Event description


Course Aim

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 the 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 this training help me in my work?

  • 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.

What way will the training benefit my clients/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
