children and youth (including their generational networks) are at the core of these approaches. After short ‘vignette’ presentations of these three innovations, the presenters will answer questions and exchange views with the audience.
If you are interested in presenting at one of our seminars yourself, please contact the Network chair: Dr Sandra J.T.M. Evers, [email protected]

Teaching in high stakes school systems has been empirically associated with direct instruction, student apathy, a narrowed curriculum, stress experienced by teachers and students and a lack of emphasis on social, emotional and physical goals. A need to provide practitioners with student engagement strategies in challenging instructional environments is becoming increasingly important.
Selected papers will provide teacher practitioners, administrators, parents and others with strategic approaches leading to student social and academic success in high stakes assessment environments.
Material presented in the book will be useful for readers in conceptualizing and integrating teaching and learning activities for students in challenging educational environments.
