Pressmeddelande   •   Sep 02, 2014 06:30 CEST

Den 9-10 oktober arrangerar Haro en europeisk familjekonferens i Stockholm för att högtidlighålla 20-årsjubileet av FN:s internationella familjeår 2014.

Några frågor till Ingvild Segersam, Riksorganisationen Haros ordförande:

Varför arrangerar Haro den här konferensen?

2014 högtidlighålls 20-årsjubileet av FN:s internationella familjeår. Vi vill självklart bidra till att lyfta fram frågan om familjens betydelse för samhället, och barnens behov av nära relationer. Det har dessutom varit ganska tyst om familjeåret, både i EU och Sverige.

Vad kommer konferensen att handla om?

Vi vill ge en förståelse av barns grundläggande emotionella behov, och föräldrarnas centrala betydelse för deras utveckling.

Vad hoppas ni få ut av konferensen?

Vi vill bidra till att sprida den kunskap som finns idag om barns behov av nära relationer. Det blir två högintressanta och matnyttiga dagar, med talare som har stor erfarenhet och kunskap inom sina områden.

Konferensen hålls på engelska; här följer all information du behöver för att delta:

European Conference of the Family 2014
2014 is the 20th anniversary of the UN Year of the Family. The Swedish family organization Haro hosts a highly focused event in Stockholm, Sweden on October 9-10 – European Conference of the Family 2014 – EU-FAM 2014.

Families – do they get enough support in Europe?
A key issue in European family policies is the role of women participation in the work force and daycare for children, often called work-family balance. Does the European family, as the key institution for raising healthy children, survive these policies?

Sweden has pioneered a development with more women in the work force and more children in daycare. Is it a good development? What are the effects? What does science know about the needs of children in order to grow to their full potential? The EU-FAM 2014 attempts to shed some light on these key issues for family policies and human development in the future in Europe.


EU-FAM 2014 Part 1 – Pre-conference seminar October 9th 2014

The Science of Emotion – Why family matters
Dr. Gordon Neufeld, Vancouver, Canada

Internationally acclaimed developmental psychologist and best-selling author, Dr. Gordon Neufeld from Vancouver, Canada, presents the basic behind a healthy child development and the role of family:

New revelations about the nature of emotion, including the role that emotion plays in healthy development and functioning, have shed fresh light on the significance of family as a context for raising a child. While it is true that families don’t always work, it appears to be equally true that only families can provide what is necessary to bring a child to his or her full human potential. In this day-long seminar, Dr. Neufeld distills the current scientific knowledge on emotion to three basic laws and discusses the implications of each of these laws for raising children.
