Practice Exchange commences with a two day live masterclass (for the four Participating Organisations Combined) on 25th and 26th March 2019. Dr Allan Wade and Dr Linda Coates will explore a framework for understanding and responding to violence which will underpin and inform the series of Practice Exchange sessions that follow.


Following the masterclass, 8 (min) to 12 (max) staff from each participating organisation meet monthly for six months (April, May, June, July, August, Sept 2019) for two hour sessions. Sessions are designed uniquely for each organisation, based on the questions and interests of the organisation, and focus on how the ideas from the masterclass translate into practice for the organisation.


The participating organisation shapes the focus of sessions based on priorities and contextual needs arising in practice.

Practice Exchange is:

  • designed to flex with the changing and iterative focus of the participating organisation and operates within the objectives of the initiative.
  • not a vehicle for endorsement or certification of work or practice.
  • not a format for clinical supervisions and/or performance management of practitioners’ work.


Participants meet in person at an off-site venue coordinated and catered for by DVSM Sightlines with video dial-in consult with Dr Allan Wade.
