Welcome to episode 6 of the 'Agents of Hope' podcast.
My name is Tim Cox. I am a Trainee Educational Psychologist, and I am passionate about psychology, hope and society. This podcast aims to promote hopeful thinking and conversation about positive change in the field of applied educational psychology, education and broader society. If you are interested in the podcast, you can subscribe on your podcast streaming platform or follow me on twitter @timceducation.
In this episode, I speak to Colin Newton from Inclusive Solutions. Colin talks about his passion for inclusion and person-centred approaches that define his philosophy, career narrative and EP practice. The episode discusses the Planning Alternative Tomorrows with Hope Framework (PATH), how Colin facilitates this process with individuals and organisations and what theory the process can draw upon. I discuss my new thinking around hope and how these can map onto the process. Colin illustrates this episode with numerous examples of work he has carried out using this tool with young people and institutions. Colin also discusses his community work in helping to establish a vision for a more hopeful future in Nottingham. You can also watch a 20-minute video section of this episode so that you can see what a PATH (from 34 minutes to 54 minutes on the audio) looks like here:
