The Brief Encounters® 3 Day Training aims to equip frontline workers with the skills and confidence to recognise  and  respond to  their  clients  or  service  users who are  under  stress, particularly  those experiencing relationship difficulties.  Participants will be trained in an evidence based, accredited framework which enables them to respond in a pro-active and empowering way, manage their time effectively and avoid becoming overwhelmed.

Who is this training for?

The training will benefit frontline workers in the areas of health, education, social, youth and community sectors. If, when you are at work or volunteering, you are regularly ‘turned to’ for support by those you encounter then this training will be helpful to you.


How will the training help me as a frontline worker?

  • The evidence based knowledge gained will strengthen your ability to anticipate, recognise and respond to clients, especially those who are struggling.
  • You will learn to use the Brief Encounters® framework and engage with confidence with your clients whilst being mindful of the boundaries of your role and time.
  • Time to reflect on your practice, and increase your awareness of the part you play in the interactions with your client.
  • An opportunity to use the Brief Encounters®  model for peer support
  • It will refresh, affirm and build capability as a practitioner.


In what way will the training benefit my clients and service users?

  • The focus on opportunities for preventative interventions means that problems are picked up early before they escalate or become entrenched
  • Adopting a solution based approach empowers the client and builds their resilience
  • Sharing key messages about relationships and transitions with clients can help them to understand their situations better and find a way forward
