2nd Call for Papers – Deadline Extended – Fri 22nd April 2016
WELL-BEING 2016: Co-Creating Pathways to Well-Being, The Third International Conference Exploring the Multi-Dimensions of Well-Being
Hosted by Birmingham City University, Monday 5th September – Tuesday 6th September, 2016
This year Well-Being 2016 explores the multi-dimensions of well-being focusing on the achievements of well-being through collaboration – to co-create experiences which are positive and meaningful to the individual.
In Well-being 2016, we seek answers to a range of questions about negotiating and navigating the experiences that underpin the achievement of well-being – How positive encounters are or might be embedded in our contact with the environments where we live, learn, play or work; how individuals are supported in ways that enables them to take control of their personal well-being; what constitutes a pathway encounter; how are the impacts expressed or captured, the techniques involved, the use of electronic media, verbalisation and narratives or through artistic endeavour, design, making and the crafts, the unique role of the practitioner and the growing relevance of a medical humanities approach?
We aim to provide a platform for dialogue between academics and practitioners, knowledge exchange and methodological exploration through a combination of keynote speakers, breakout sessions and workshops.
For all queries contact firstname.lastname@example.org

Authors should provide a clear and brief outline of the paper, including identifying Objectives, Methodology, Results, and Conclusion. For interactive workshops, authors should also explain the activity and the necessary logistics and resources to do so.
