DFTB, T. Psychological defences in education: Ben Symon at DFTB18, Don't Forget the Bubbles, 2019. Available at:
The audience at DFTB18 were privileged to attend a series of sessions from team at Simulcast, the premier podcast for all things sim and debriefing.
In this second talk of the session Ben Symon interviews Jannie Geertsema about why we become defensive at work and in the educational space education when we could be connecting.
This talk was recorded live at DFTB18 in Melbourne, Australia. With the theme of ‘Science and Story‘ we pushed our speakers to step out of their comfort zones and consider why we do what we do. Caring for children is not just about acquiring the scientific knowhow but also about taking a look beyond a diagnosis or clinical conundrum at the patient and their families.
DFTB19 has just a handful of main conference tickets left but there are still spots for some of the pre-conference workshops.
