Description

Intro:

Evidence shows that relationships matter - they affect our mental and physical health and well-being.

When people are finding it hard to cope, particularly in their relationships, research shows that they often turn to a practitioner in their lives whom they already trust.

As a practitioner this can be difficult to manage when balancing a heavy caseload. However, adopting a Relational Approach and learning the skills of the brief intervention model, ABLE, strengthens your ability to support clients during these times, whilst also minding yourself in the process.

Our ABLE (Adopt a relational approach, Build, Listen and Empower) training gives you the skills, tools and framework to build more effective working relationships, resulting in better outcomes for all.

We share how to establish boundaries, listen actively and reflectively, and empower service users to create solutions to their issues.

Evidence-based and CPD-approved, ABLE training helps you to be mindful of the relationships which form part of your service users’ lives and raises awareness of the impact relationships have on health and well-being of children, families and communities.

We use behaviour modelling and a mix of adult learning styles including auditory, visual and experiential techniques to support the learning experience and to enable change.

Course Aim:

Equip you with the knowledge, skills and confidence to adopt a relational approach in your practice and to use a brief intervention model, ABLE, to respond effectively to service users in distress.

Explore, through the course material, experiential learning exercises and group discussions:

  • Brain science evidence linking relational well-being to health outcomes
  • Benefits of reflective functioning - making sense of what is going on for service users and practitioners during their practice
  • Application of relevant aspects of Infant Mental Health, Attachment Theory and Brain Science to enhance your understanding of service users’ stories and life experiences
  • Evidence-based information on relationship stages and key messages from conflict research, with the purpose of helping service users strengthen their own relationships

Who is this training for?

Our ABLE training supports practitioners across the healthcare, education, social, youth, justice, disability and community sectors.

How will this training help me in my work?

Our ABLE Training programme will:

  • Give you the skills of a brief intervention model and share a new process for managing situations with distressed service users
  • Strengthen your ability to respond effectively to clients in distress using evidence- based knowledge
  • Help you to manage your time better, establish boundaries and be mindful of your own health and wellbeing
  • Enhance your understanding of the impact of relationships on health and wellbeing and your ability to apply this knowledge to practice
  • Increase your ability to understand what is going on for your service users and to empathise and relate to your service users
  • Provide a space where you can reflect on your own practice and increase awareness of your own role in your interactions with service users. You will have an opportunity to identify areas for improvement whilst also having your capability as a practitioner refreshed, affirmed and expanded.

What way will the training benefit my clients/ service users?

  • The emphasis in our ABLE training is on early intervention so service users’ issues are picked up on and responded to before they escalate or become entrenched
  • The person-centre, reflective practice approach of our brief intervention model ensures that service users will be listened to and empowered to come up with their own solutions
  • Key messages about relationships and transitions can be shared with service users, helping them to understand their situations better and find a way forward
  • Service users will be provided with opportunities to share concerns and challenges they face in establishing and / maintaining healthy and supportive relationships
