Professional insight, relevant practical tools, and opportunities for experience sharing and networking


What is our after-work-meetings?

Our after-work meetings are for professionals working with children and youth. Here, we come together across disciplines and organisations with a shared vision of gaining insights into how we can assist children facing various challenges and prevent increasing mental health challenges.

Each meeting addresses a current theme. You will consistently be presented with both theoretical and practice-oriented knowledge, with opportunities to network and exchange insights with fellow professionals.


Motivation and meaning-making in school

Billund: January 29, 2024, 16:30-18:30 – Copenhagen: February 6, 2024, 16:00-18:00

How can motivation be understood as a unique driving force for the well-being of children and youth in school, and how do we create meaningfulness? Motivation involves experiencing autonomy, feeling competent, and being part of a community in harmony with others. In this session, we will discuss how we can work with and for this motivation.

Autism and anxiety in children and youth

Billund: February 26, 2024, 16:30-18:30 – Copenhagen: March 12, 2024, 16:00-18:00

How should we understand the anxiety experienced by many children and youth with autism? Anxiety often arises when the child has been in a state for an extended period, overloading their nervous system. Anxiety can therefore be understood in connection with autism, and addressing anxiety can be approached by considering the individual’s autism.

Selective mutism – when the voice “disappears”

Billund: April 16, 2024, 16:30-18:30 – Copenhagen: April 23, 2024, 16:00-18:00

How should silence be understood, and what should one be attentive to when children’s voices disappear? We perceive children’s silence as a symptom of discontent, rooted in one cause or another. In this session, we will discuss how professionals or parents can work with and support children and youth who are not speaking.

School absenteeism in children and youth

Billund: May 6, 2024, 16:30-18:30 – Copenhagen: May 14, 2024, 16:00-18:00

How can we understand the rising trend with more and more children are not attending school? The reasons for worrying school absenteeism are not always the same, often intertwined with high complexity. The approach to helping the child return can also be seen as complex. In this after-work meeting, we will discuss how to address school absenteeism and collaborate across homes, schools, and municipal initiatives.
