Introduction to Framing and Framing Care Experience
Our introductory session will introduce Each and Every Child and the evidence-based framing recommendations. This session is a pre-requisite for attending our additional sessions, below. The content covers what framing is and what it mean for how we tell our stories; how can we change public thinking about care experience; how to use issue frames, values, metaphor and context and use these tools to tell a new story; and what triggers mental shortcuts – and what the consequences might be for communicators?
Next Session – Tue 12 Dec – 1400 to 1600
Additional Session: Framing Data and Causation
This session will support participants to explore ways to frame statistics and analysis when communicating about care experience to change the narrative. It will use insights from our body of research on care experience here in Scotland, as well as research on poverty. The session explores – how the public respond to unframed statistics and analysis; what motivated numeracy is and how we can navigate it; the role of explanation and causation; and how we can make sure our data tells the story we want it to.
Next Session – Tue 12 Mar 2024 – 1400 to 1600
Additional Session: Framing Care Experience Creatively and Consistently
The session will look at how you can bring frames to life creatively by considering bespoke exercises, examples and practice that you can use. There will also be an opportunity to share practice and ideas around how to use and flex the framing recommendations within your work.
