Event Details

The programme consists of an award winning blended eLearning module which takes approximately 2-3 hours to complete including reading material, followed by a one day facilitated skills workshop.

The online module provides you with the latest knowledge about what makes relationships work and why it is important to keep in mind the adult relationship when working with individuals and families. Incorporated in this module are a series of evidence based relationship insights to help understand what is really going on.

The module then introduces the Brief Encounters® model which is explored further at the facilitated workshop. The eLearning module prepares you for the workshop and needs to be completed prior to attending.

The Skills Workshop is designed to build on the learning from the module. It is a skills laboratory where you can see how to integrate the Brief Encounters® model alongside the knowledge and relationship insights from the module into your work setting. Using case examples, group work and skills practice, you will be able to see how to support those you come in contact with; to explore and understand their experience, about what might help them work through their difficulties. This workshop, facilitated by two experienced trainers, will provide an opportunity to reflect on your work and also how to use the skills and relationship theory in peer support and supervision.

This framework is designed to:

  • Raise awareness and build on skills already being used by practitioners
  • To provide guidelines for using time well
  • Help practitioners to assess their own limits and limitations
  • Build active listening skills
  • Improve confidence in supporting supporting those who turn to you
  • Help make a difference for practitioners and those they support

Workshop / Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course participants should be able to use an effective brief intervention model, Brief Encounters® in frontline practice to:

  • Recognise signals of distress
  • Respond by using active listening skills
  • Review and assess the need for continuing support or signpost to other services where appropriate
